What might cause a '92 Toyota Corolla to die when you give it gas but idle fine?

clogged fuel OR air filter,vacuum leak,probably to the distributor,clogged muffler or resonator if you've already checked the catalytic converter.Is it automatic???

would have to agree with that most likely clogged fuel filter

Change your fuel filter because your filter is all clogged up.

Does it do this after running for a while? I had a similar problem which was down to overheating (which in turn was due to a loose head). Theory goes that the fuel in the carbourettor was evaporating due to the high heat - after letting the engine cool for half an hour it started again. May or may not be the cause but HTH

Fuel pressure regulator may be bad, also check the spark plug gap.
