2001 Toyota Corolla Problems

Cleaning May Correct Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor

The mass air flow sensor on higher mileage cars occasionally needs to be cleaned or replaced if sluggish acceleration is experienced or the Check Engine Light is illuminated with a mass air flow meter sensor fault code stored.

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Window molding disingrating

Noticed one morning when opening my door that the molding at the base of the driver's side window was cracked in half on the front and rear door, allowing rain to get inside the door. This is not covered by the extended warranty, and cost $150/window for the dealer to replace.

Bought my Toyota Corolla 10 years ago and have only had minimal work done...only maintenance type things like brakes, brake pads, one timing belt, cv joints...normal stuff. I am at 209,000 miles and going strong. Just made a 2,300 mile trip. The car has been to Colorado from Georgia twice and countless trips to TX and VA. It has been a champ. I will drive nothing BUT a Toyota!
After a trouble-free 5 years, the oil light blinked a couple times. The next day I checked and it was 1.5 qts low. No problem, put oil in it like usual. 2 days later the engine siezed up? $4,500 for a rebuilt. My first and absolutely last Toyota.
