Check and test the coolant temperature sensor, IACV, TPS and MAF sensors

Is the MIL indicating and have you tried to check for trouble codes?

Get the fuel pressure tested to see if it is within specs.

This car has no engine check light on dashboard,
I saw a diagnostic box, but I have no manual to check it.

Sorry our database does not have iny information on this vehicle so we are not able to provide you any information of the diagnostic procedures.

If you have an OBD-IUI code reader or scan tool, you should be able to retrieve the trouble codes if any are present.

Fuel injected vehicles should have an MIL and if it is not showing ondash, you need to start by checking is condition.
