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

The airbag warning that I think is associated with a warning when a child is in the front passenger seat, is always on. The seat isn't buckled and nothing is in the front seat. I checked the wires underneath the seat and they seem OK. Any easy fixes?

I am getting confused because different people keep referring to these two parts as interchangeable and keep giving me different recommendations. I just had the drive belt replaced due to a loud squeaking noise and lots of dry rot, this is the belt that is attached to the engine and drives the alternator, pumps, etc. Then I hear mention of a "timing belt" that is connected to the camshaft and drives the pistons. What's the correct terminology? How do I inspect the timing belt for myself? What are indications that it needs to be replaced? The car has 123,000 miles and is running great besides the need for a new catalytic converter.

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla LE with 137,000 miles and noticed that when the engine is cold, the RPM Guage eratically flucuates between 2 and 7. There is no reving-up of the engine, so it appears to be just the guage malfunctioning. What can cause this and can it be a DIY Repair?
