I have a 1991 Toyota Tercel LE that has 116,000 miles. Had a tune-up in December, and an oil leak and A/C fixed last month. Recently, the car has no pick-up. It seems to be having trouble switching gears. Hills are the worst. Any thoughts?
have the same problem?

Timing belt? When was it changed?
Cat converter may be bad, can be checked with a back pressure check to confirm.
Is the check engine light on?

Thanks for the quick response. The engine light is not on. I had the timing belt changed about at about 110,000 with the front seal on the oil pump. The rear seal was changed about a month ago, and that's when I noticed the problem beginning. Is it possible that the oil leaked on the timing belt? How would I know? The catalytic converter is about 4 years old.
