  1. 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.

    well i think we have similar cars? i get about 35 to a gallon and the tank isnt very big i kno. Oddley i had a spanking new clutch as well when i bought car, but im afraid i cant help u with the revs mate.
