SOLVED...help wit stalling problem

Postby psycho68 » May 6th, 2014, 1:35 pm

need some advice
i changed the head gasket and valve seals on a 5afe ae91 corolla. since then car shuts off at idle after a long drive. gives trouble to start back but after a few minutes starts easily and cars works normal after. swapped the distributor, cleaned tb, getting enough fuel prob still persists. not sure wat else to try to resolve any assistance appreciated

Check your idle air valve.
Check the coolant temp sensor.

i recently work on one the guy bought a brain distributor and a couple other thing. So his electrician/mechanic told or advised him to do. After i checked it out it turned out to be the wiring harness had some shorts.

sounds like the car isn't idling up like it should.


It only puffs smoke on start up?
What about after sitting idling for a while and then accelerating?

nope wont result in shutting down issue.
The valve seals are easily torn if not careful when installing them.

Don't knw if that engine uses coil packs...if it does its worth checking cuz if one is bad it can cause a hot engine to stall since this is when tiny holes in the coil pack stem expands and causes ur spark to leak.
