Intermittent Loss of Power at Acceleration : 2002 Toyota Corolla

Car Model: 2002 Toyota Corolla
Location:Middletown, OHSubmitted on August 12, 2013

Middletown, OH

I have had a new fuel pump with filter, new catalytic converter, and new O2 sensor put on and I still have a loss of power at acceleration sometimes and the code reads bank 1 for the same freakin O2 sensor I just had put on. I've had the car 9 days and dropped $1100 into it. Please help!

    I would pull a spark plug and look for signs of burning oil or coolant. You may have a underlining cause that hasn't been found.

      It does burn oil but it seems the more we fix on it the worse the problem is. It doesn't burn a lot of oil but some.

    Did the shop say these repairs would fix the issue or have you done this your self?

      The fuel pump was so I could have a new filter, the O2 sensor was because it was throwing the code for it, and the converter was because it was clogged almost all the way. I had it done by a shop.

      They were hoping it would fix the issue, it's an unknown issue at the moment.
