Change from a use to a new one

What is the torque for the cylinder head

First time

the mechanic already replaced valve cover gasket and timing tensioner cover. continues to leak.

I have an '05 Toyota Corolla with around 120k miles on it. I have noticed that while driving on the highway and I exit, once I hit the speed of about 25-30 mph, my car begins to shake and makes noises and my rpms drop to around 500, making it seem like my engine will stall. It seems as though it is not downshifting properly and staying in 3rd gear as I slow down. It only happens when I surpass 40-50 mph.

Also at times after this occurs, if Im in traffic and slow down from a high rate of speed (I drive 70-75 on my daily commute) the acceleration suffers too and will take some time to accelerate, again as if it is in a higher gear (rpm will hover around 800-1k) and slowly accelerate until it reaches almost 3k rpm before it changes gear.

Both these issues/problems have caused the check engine light to come on and off. When I took it to my mechanic to check the codes, it comes back as an error message with no codes. (he believes the issue is computer related)

Is this just a solenoid issue or is it something bigger, or really just as simple as a computer problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you

I was recently told by a mechanic that I need to replace the power steering with fluid that has "stop-leak" because of some trouble I was having with my vehicle. My manual says to only use Dexron-II Automatic Transmission Fluid, but as I understand it Dexron-II and Dexron-III are no longer manufactured. The only power steering fluid I can find with stop-leak is Prestone, but should I use power steering fluid or brand transmission fluid for my power steering?

I had a leak in my 96 Toyota corrola, couldn't afford repair right away so I just continued to drive it and kept my eye on temp and added liquid copper to stop leak, was driving on freeway when it stalled suddenly now it won't start even though I waited until the next day to try and start but it won't start what do I look for to figure out why it won't start

Went it. Drive in. Airbags. Stay. On. Alltime

Car is slow to accelerate, and violent vibrating when in drive and reverse. When in neutral and park is not as bad. Also has a loud rumbling sound.

I've received conflicting information regarding this

was told some kind of senor

12/16 and 01/23/2017 mostly in afternoon while at work and car has set for hours.

i turn the key.....all lights are fine and bright but engine wont crank at all.....thanks

Have trouble starting car on occasion especially when it is hot and been driven for some time then stopped and go to restart it

after changing about four I plugged in my pocket scan to see if I had any bad reading but the screen was blank I tried it on my other car and it worked fine could this b a fuse?

The car has a hard starting problems, within 15-20 minutes after parking/driving.

Corolla S with about 250K miles. Prior, A/C and heater were intermittently working and blowing with cool air (A/C) intermittently with A/C light on and, now, not at all with no power or A/C light turning on.

Thus far, we have:
1) Checked the blower motor and had replaced and worked intermittently in conjunction with being A/C light on or off going off on on by itself. Blower motor works with power out of car, but not in car.
2) Blower Motor Resistor has been changed.
3) Several fuses have been checked including magnetic clutch relay.
4) In dash heater A/C controller has been changed.
5) No diagnostic codes are showing up.

Acts like it is an electrical problem, so our next guess is there must be a broken or loose wire somewhere, but do not see any burned or melted wiring.

Is there something that is common that goes out or have anymore ideas why A/C or Heater might not work? Thanks in advance.

changed o2 sensors @ codes keep coming up with p0606 . do i reset computer & how.tanks

This has never happened before. I just parked the car for more than a week and when i tried to start the engine it could not start. The battery was okay but because i kept on trying to start it the battery went flat eventually. I tried to jump start it still it could not start. What could be the problem? kindly assist?

My 98 corolla key wont turn the ignition to start the car.

Replaced altenator and battery no running lights or blinkers. Checking the fuses both in the engine compartment and driver side interior... could it be the altenator itself or am i missing a connection?

New battery starts other car easily 99'. Ignition tumbler i think its called is pretty bad original key no longer works but the spare i made does. Used original key this time accidentally and worked once drove it and now this. Not sure if related. No lights only the key illumination, door chime and open door dash light. Think i had a bad alternator just before also replaced with junk yard one, maybe killed 1st battery and what else? Lol

It's winter and I find cold outside air coming in through the top of the lower glove box. What is that all about? How do I stop it?

Is like the gear moves at gear 3 at first start,

i was told it washes the engine

and if it is how much to replace

changing my clutch, now need to know how to remove the gearbox

The Driver Side Front Wheel gets hotter than all the rest wheel after running some few kilometers

--Whenever the weather is below 35/40 degrees F, the speedometer stops working and there is a rattling sound.
--Mechanic said only fix was to find a "low mileage" same make/model/ year "instrument cluster" to replace what is in the car now. Difficult to find.
--Any alternative fixes? What is it about the cold that causes the speedometer not to work? Car has 199K miles, has manual transmission, and is well maintained.

Distributor .rode one day back doing the same it turn over
