Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla. It is a manual transmission. My issue is when I step on the gas in order to accelerate to merge with traffic on the interstate the engine will rev but the power is not transfered to the car. I have to let up on the pedal and then reapply more conservatively. I am not mashing down on the pedal. This occurs even at the mid position. I have had my car tuned up. Fuel system flushed. Air filter changed. O2 sensors replaced. Catalytic Converter replaced. All this prior to my issue. Is there a problem or is this ok?
If you notice you are needing to add oil occasionally then most likely your rear main oil seal is leaking into your transmission and oil is getting onto your clutch causing slippage.
Get this fixed and it should stop.
