    I currently own a 1999 Corolla Lovelife 1.3 2e engine, though the car is ok and the engine is in good condition, I only get 7-9kl/litre in city driving .. The car also struggles to move from a dead stop when on full loads of people.

    Balak ko sanang ibenta yung sakin dahil may kakilala rin akong nagbebenta ng kanyang 1998 Corolla GLI 1.6 4afe engine, yun sana ipapalit ko. Nabasa ko kasi sa mga forums na ang XL at XE variants na kahit maliit ang displacement ng 2e engine, dahil sa carburador ito, halos magkapareha lang ang fuel consumption sa GLI .. Mas magagamit ko pa yung extra power ng 1.6 kapag full load ang kotse while maintaining the same fuel consumption..

    Nagdadalawang isip lang ako dahil kahit na mas mahina yung 2e engine ko ngayon at kahit nagkakaroon ng di maiwasang problema dati, madaling ayusin ng kahit na sinong mekaniko at kahit saang talyer dahil karburador ang makina .. Samantalang wla pa akong experience kung paano magloko ang EFI engine ng GLI ..

    For a car na more than 10 yrs old na, ano usually mgkakaproblema sa EFI na makina ??? Sa 2e carburetor ko kasi, madali at mura lng yung maintenance, cleaning, etc ...

    Need help po guyz ....

    Are you sure the car was well maintained. I had a 1996 GLi that I sold last year. I had absolutely no engine problems. No repairs done on the engine in 18 years.

    when i was in college, my car was a 1.3 XE. talagang underpowered yun. nakakahiya pa kapag may kasama kang mga chicks, coz hirap na hirap nga sa arangkada. when i graduated from school, i immediately invested in a 4AGE Silvertop. didn't have that problem anymore.

    kayong mga bata ngayon...
    nung panahon namin, "underpowered" meant local rubber shoes during the intrams.. adidas hurricane (local 'to noon) worth 89.95 kesos, start of cool... adidas rom, status symbol na 'yon..superstar, bigtime ka na! stan smith.. hulog ng langit! (either may uncle ka sa US, o smuggler si kuya).

    I'll get the GLi so long as it was a properly maintained model. The usual problems on old EFI cars would be erratic or divebombing idling but this can be fixed (cleaning sensors, ensuring your ground wires and HT wires are good, cleaning the intake manifold, IACV, etc.).

    We also had a AE101 and AE111 1.3L back in the day and it served its purpose. I prefer EFI cars as these are more consistent with the FC and they're more straightforward to maintain in my case.

    I had the same problem with power so i invested in a supercar with 600bhp also dated chicks who weight at most 115 pounds. Pag 118 pounds parang underpowered na yung Ferrari. Then again I weigh 400 pounds so baka ako may problema. Hehe

    Kidding aside make sure well maintained ang makuha mo na gli.
