How do I replace the rear vent window on a 1998 Toyota Corolla sedan (with manual windows)? I have purchased a used vent window with a rubber frame attached to it but need some help getting started (so that I don't break the new glass!)

Thanks, Daniel

I have a damaged front bumper and want to replace. I understand I can get this part online, costs anywhere from about 40 to 90 dollars (no idea about shipping) but what shall I budget in for work and paint?

I actually have a 1985 Toyota Corolla. The engine is over heating and the fans on the radiator are not turning. I thought it might be a belt, but I cannot find one that is not turning. So, I just need to know why the fans may not be turning.

Here's the story....
As I was driving home today, my car suddenly stopped. I thought that maybe it overheated and checked the coolant. When I opened the hood, I noticed the coolant was empty, so I filled it up, waited a few minutes and then proceeded to drive. It stopped again, and I could smell that it was overheating, although there was no steam coming from under the hood. The low fuel light had just turned on, and I eventhough it needed gas, I thought, it generally means I have a few miles to go. A guy suggested that maybe I ran out of gas, so I put gas in it, waited a few minutes and then drove it home (all within a few miles). As I pulled into the parking space, it died again. This time there was steam coming from under the hood.

My questions...
Could running out of gas cause overheating?
Does overheating indicate that I need a new radiator?
How much does is cost to repair/replace a radiator?

On another note... what is the estimated cost to replace two front wheel bearings?

Any information is greatly appreciated.

My 1999 Toyota corolla was once flooded, the water enter the car until it cover the who dashboard, after that I sent it to the repair shop and do the things including the cleaning doing the electrical stuffs and everything, it went well after that except for the ABS, there was no alarm on the ABS indicator on the dash board but everytime I start my car then start to moved it from speed of 0 going to 20, on 20 I heard a roaring sound on the ABS pump ( I assume, also the repair man says it came from the ABS Pump) after that the roaring sound is gone but after I stop and turned my engine off and turned it on again and move it to 0 to 20 km/h i hear the roaring sound again, this sound only took place only the car was turned off and start it again but after that the roaring sound is already gone, can you help me with this thanks

How do you replace a main fuse

OK I decided to change my brake pads and rotors myself for the first time; here are my issues: I relieved the pressure from the brake line and removed the caliper with no issue and changed the pads and installed the new rotor. I put everything back together and started a test drive. NO BRAKES! I went back to releive the brake fluid pressure and drained until clear fluid was present on the passenger side ans all good, on the driver side the relief nipple/valve broke on the caliper. So I loosened the hose on the caliper and bled until clear fluid was present. I left the tires off with the car on stands and started the engine and slowly placved the car into drive with my foot on the brake petal and... NO BRAKES! What did I do wrong or forget?
