Subassy bent in the rear

Just bought a battery 4 months ago for corolla. Now I am selling. Want to swap battery from the jeep, which needs to be replaced soon, to the corolla, and use the newer corolla battery in my jeep. Just wondering if this is possible?

The don't started

will you bend the valves on a 1997 Toyota corolla 2.2 engine if the timing belt goes, it has 99,000 miles with no timimg belt replacement

My driver's seatbelt won't buckle and I've been having to use the passenger buckle. I've tried sticking a butter knife into the buckle to pull out any debris, but no luck.

I've purchased a buckle from ebay, but I have no idea where to start on replacing it. Do I have to take the seat out? Is there a way to do this with minimal work (I am car-stupid)?

I replace alternator but forgotting disconnected the battery accidently one cable touched the body of the alternator, a big spark came, now I only can start the engine and that was it nothing else worked I did check all the fuses every looked ok.
Help Please
Thanks

I want to use a after market ignition coil, will it work

This wasn't happening until I had engine coils replaced and a tuneup.

Began after driving to Door County from Chicago, about 4 hours.

Change from a use to a new one

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.
