Question about 1995 Toyota Corolla
I just had my brand new distributor installed, new spark plugs and spark plug wires replaced and it was fixed 3 days ago. I was able to drive it for at least 20 miles a day for 3 days and it was good but today after driving for less than 4 miles and I slowed down even with my foot on the gas pedal. It does not pull or does accelerate quickly forward or it is having difficulty going forward. I tried the reverse and it is fine. Then I turned off the engine and after a few minutes I started the engine it worked good. I test drive around my place and the problem seemed to be gone. But what if tomorrow on my way to my workplace, the same problem will happen again. What shall I do to prevent this from happening or if it happens while I am on the road, what will I do?
Take the car to autozone and have the fault codes read
that will give codes that you can have repaired

You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.

Did they "turn" your rotors? They may have "improperly" turned your front rotors. This is common and they should correct this where you had the work done.

· Open the hood and remove the bolts that hold the engine cover in place, if your Dodge comes with an engine cover (depending on model and year). If so equipped, pull the cover off the engine.
Grab a spark plug wire by the base of the wire and pull the wire up and out of the engine. (You may need to wiggle it back and forth while pulling up on it to get it out of the engine.)
Trace the wire back to the power distributor and pull the spark plug wire off the distributor. Make a note of the plug orientation.
Install the new plug wire in the place of the removed one. Match the new wire with the old one to make sure they have the same size. Press the plug wire over the distributor electrode and onto the spark plug firmly, so that the ends are secure. Installation is the reverse of removal procedure.
· 5 Repeat the above procedure for all the other spark plug wires. It is best to change all the spark plug wires at the same time.
