I would check to make sure your spark plug wires are not coming loose from the coil packs on the back of the engine, i had the same problem with a '97 cavalier and then the check engine light started to flash meaning it had a catalyst threatening mis-fire.

also check to make sure you have the correct order, these things will run with the wires mixed up but they are gutless.

a new fuel filter might not hurt either, they are easy to change located near the back axle, one nut and a quick connect fitting.

If smell is sulfur or rotten egg smell - probably need a cat converter. It is stopped up & will cause the syptoms you've described.

Toyota Carina loss of power


lets start with the heating up problem!
replacing the thermostat and relay has nothing to do with it. common causes of heating up are improper valve setting timing, mismatch air-fuel ratio, worn-out piston rings, poor oil flow, poor radiator coolant flow.
i suppose you have changed your car motor oil. recheck if its on the right amount.


loss of power:
Common Causes
loose piston rings (causing insufficient compression: indications fog like smoke), air-fuel ratio incorrect, blockage in air intake.

check also for air on the fuel hoses if you experience often jurking problems regularly clean fuel strainers or filters.
