2007 Toyota Corolla Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2007 Toyota Corolla

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.

There are occasional reports of daytime running light problems.

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.

When deployed due to a crash, the passenger side air bag can deploy abnormally, or with excessive force. The inflator may come apart, causing debris and fragments to strike and injure occupants. The dealership will replace the passenger air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Toyota is recalling certain 2005-2008 Corolla and Matrix models because a crack may develop on a circuit board inside the engine control module (ECM). Consequences associated with this defect include: illumination of the Check Engine Light and harsh transmission shifting. The engine may not start or it could stall while driving, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the ECM and replace as necessary.

Southeast Toyota is recalling 2005–2011 models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on tire selection and rims. Affected models were sold without the proper load-carrying capacity modification labels, which may cause the driver to overload the vehicle, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will mail the correct labels to the customer or install the label free of charge.
