Thanks for your input, I now feel much comfortable after reading your comments.
I did took my car to the dealer, one of break tech took the car for test for about 15 minutes, came back, saying he did not find any thing wrong with it, he told me that he been with Toyota for past 20 years only on break job, never heard and never seen.
He never told me any thing about what you have described in detail. I thank you again.
I have not had any more incidents since I posted
in Edmunds trouble section.

#742 of 3858 Fuel filter in 1999 Corolla
Aug 17, 2000 (2:42 pm)
I went through the owners manul, never mention
any thing about:
1: Time belt
2: Fuel filter
How often I have to change fuel filter?
Can any one knows? I did not ask the dealer, because I have better luck with Edmunds friends advise than some local dealer or such.
I would like to hear from some one,

I replaced the fuel filter and the PVC valve about a month ago, a few days before the fuel pump was replaced. Also, spark plug wires and distributor cap are about 1 yr old, replaced during a tune-up. This is mind boggling, because the hesitation is only whenever you're stopped and want to start going. Once you're going, you can decrease and increase speed with no problem. Thanks again for the input.

Does anybody know the horsepower of 1994 Corolla STD? I am planning to buy 2001 Corolla, I am not sure if the new has higher horsepower than my current car which is low in horsepower. The new one has 125.

This is a copy of the statement that I sent to Toyota, I will let you know what the response is when I recieve it. They said 5 to 7 days. I have a 2000 Corolla CE, Silver Steam in color. The car had only 3 miles when I bought it. Before I left the dealership I inspected it and found two paint chips on the rear door. I notified my salesperson and the dealership fixed the problem. I have owned the car for 5 month and have multiple paint chips mostly on the hood but also on the sides of the car. In the manual it states that paint chips are not covered. I think this problem is more than your typical paint chips and would like to know how Toyota is planning to resolve this problem. I understand that I am not the only person to have this problem with the new Toyotas. The color of my car is Silver Stream, Opalesence.

Did you see my post from Dupont concerning paint
etc. If not you should search back in this topic
and find it.
Looking forward to your reply from Toyoto.
They never replied to me on same subject.

My 1990 Corolla was doing the exact same thing you say your car is doing! Idling was fine, but when I would start to accelerate, the engine would just die. Start right back up, though...really weird. After several mechanics said I was nuts, I took it to the dealer who immediately found 2 error codes both pointing to the vacuum pressure sensor. I haven't had the problem again, knock wood! The downside, the vacuum pressure thingy only comes in a pricey assembly...$380 parts and labor. That's the dealership for you! Good luck!

I thought I'd let you know I heard from Toyota and they want me to call them to discuss my e-mail that I sent them. Let you know tomorrow what they said.
#749 of 3858 Corolla engine problem
Aug 25, 2000 (10:16 am)
I bought a 1997 Corolla DX at a local "respected" dealer this week. It was fine for the first two days. Then Yesterday, I was driving on the high way at about 75 miles/hour, suddenly the engine makes a loud knocking sound and the car begins to lose speed gradually. The more I press the gas pedal, the louder the sound became. Also pressing the pedal won't accelerate the car. When the speed drops to 50 m/h, I pulled aside and turned off the engine. Then I immediately turned on the engine, and drove back to the high way. The problem disappeared. I have since driven about 80 miles on high way and the problem never reoccurred. I am wondering whether anybody else had similar experience or may know what might be the problem. I spent a fortune on this car and the thought of the car I just bought might be a junk makes me feel chilly.
I appreciate any help and input.

Bring it back to the respected dealer. Have him look at it to resolve the complaint. Otherwise U may not have any recourse later.
