2000 toyota corolla

Asked by Aug 04, 2015 at 04:08 PM about the 2000 Toyota Corolla VE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Toyota corolla. It was driving fine until one day it started shaking on the
road. I decided to park it on the side of the road to check why it is shaking and I didn't
find anything wrong. Just as i was about to start the car again, the car would attempt to
start but wouldn't start fully. I finally got it to start but these loud crackling sounds
come out of the hood when I drive it. Plus, the car does not have enough power to
climb up a hill. I already checked the oil, battery, spark plugs and engine and they are
all fine. All four of my fuel injectors have a small crack in the plastic part. Someone told
me the crack in the injectors would not contribute to its inefficiency. Could it be the fuel
injectors acting up? If it is, do I need a new one or I just need to clean it up? What else
do you recommend I check?

For a car to start shaking suddenly with no warning is serious, lug nuts coming loose would be what I looked for first, then if they are tight, I would grab the top of the tire and push and pull in and out and listen for a clunking sound which could be wheel bearings. Hopefully it is something as simple as your balance weights coming off, but I would have a mechanic check it before driving at any speed more than a limp.
