Asked by Jan 23, 2019 at 09:36 AM about the 1998 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Turns over but won’t start

1 Answer


You have to start with some basic troubleshooting. If it is cranking over, then the battery and starter are OK. Next, you have to check for spark. Verily you have spark from the wires to the spark plugs. If you do, then check for fuel. If you have spark and fuel, could be a timing belt issue.
