Hi I have toyota corolla 1.3l 4k motor. I recently changed the starter. After a few swings it starts. Does not start instantly. Now I notice the car misfiring. I have bought new lead cables, what could be causing this

Check spark plugs for fouling, and if wires are original, replace them.

Possibilities are ignition coil, or ignition module, vacuum leak.

Or could be mechanical, bad valve, low compression.
