Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door

1 Answer

My car is at a lost for power going up hills

My 89 corolla works fine on flat roads it gives a slight buck or tremble when slighty steping on the gas pedal and also its weak in climbing hills and gives off a strange odor when doing so sometimes my pedal is floored going up a hil and the car creeps and takes a while before chipping into low gear , all of the above is even worse when my car has people in it

Hi my 02 avensis verso totally loses power when hot going up a hill or incline..really embarrising...cleaned ecg valve any other ideas


Hi,
The air filter can sometimes be a good place to start, as a slightly blocked/dirty/damaged one can give the car near normal operation on flat roads but when going uphill make it slow right down.

would suggest you try that first. If that doesn't work it could be a faulty/blocked fuel filter or dodgy turbo or slipping clutch or air/fuel mix issue (faulty sensor).

It could be one of the following ,1 :check fuel pressure while driving and see if it drops off (specs are 30-40psi )at idle while drop slightly on acceleration.also if this bucking occurs after driving for a period of time the ignition pick up module maybe faulty . If you could supply additional info I might be able to pinpoint it a little better

My 1996 geo prizm has lost power going up hills, on flat roads it works good. What could be causing this problem??


First check the condition of the following:

1) Spark plugs, leads and coils.
2) Air filter
3) Fuel filter

If they all check out to be fine, then next check the operation of the manifold pressure sensor and the mass air flow sensor.

Also check cylinder compression for signs of engine wear.

My 92 corolla revs loudly but engine does nothing.


Sounds like you have massive clutch slippage and you will have to have the clutch replaced and resurface the flywheel for maximum clampping power at a machine shop.
