1985 toyota corolla stalls lack of power falls on its face after 20 minutes of startng engine up only when it heats up
My 1985 Toyota corolla will start acting up like its going to stay out of gas and lacks on power. when starting car and allowing it to run for 20 minutes or so it seems like when it heats up a little it will do this it falls on its face with lack of power stalls ans shuts off. after it cools down it comes back to normal.fuel pump,fuel filter,throttle position sensor,mass air flow ,fuel pressure regulator,distributor assembly complete with all internals crank,cam,ignition module,cap,rotor,plugs,wires,ignition coil,water pump,thermostat,alternator,battery,o2 sensor. all have been replace brand new except the igniter.

    Do you think the igniter has anything to to with this? This is about one of the last few parts i have not installed.

    mine is doing the same thing. Your not alone. I'll let you know if I get mine fixed, you do the same. Vapor lock, if you want to try a fuel cooler they sell them.. they look the same as a external oil cooler. MAKE SURE YOUR RETURN LINE TO THE TANK IS NOT CLOGGED, blow air through it with gas cap off.
    Dont forget about :
    Fuel pressure SENSOR(s)
    fuel pressure damper???????

    HELLO, thanks for your heads up. And that i am not alone. I have spent a lot already and there is no way i can let him go with all new parts on it. I been chasing my tail for 2 years now. As i get extra money i put in.When you say fuel pressure sensors which ones?.. I have already done the fuel pressure regulator.Also which fuel pressure damper are you talking about? This project has my brain cracked in 2 pieces And i stress it every day. But i will let you know if i get it figured out.
