Question about Cars & Trucks
Gasoline itself a solvent, therefore its an excellent injector cleaner in of itself. No additives I have ever used worked, ended up replacing things anyway. Save some money, don't buy the lucas treatment, get some new injectors installed. Might not be a bad idea to change out your fuel filter also.

Still need the codes.
Injectors can go "bad" in a couple of different ways; all they are is an electromagneticaly controlled nozzle. When the ECU "fires" the injector, it pulses a ground circuit for 4-8 milliseconds, the electromagnet powers up, the valve at the bottom of the injector opens, and the fuel shoots out, under pressure. The wire can be bad/chafed/corodded/ The electromagnet may be weak. The nozzle may be stuck. Lots of things. But, to put in an injector for a number 4 cylinder misfire (p-0304 code) would be one of the last things that I would do.

I recommend getting a repair manual from an auto store for your vehicle. They run $15 to $20. It will tell you exactly how to do everything you asked and also give you the values that should be expected. Hope this helps.

I had to do some digging to find this info: The code is P2716, which is a problem with the 'transmission pressure control solenoid D or it's circuit.' It is located on the transaxle valve body. There apparently is a technical service bulletin (TSB) # 1406 concerning this. If your Corolla is still under warranty, the dealer will fix it, which is, according to what I could find, replacement of the computer that controls the transmission. The bucking problem you described may have actually been a transmission shifting problem, a symptom of this code the cars computer threw. If you did get some debris drawn out of your gas tank due to the low level, the injector cleaner might help, but it has nothing to do with this code. I would recommend you have the fuel filter replaced (to address the low fuel tank, possible debris drawn into fuel line issue), and check w/ the dealer about the TSB, it covers '05 thru '07 Corollas.

I had a similar problem in a 1994 Taurus, and after spending nearly 300$ on ignition parts, it turns out the problem was a bad spark plug wire that cost me 8.88$ to replace.
