Asked by Jul 15, 2013 at 12:50 PM about the 1995 Toyota Tercel 2 Dr STD Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 95 toyota tercel that has 185000 miles on it. Every so often it will lurch while
pulling a hill. Kinda like it's heart skips a beat then it runs fine again. Recently it has
started doing it more often. Any thoughts?
