Hi there:

For carburetor-style fuel systems, the issues you’re describing are typically caused by float bowl issues, dirty jets or clogged or dirty fuel filters. It could also be a problem with the air filters that are causing the acceleration issues. If you’re in the US, you might want to have a mobile mechanic complete an engine is slow to accelerate inspection so they can determine what’s causing these issues on your Toyota Corolla.
