A cylinder misfiring can cause this sympton, check/replace spark plugs and plug wires. Also, sputtering and shaking can be caused by engine timing, have the timing checked. Another cause can be fouled fuel injectors on fuel injected vehicles.

Why does engine sputter in your 2001 corolla?

Quite a few things could cause this to happen to the 2001 Corolla. The engine could experience poor performance and sputtering due to: - dirty or clogged air filter - worn or mis-gapped spark plugs - bad gasoline - gummed up throttle body - sensor malfunction (IAT sensor, O2 sensor(s), MAF sensor) A dirty MAF sensor could cause sputtering in 2000+ Corollas. As these models are equipped with the 1ZZ-FE VVT-i engine (2ZZ-GE in the case of the Corolla XRS). Often overlooked, many can be carefully cleaned, instead of being replaced, and driveability often improves considerably.
