The engine mount on the passenger side of the car can wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts and the faulty mount will need to be replaced.

1992 Toyota Corolla Problems
If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
The EGR System tends to get restricted or blocked with carbon after 100,000- 125,000 miles which will cause an emissions test failure for NOX. If the EGR system is equipped with an EGR temperature sensor it will trigger a Check Engine Light for improper EGR flow. The repair is to clean out the EGR passages and the EGR Temperature sensor. Our technicians tell this repair is pretty straight forward and takes about 1-1.5 hours. It is al...
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks and require replacement.

1992 Toyota Corolla Reviews
1992 Toyota Corolla. I just bought this little car for $600. 5 speed base model. I don't believe it but I've measured the mileage 4 times. I got 49.5 mpg on a trip from outside Louisville to Shannon IL outside Chicago. I held it at 55mph the whole way just to see what it could do. I drove 75-80 on the way back with about an extra 500lb load and got 43 mpg on the way back. It's getting 30 mpg in city/stop an go short runs. I can't believe it got basically 50mpg. This car runs smooth as a top. Has anyone else tried a long run 55mpg steady mpg test? I'm amazed and love these little corolla's.
I bought Sandy in Florida at 96,000 miles. She now has 190,000 and starts every day in the cold Midwest winters. I have only had minor repairs for this wonderful car and haven't had car payments since the year of 2000. The only thing I do not like about this year of car is that the door handles are plastic and break easily. I have had them replaced twice but that still isn't bad for the miles I have put on her.
I've had my 1992 for about 8 years and in that time i've had little problems with it. As far as "problems" go, i have replaced the CV boots a couple of times and the wiring for the spark plugs otherwise this has been a great car. It has 179, 000 miles on it, and has been driven across 3 statelines totaling over 4000 miles!!
