    Default Issues regarding corolla gli 2013

    So I recently bought a used corolla model is 2013 variant Gli in immaculate condition. I am not a toyota fan since the beginning well I have reasons. I wanted to go for Civic Vti Prosmetic oriel 2010+ models but people told me that the spares and resale value of civic is not upto the mark. Also corollas are more fuel efficient then newer version of civics. My rolla gives me upto 10Km/l in city with ac with the mix of HOBC.
    The issues I am facing are:
    - Knocking problem for that I am going to fill all the tank with HOBC now.
    - The mileage problem. Car has 15" tires and rims stock rims with michelin tyres the oil needs to be changed done 3k Kms.
    The car makes a hiss sound like some pressure is being released when it has a cold start.
    Overall I am satisfied with the car but these two issues are making me kind of worried.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Stay blessed! Be happy =)

    That hiss sound is from the intake manifold, it usually comes from the 2nzfe when one or more of the few thin membrane sort of filters are torn inside of the manifold itself.

    all of the factors you've mentioned tell me the car has been driven well above 200k kms at least. It would be needing a good amount of maintenance, and to tell you the truth, even after you spend a good deal of money on it, its still not going to perform upto your expectations. You need a less driven corolla for that, which you can maintain yourself so it stays healthy.

    The car's metre is not tempered that I am sure. The hiss sound is gone after i got my oil changed Now using Zic FN. The drive is crappy agreed. The knocking is kinda very little now since i added hi octane its partially my fault since i kept 30ltrs of petrol in a can which was taken out from my old civics tank. Tbh everything is kinda okay so far the pick the sound of engine engine was silent before the oil change and now dead silent after putting zic.
    Is that manifold the only reason for that hiss?

    Thanks btw
    Stay blessed! Be happy =)

    I wonder why this crappy car has good resale. The cars drive is literally soundless both engine and body. AC is chilling. Its good I just checked I am getting 12-12.5 km/l as average or thats what my metre tells me so. Any other thing i should consider?
    Stay blessed! Be happy =)

    get your throttle body serviced & plugs checked and replace(use stock only ) if required

    use good air filter (genuine is recommended )

    always keep air filter clean after dusty drive (this will keep throttle body clean )


    knocking and rpm drop issue will improve ...

    only Toyota authorize service /experienced person must remove and clean throttle otherwise it can get damaged easily and mess ecu settings ....
