Best Answer

A 1988 Toyota Corolla might run well one day and rough another day because of temperature changes that cause the vehicle to have leaks in the seals or gaskets. This might also be due to bad gasoline purchased the second day or even water in the gasoline. A clogged fuel filter might even cause this issue.
