Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla
Hi, just today our 2001 Toyota Corolla S that has a 5 speed manual transmission started getting sluggish and jerking during accelleration. We were on our way to work this morning and stopped for coffee, out of the car for 5 minutes. Hop back in the car and it won't start, we keep trying and it finally does after about 3 to 4 minutes. This is when the sluggish and jerking symptions started during accelleration. The car worked fine the rest of the day accept for being a little sluggish. We stop on our way home to pick up our kids and we are out of the car for 10 to 15 minutes... get back in and nothing. Tried to jump it, nothing. I had noticed that the connections to the battery were corroded a couple of days earlier when changing out the headlight. We got the car to start after cleaning of the terminals but the car was still sluggish when accellerating and the car is still jearking. What could be causing this problem? Thank you!
Wqithout looking at it directly , could be neglect to the car it self, clean them batt, cables not just the outside of them take them off the battery . clean the right , ck the wires make sure thay are also not corroided , as for the running like **** , sounds lik maybe a vacuum line came off , could be bad sparlk plugs wires etc, if it just happened in a spur of the moment thing , I would ck those vacuum hoses , something like tha will make it run like you are saying , tune it up , plugs and wires etc, clean it so you can see it .listen for any strange noise and do be carful
