2008 Toyota Yaris Base 4 Cyl 1.5L


Why did my car die while going down the road and now it wont start?

My Yaris is about three years old and has about 73,000 miles. I was driving down the road when suddenly it started to slow down. I pushed down on the gas pedal, but nothing happened. I stoped at the red light and turned the key off. When I went to try and crank it, it would turn over fine but it would not start. I still had about 1/4 of tank of gas.

you probably have a dirty fuel filter, or it maybe a defective fuel gauge,or a fuel pump, giving you a false fuel reading. also, you may want to have your fuel injectors cleaned or replaced. this should help.
