2005 Toyota Corolla QuestionsRefine by vehicle
There is a problem getting the right part. Why should that be so hard?
The light switch inside the car does nothing when you put them on.
Light lit about 5 days ago. 2 days after replacing cap light still on. Where to look for leak next?
What is the 90,000 mile maintenance protocol?
60,000 miles on the car

My used 2005 Toyota Corolla came with mutagi racing wheels 18". I hate the ride and want to go back with OEM wheels. I found some on Craigslist and want to buy but dont know it they will fit. Thanks
it said something about switching valve closed bank 1. the other is second air flow sensor high input bank 1. what should I do? i have a 2005 corolla xrs
I need picture this sensor and especially plug.
I had some new tires put on today and asked them to check the brakes. They said the break pads were fine but that the front rotors were rusted. They said about $300 to fix the front rotors and put on new pads. Is this a real problem? What will happen if this doesn't get fixed right away? Is this a reasonable price? I am short on $ and can't pay for repairs that are not really necessary. The brakes do squeak a bit but they work fine.
(sorry for the long post, but I am trying to be thorough with my description)
This is my wife's car, so I normally don't drive it much. Car has 110000 miles on it. Does not have ABS.
Original symptom reported by my wife (I did not experience it myself): while waiting in the long line to drop my daughter at school, the brake pedal would slowly go to the floor when sitting and creeping at idle with the automatic transmission in drive. When I checked the brake fluid reservoir, it was not noticeably low. It was well above the min mark. I think it was at or close to the max mark.
There were no signs of leakage. I figured this had to be a worn master cylinder, so I replaced the master cylinder and bled the system at all four wheels (in order of decreasing brake line length) using a vacuum bleeder system. Used DOT 3 fluid. During a test drive it performed normally.
Yesterday we were 2 hours into a four hour drive and the brake light illuminated on the instrument panel. I opened the hood and discovered the fluid in the reservoir was to the min mark. I refilled the reservoir and we continued, with me paying close attention to brake feel. Up to this point I had not noticed anything unusual. From this point on the brakes performed okay but the pedal did seem slightly soft. At the end of the drive, the fluid level was again low -- about half way between min and max. Then my wife also reported that after I had replaced the master cylinder, the sinking pedal symptom had happened twice in about 5 weeks.
I am now trying to identify the leak in my garage. I see no evidence at all of a fluid leak. I have the car up on jack stands and the wheels off. I removed the rear drums -- no sign of leakage at the slave cylinders. No sign of leakage at the front slave cylinders, master cylinder or lines. With the engine running, I can push the brake pedal very hard with both feet and hold it, and I don't feel any sinking. I've pressed the pedal hard and easy many times, held it for a minute or so multiple times. The pedal might sink just a little but it is pretty hard to tell and it feels more like my imagination than anything real. In all my pedal pushing over the course of 30 minutes or so, the fluid reservoir level did drop some (about midway between min and max). That's not a huge amount of fluid but it is enough that I would have thought I'd definitely see it leaking somewhere.
Where could the fluid be going? Obviously I need to figure this out and repair it before I put the car on the road again. I'll take it to a shop if I can't figure it out but I'd prefer to do the work myself.
I checked the OBD2 codes and it had none.I sprayed throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and it ran for a minute and cut back off.So its not getting fuel,Please help.
All thr vents on the right side (def.,middle and lower)blow cold air with the heat on. Any ideas why?
Two different Toyota's dealership told me different things about transmission fluid. The first one said I need to change it eveery 60k km, while the second one said that according to manufacturer instructins I should never change it. The official importer in Israel said it is recommended to change this fluid every 72 months, and now it's time for changing. He also said it is under my consideration.
I'm confused. what shall I do?
