Slow pickup on takeoff


You don't specify make, model, year, engine or transmission, but if an auto, a common cause of this is failure of the 1-2 shift solenoid in the trans, meaning that it cannot find low gears, hence the sluggish takeoff.

It is not an expensive part, but it is best to have the vehicle on a hoist as the trans pan must come off. Also this fault should cause the check engine light or the overdrive light to blink a trouble code.

1991 Toyota Corolla loud and sluggish


You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.

EASY! first take down the valve body and remove the soleniods, they may not need replacing, inspect and cean them, it could just be debris! reinstall everything, if the problem still occurs replace just the solenoids
