Hi I have a 2002 Corolla with an apexi, when driving it can start to splutter a bit and I have to put my accelerator down fully just to maintain the revs, then as the car slows I have to change down a gear...

Most common problem is the IAC(Idle Air Control) valve.But if you say some times work I will suspect the throttle is clogged. Remove the Air hose,apply full throttle and hold, spray carburetor cleaner on clot using thin long nose player clean inside wall and throttle. don't spray directly inside because the carb cleaner is to aggressive for some of the gasket.
Good Luck

Using to much fuel also not having the revs to get through the gears, , lack of power, no acceleration

It sound like a clogged catalytic converter. It chokes the engine with exhaust gasses. How many miles on the car? There is a test that shops can do to check- they will drill a small hole before and after the catalytic converter and have a small device to measure its flow.

Hi can anyone advise, when i bought the car, i checked the oil when i got home and found it to be a bit hi, i drained some oil out to the right level and when i drove it up the road, and got to bout 3000...

Hi Big, Have the fuel filter replaced and if the fault persists take the vehicle taken for an electronic scan. You may that the fault is the air flow sensor, or an intermittent fault with either the crank or cam sensor. The scan will pin point where the problem is. Regards Johngee10

Cam shaft sensor & air conditioner

I replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor. I also cleaned the Throttle Body with carb cleaner. I had my wife hold down the accelerator, while running I sprayed down the throttle plate and the entire area around it. Now my TB finally idles smoothly, and it hasn't died yet!! Check engine light is gone and I passed the emissions test!! Yea!!!
