It bogs down when driving slow speeds spudders and pops when accelerating

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

For a few days.... I got code PO302 and I have replaced all 4 Fuel Injectors, all 4 Spark Plugs and the coil pack on the #2 cylinder

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2002 Echo

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Echo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I got code PO302 and I have replaced all 4 Fuel Injectors, all 4 Spark Plugs and the coil pack on the #2 cylinder

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thats about it.... The issue has gotten better since i have replaced some of the parts but still misfiring and not running well

Hello, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this today.

So it sounds like we may have an issue in the valve train. If you have replaced the injector/plug/coil then our leftover possibilities could be a sticking/bad valve, an intake leak or a compression issue. Do you have a compression tester that can be used to check it?
