Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

2000 corolla sluggish when accelerating, fine at higher RPMs

The car runs good after some hesitation "off the line"...Low RPM's equals sluggish response when stepping on the accelerator. At higher RPMs it runs OK, but even at the higher speed it will get sluggish when stepping on the gas. It will slowly pick up eventually. Plugs are new, air filter is good and using premium fuel.

Try changing out your distributer cap and rotor button. Let me know if that solves your problem.


Thx

Very sluggish, goes nowhere when stepping on gas and now it won't go over 10mph. had a new fuel filter put in dec 05,2010, and all new fuel lines, gas gage hasn't worked in 2 yrs and was ran out of...


the converter is what is restricting power from engine. causes of a bad converter are: decreased engine power, indicated by low rpms on the tach. hesitating or bucking during acceleration, the car will loose power going up a hill. if engine runs hotter then usual and coolant is up to par, it may indicate a bad converter. also black smoke from tail pipe is another indication of a bad converter. good- day!!

2000 s10 4.3 6 cyl automatic. hesitates to hit 2nd gear. revs high with no power then eventually kicks in and is fine.


had same problem on 74crewcab the vacumn line was tee d into another giving low vacumn . when it did reach sufficent pressure the trans would shift but the engine rpm was very hjgh and result was it slammed the trans in gear. Inspect your vacumn hose from modulator to the intake manifold/carb itcould be leaking or some one may have rerouted by accident.it must have a vacum draw equal to manifold pressure to shift in time with the actual rpms of the engine hope this helps...that it shifts at all makes me thinnk the modulator valve is working --just the vacumn line(s) arenot draw full manifold pressure

Runs rough at low rpms. Misfires but goes away at about 2000 rpm.


Sounds to me like it could be a Mass Airflow Sensor issue. Or Air fuel mixture problem. Is the harness to the MAF and Trottle control sensors hooked up right? These are just simple solutions that may work. Check all of your fuses as well. One could be blown causeing you DLC not to operate. DLC =DATA LINK CONNECTOR. Find the fuse... read the code.... solve them problem! GOOD LUCK! hope this helps.
