My Corolla has a miss in number 4 cyl. I have replaced the spark plugs, the injectors and coils for all 4 cylinders. I have fire at the #4 spark plug. I can remove the plug wires one at a time and only #4 does not change the way the engine runs. I believe it could be a fuel issue to the #4 injector but don"t know how to test this.

I just bought a used Corolla. The rear spoiler has a bolt holding it in place on either end. They don't seem to be enough to keep it from wavering. It appears each end requires some type of rubber spacer or adhesive to add stability. Any ideas?

how to change third brake light

Just to keep the records straight I been doing cars, trucks, planes, boats, and trucks for 45 + yrs....thank you....My son has my car in Florida I am in New York, I bought it used its a 02 corolla, 100,000K on it runs fantastic, but he says on the interstate at high speeds he notices an abrupt sort of shutter in the trans., I am not there so its a long distance sort of diagnosis, I immediately thought of the torque converter lockup, I asked him to steady cruise at about 55-60 mph and genttly tap the brake pedal, which in turn will disengaging the lockup, and tell me what it feels like but he hasn't got the results back to me as he is very busy at work, he says it shutters hard on acceleration at higher speeds(like 75-80mph) which is the speed to travel on the I-95 down there....any thoughts on this???
I know the Corrollas have bad standard trans but the 4 cyl coupled with the automatics should???be ok???
Wonder if there is a recall on it or something???
Perhaps a shift solenoid defective or an adjustment ....but only on high end speed.
Thanks for your help guys!!!

The car started going dead at idle. I cleaned and checked the EGR and the intake mainifold which was clogged with carbon. Now the car will not start. When it cranks over it will randomly fire but not start. I have checked for fuel vapor and spark. Wires, plugs, dist. cap, rotor button, and fuel filter are all new. I did a visual check on the timing by rotating the engine to the no.1 position in the distributor and saw that the no.1 piston was up and valves were closed. What else can I do?

The article on "Tune-Up: What Exactly Is It?" seems to suggest that a tune up does not exist and that it is the same as what is done during scheduled maintance visits.

Page toyota in detroit michigan said I needed a tune up as well as 60,000 mile scheduled maintance. I really don't know anything about a car so I am wondering what is true.

Are they 2 different things?

what is the gap for hte spark plugs

Had 4 new tires put on and when I picked car up, the daytime lights were on. When I withdrew the keys from ignition, these headlights came ON. I jiggled keys and lights shut off. Came back to the car around 2 hours later and parking lights had come back on. I was able to get lights to go off, but again 2 hours later, came to check on car and the lights were back ON. Got into car to move it for battery charging accessability. Went to check car the next morning and the lights had been on and had completely drained the battery. Mechanic has had car for a week and cannot find the problem. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Would appreciate ANY help you could give.

the driver power window stopped working without notice. Today I opened it to take a ticket from the machine and was unable to get window closed. I heard no noise at all. The other windows are still working.

I hear a clicking when I drive. It does not happen every time but more often lately.
