Is the check engine light coming on? If so your o2 sensor may not be working right because of the bad exhaust problem? Change distributor cap also. Check timing. Hope some of this helps.

Distributor not firing on a 92 tercel

Don''t know who or how this check was done but should compare resistance between terminals on coil with another small difference was my problem 1991 tercel you can also hook 12v batt. pos. to +term.on coil with sparkplug and wire conn. directly to coil grounding outside of plug to neg.term. of batt. now connect wire to -on coil and momentarily touch to batt. - you should get spark across gap of plug .This will determine for yourself if coil is indeed good or bad. I was very surprised another coil from junkyard cured problem!!!

I have a 1995 toyota tercel that has been running rough and now won't start at all. I looked at the sparkplugs and they were full of fuel. Could it be caused by a faulty ignition knock sensor?

Not 100 percent sure what typr of ignition system is
in that car, but check that all the spark plug wires are
all connected properly at the ignition coil. Check the
wiring at the coil and at the chassis ground to make sure it is all tight.Good Luck.

Toyota Tercel '92 keeps quitting

This sounds exactly like a faulty ignition coil.

The coil is pretty easy to change. Just obtain a replacement, and observe how the existing coil is fitted. Detach any wires fitted to the existing coil, and plug them into the placement. Then unbolt the old coil, and bolt the new one into place.

It will only take you 10-15 minutes or so to replace the coil.
