How much does it cost to replace a clutch for 1999 Toyota Corolla, it has 175k miles

Integrity, 1999 Toyota Corolla, Owasso, OK

Cost to repair or replace engine. I brought car to mechanic, who drained the oil and never but it back. This ruined my engine to the point that I have to put 2Qts of oil every 3 to 4 days.

1999 Toyota Corolla Reviews

Just a heads up to all those folks out there who think Toyota Corollas are such "Great Cars"
Toyota Corolla really should be Total Crap , at least where the interior comes in among other things.
When you go to buy a used Toyota Corolla watch out for:
1) The door handles (interior and exterior) ALWAYS break and are CRAP.
2) The rear view mirror fulcrum breaks so the mirror has a tendency to "bounce" more CRAP
3) The door panels are made of a material similar to peanut brittle and will crack EASILY , more CRAP
4) Interior dome light won't come on (door switch is $20 and fails) more CRAP
5) The molding around the doors is cheap veneer plastic over other cheap plastic , more CRAP
6) The dashboard is cheap plastic and the "color" can easily come out - like if you wanted to clean it with solvent more CRAP.

And that really is only the beginning , in 1998 they came out with a motor that is all - aluminum with a steel cylinder sleeve -more CRAP!
This engine is notorious for "mystery" oil consumption and you MUST use 5W30 SYNTHETIC and have it changed EVERY 3,000 MILES if you want the odometer to even come close to 150,000 without blowing out the connecting rod or main bearings.

You can go here to see the Technical Bulletin written by Toyota themselves!

Don't believe me? Go on the internet and look , or better yet , when you look at a used "TC" ,Toyota Corolla (Total Crap) Car see with your own eyes everything I just said is TRUE

Fantastic little car. The gas mileage is great. I have only one problem. There is a reoccuring noise that sounds like it is coming from the charcoal canister between the rear wheels. This noise happens at any speed and lasts only a second or two. Sounds like a moving part or possibly a vibration. Of course, it won't happen when the mechanic is in the car. Otherwise, a great little car.

Runs great,very dependable, great gas mileage. Interior has issues, door panels warping, headliner separating, and the inside door handle breaking which is a guarantee and not only with this model, but is very inexpensive to order and relatively easy to replace.


first corolla ive owned and i love it
