Question about 2003 Toyota Corolla
My Toyota corolla AE100 has problems restarting after driving it for some time. And while driving it loses throttle i.e even if you press on the accelerator the vehicle behaves as if it is choked, some sort of blockage in breathing.
I have changed the plugs, air, oil and fuel filters to no avail. When stationery with the engine running, pressing on the accelerator produces a brr/bump sound.
When I temporarily disconnect the pipe/tube connected to the Sensor Assy Vaccum (89420-12070/100798-2560 5V), the problem disappears.

I assume that you have a 1.8 engine. The oil filter is in a round metal housing under the engine; you have to remove the housing to access the cartridge type oil filter; the 1.8s do not have a "spin-on" filter.

Check the timing and compression of the engine. It sounds like you either have a blown head gasket or a the timing jumped.
