Well you could try to get a vacuum gauge and see if your car reads what it supposed to and if you buy one it could tell you what it could be.

Spray some crc around your inlet manifold/ lower carby area with it idling. If it starts to idle well it's a air leak. Or adjust your tappet clearances if this doesn't help

Worn valve guides allow oil to drain into the cylinders, causes blue smoke, fouled plugs will idle rough.

What is the recomended oil I should use on a toyota corolla 1986


Due to tight tolerances on Japanese engines the factory most likely recommends 5W30 I on the other hand recommend :
If the engine has less than 50,000 miles 10W30.
If it has over 50,000 miles on it and isn't burning oil (black smoke)
i use 10W40.
If it's over 150,000 and is a little sloppy ( burns a little oil)
I use 10W40 in the winter and 20W50 in the summer.
