1999 Toyota Corolla Problems

Vehicle Won't Crank Due To Starter

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.

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

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.

1999 Toyota Corolla Reviews

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.
GOOD CAR RUNS GREAT AND GOOD GAS MILAGE
