Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 Toyota corolla 1.3, I am having
problems with the car as it doesn't pick up speed,
especially when driving uphill, it gets kinda stuck at

engine to see if it will pick up speed.

It sounds like you may have a plugged catalytic converter. Just go to an exhaust shop and have them check it out.
