(Translation) Greeting, the problem of my corolla is as follows I turn it on and everything is going well but there comes a time when the car fails. RPM's go up and down, there is no acceleration and feels as if the engine is emitting a strange sound from the muffler, but if I turn it off and I turn it back on the fault disappears and then returns. Thanks I hope you understood my problem. Thank you.

Buenos Dias: There are multiple issues that could be causing the problem in your 2007 Toyota Corolla. Usually the engine stumbling you’re referring to is caused by fuel injectors that have become clogged or dirty. This is known as a "bogging" condition and can only be solved by either cleaning the injector nozzles or replacing them with OEM replacement parts from Toyota.
