I have 1992 Toyota Corolla and it will not start unless I apply the gas pedal. As soon as I release the gas pedal it stalls out. I was hoping that adding some heet to the fuel tank, any water that may have built up would evaporate. But, it seemed to be no help. Where should I start to try and find out what's wrong. Thanks.

The 'brake' light is on two days ago. We had the mechanic check the car and found both the front and rear brakes need to be replaced, costing 345 and 117 separately. We had finacial issues lately. Can we only replace the rear brakes? will that keep us safe and turn off the 'brake' light?
My corolla will turn over but start. I havent been able to notice a pattern of what would make it happen. It has 240th miles on it but when it starts it runs and sounds great. It happens maybe 3-5 times a week and sometimes I can wait a few hours and it may or may not start up. Does anyone know what could be causing this? is it something someone who knows little about cars could fix with good instructions?

I brought my 2003 Toyota Corolla to the dealer for its schedule 105000 miles service. I always bring my car for all its regular services to the same place. All was "fine" with my car, as they described. The next morning I start driving my car, and it fails, brought it back to Toyota, and they told me: "It was the transmission, something got loose inside and damage it beyond repair, it was not their fault, it just "happened", my options are either install a new transmission, or get a new car". My questions:
1. Is it normal for a manual car with regular service to get the transmission suddenly failed, right after regular service?
2. Is it worth it to repair it? or get a new car?
1990 corolla recently started stalling when shifting. If you shift down one gear and dump the clutch it will usually restart but then will stall again. Also it's virtually impossible to use reverse, as soon as the clutch is let out and gas is applied it will stall or start bucking. Car seems to run fine at an idle. any thoughts would be helpful as i need the car asap.
My dashboard lights went off last week. How easy/difficult is it to replace them? What would the mechanic charge?

I just cheaply bought a 1995 Toyota Corolla 1.8 with 170,000 miles super clean, was told car was parked for awhile. Problem is most of the time after being parked for 2 or 3 hrs , vehicle does not start at times. Checked out cylinder compression when dont start and it had none, after cranking for 1 or 2 minutes car starts missing and making lifter noise, then after about 3 to 5 minutes clears up and runs PERFECT as long as I don't let it sit 2 to 3 hrs again. Engine has no blowby and dont smoke. Funny thing is that sometimes I can shut it off leave it overnight and, not often, will start right up. No other vehicle history is known to me. Also has an EGR Valve code ,where do I start
How often should engine and transmission be flushed and refilled?
After turning the car off and locking, the lights wil turn on all by themselves in the middle of the night. After taking the relay out the went off. swapped the relays and still have the same problem.I can shut them off by pushing the light control forward(Turning on high beam) after car is off. Any help would be appreciated
