My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there. Many common faults will cause your 1990 Toyota Corolla to consume excessive fuel. The most common causes are leaking fuel injector, vacuum leak, a faulty MAF sensor, fuel leak, spark plugs, plug wires, or an ignition coil. If you would like to have a thorough check for this problem, a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the excessive fuel consumption and perform any repairs required to resolve the issue.
