Re: NEED HELP! 1998 Corolla!
Here is the simple way to diagnose a no start. Spray starting fluid in the intake thru a vacuum line while having someone crank the motor>
If it runs you have a fuel problem. If not its spark related> to diagnose ignition problems try this. Pull a spark plug and plug the wire back on. lay it down with the threaded part of the plug on metal(which grounds it allowing it to spark). Crank and look for spark No spark it could be several things, ie bad coil, bad wires, bad crank sensor. You should also check to see if it has jumped time, or water in fuel, and just give it a once over looking for broken wires bad grounds etc. The above ignition stuff will only work on cars with plug wires I wouldnt try that with a coil on plug setup.
