problem just started suddenly. replaced rear tires but did not get balance or rotation approximately one month prior.
also replaced gas tank three months prior. rear struts are bad and about one week ago started to idle rough. also a chirping sound when idling

will crank 10 minute

Won't start trs to but wont

everything else works fine. brake light work, runs smooth transition smooth

Why does it seem like I need power steering fluid

Issue improves after car is warm but rapid increase in rpms due to accelerator press causes initial stumble. Otherwise runs smooth at idle and higher RPMS. Work done already:

- replaced distributor cap, rotor, plugs, and wires.

- cleaned carbeurator and air cleaned hoses and jets

- replaced fuel filter

It has happened 4 times in the last 2 months. On a 1994 Toyota Corolla. Car dies while driving then has problems turning over until it rests for a few minutes, then only runs a fe seconds.

Is it something serious or a tune up? It's been happening for a week. How hard is it to remove the trans and take it to a shop? I'm trying to keep the cost down.

The problem is i hear a whissing sound from the front passenger side of the car. the sound is loudest at between 60 to 70 km either while im accelerating or decelerating. what could be the problem cos i have change my wheel bearings after consulting a mechanic but the sound is still there. i need help. thank you

Engine knock when in idle quiets down when I give it gas.

A mechanic told me I should change my timing chain. I thought I don't need to do this because it's a chain. Please advise

Call when he hit 34000 miles on it acts like it's not getting any fuel turning over battery good starter good wants to start but no start no codes

2011 Toyota Corolla LE, 70k miles. The struts are new. The repair shop told me the pare is a generic part with NO brand name. Charged me $480 to install (2) front struts and alignment. Is that reasonable?

Engine cranks but wont start after installing a starter

transmission went into limp mode. after a few miles went back to normal operation. did this several times. jhad mechanic check with computer & replaced all sensors that were reading bad.changed trans filter & fluid. fluid was black.on test drive operated normal then back to limp mode.now won't change gears but goes into reverse & drive as it should. like the car but don't want to spend more than it is worth. already spent over 500$ on parts. really want to fix it but i have had some bad experiences with tranny rebuilds on other cars i have had done in this area. even some of the so called best as advertised with warranty. need help!!

Subassy bent in the rear

Just bought a battery 4 months ago for corolla. Now I am selling. Want to swap battery from the jeep, which needs to be replaced soon, to the corolla, and use the newer corolla battery in my jeep. Just wondering if this is possible?

The don't started

will you bend the valves on a 1997 Toyota corolla 2.2 engine if the timing belt goes, it has 99,000 miles with no timimg belt replacement

My driver's seatbelt won't buckle and I've been having to use the passenger buckle. I've tried sticking a butter knife into the buckle to pull out any debris, but no luck.

I've purchased a buckle from ebay, but I have no idea where to start on replacing it. Do I have to take the seat out? Is there a way to do this with minimal work (I am car-stupid)?

I replace alternator but forgotting disconnected the battery accidently one cable touched the body of the alternator, a big spark came, now I only can start the engine and that was it nothing else worked I did check all the fuses every looked ok.
Help Please
Thanks

I want to use a after market ignition coil, will it work

This wasn't happening until I had engine coils replaced and a tuneup.

Began after driving to Door County from Chicago, about 4 hours.

Change from a use to a new one

First time

the mechanic already replaced valve cover gasket and timing tensioner cover. continues to leak.

I have an '05 Toyota Corolla with around 120k miles on it. I have noticed that while driving on the highway and I exit, once I hit the speed of about 25-30 mph, my car begins to shake and makes noises and my rpms drop to around 500, making it seem like my engine will stall. It seems as though it is not downshifting properly and staying in 3rd gear as I slow down. It only happens when I surpass 40-50 mph.

Also at times after this occurs, if Im in traffic and slow down from a high rate of speed (I drive 70-75 on my daily commute) the acceleration suffers too and will take some time to accelerate, again as if it is in a higher gear (rpm will hover around 800-1k) and slowly accelerate until it reaches almost 3k rpm before it changes gear.

Both these issues/problems have caused the check engine light to come on and off. When I took it to my mechanic to check the codes, it comes back as an error message with no codes. (he believes the issue is computer related)

Is this just a solenoid issue or is it something bigger, or really just as simple as a computer problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you

I was recently told by a mechanic that I need to replace the power steering with fluid that has "stop-leak" because of some trouble I was having with my vehicle. My manual says to only use Dexron-II Automatic Transmission Fluid, but as I understand it Dexron-II and Dexron-III are no longer manufactured. The only power steering fluid I can find with stop-leak is Prestone, but should I use power steering fluid or brand transmission fluid for my power steering?
