My problem

My car when i make a complete stop, then go, it hesitates to go. So Im pressing the gas pedal pretty hard. Why is it doing this?

If the engine revs but the car does not move, it could be a transmission problem. Start by checking the fluid level to make sure it is full, and maybe change the transmission fluid if you have not changed it in the last 30-50,000 miles.

If it does not rev when you press the gas pedal, it could be a fuel or ignition problem, but more information is needed. Is your check engine light on?

What year corolla and how many miles?
