squeaking noise on the passenger side of the engine. what could it be?

My car seems to misfire when i first pull off and when i go up hills it slows down as if i have no power. The check engine light has not come on. I have a stick shift.

My break light have been on for nearly 2 months now what is wrong?

I can feel the heat but the fan has totally quit at any speed. Previously it would cut out but mostly ran. could this be the resistor or the heater blower fan?

I take my car in for service on a regular basis and knew that I would soon need rear brake pads. Then I suddenly lost all braking ability and was told I needed remanufactured brake vacuum booster & a new brake master cylinder assy combo at a cost of $515. and labor at $318. along with new rear drum brake shoes $50., rear drum brake hardware fit, $23.; new rear brake wheel cylinders $24 with labor cost of $159; plus stallation/resurface drums/lube all rear drum brake hardware/adjust parking brake (1.5 hrs) complete brake fluid flush & fill @ $130.

NEED TO CONSTANTLY JUMP THE CAR. THE PROBLEM STARTED A WEEK AGO. if the car remains idle for about 8 hours or more it won't start. once it was jumped it will be running ok without any problem at all.

I pulled into a one-car garage and misjudged the distance on the sides. As a result my passenger's side mirror was ripped off. Since there is a solid rubber piece which holds the mirror to the car and needs to be replaced, I am wondering what it would cost to repair this (approx.) ?

I only hear the sound when breaking. I do not hear it while driving. So could this still be the wheel bearings?

Out of no where I suddenly had a dead battery. I thought it was just the battery's time to go, so I bought a new one. Everything was fine for about 48 hours, then I go to start up my car the next evening and nothing...I thought there was some sort of short that was draining my battery over night, so I got a jump start from my friend and drove the car around for about 30 minutes hoping to charge the battery a bit and see how long the charge will last. I got home turned the car off, and just out of curiosity checked to see if I could start it again, and nothing happened. Any thoughts?

so I just bought this 1995 toyota corolla and while in idle it clicks over and over again without stop. My friend who has a toyota corolla too says its some kind of engine thing something rubbing against something in the engine? Any suggestions? If it is an expensive problem i'm going to go see this guy that sold me this....


My mechanic diagnosed a bad exhaust valve in the #3 cylinder of my 99' corolla. The vehicle has 230,000 miles. Will a head job be a safe fix? Can I continue to drive as is while saving for repairs?

I went to the store and was trying to reverse my car into the parking space when it wouldn't move i thought i was in a dip or something but it happened again in a different parking lot and now every single time i try to reverse it wont unless i force it. What can be the problem?

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.

my 96 toyota runs fine during inital start up but after 20 minutes or when engine is fully warm starts hesitating and skiping between 30 45 mph.took to my mechanic bot no errror code came up .any help. thank you.

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?

brake fluid has been leaking - put it in and its okay for a couple of months this time brakes went to the floor no warning with brake light

What part of the engine that cause P0171 System too Lean (bank 1) error?

Where in the engine i can find this sensor?

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?

Thank you!

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 need to change the clutch in my 92' corolla and need to find instructions on how to do so
