Corolla 1.6gs Revs Dying And Poor Fuel Economy


Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone shed some light on a very annoying problem.

I recently bought a 1997 Corolla 1.6gs 3 dr. 35000 miles on the clock(genuine)

Have had a service and new clutch fitted before purchase.

Problem is, starting off is a pain, jerky, and the revs die when slowing. I also only get 230 miles to afull tank if I am lucky.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

Is that sort of mileage common for other people with the same car.

Any help or idea's would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Stokesy.
