Sluggish acceleration and gurgling sound at low speeds, NO check engine light on ?

Asked by Apr 03, 2016 at 05:30 PM about the 2009 Toyota Corolla CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla with approx, 280,000 Kms (mostly highway), car
has always had it's regular oil changes and maintenance.  Lately, at low
speed and take off from stop, the car has been very sluggish with poor
acceleration and a gurgling sound coming from under the hood while
accelerating.

No check engine light has ever come on.  The dealer did a Throttle Body
Cleaning service a few weeks ago, and (apparently) changed an exhaust
gasket (donut) at the same time.  I have pulled and cleaned the MAF Sensor,
but doesn't seem to help ??  Anyone else have this issue or know what might
be causing this ?
