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

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