I have a 94 Corolla and it struggles to accelerate and go at high speeds. When taking off from a full stop, it takes a while to start gaining speed (at the anger of the cars behind me lol). Also taking it up to 60 mph is very frightening as the engine begins to make very, very loud sounds.
I don’t know if there’s a problem with the car because it’s old and the idle speed and acceleration just isn’t there compared to other modern cars, or if I’m just not pressing hard enough on the pedals.
I’m suspecting it’s the fuel filters or even the transmission.
Any help or suggestions as to what the problem may be and how to make the car faster is greatly appreciated.
1.6 L Engine
Has not received any tune ups or real maintenance besides oil changes (my parents really don’t care about maintaining cars)
