A mechanic is selling me his manual toyota echo 2003 model in fairly good conditions and moderate price (1600 USD) . I'm a student and can't afford luxury cars. Only issue in my mind is that it has already run 3 hundred and 50 thousand kms. I want to know what is the useful life if Toyota echo engine. IF i purchase it, would i be able to get another hundred and 50 thousand kms from it or should i look for other cars.The overall condition of the car seems to b very good. Any suggestions wud be appreciated
I cannot find "transmission mount" or "motor mount" listed under the repair list on this site to get a cost. Does anyone know what these procedures cost in San Diego, CA or at least in general? Thanks
Does one need to change the brake fluid when replacing pads and turning the rotor or replacing the rotor?
I just had my brake shoes replaced and the mechanic charged me a haz fee of $7. I've never seen a haz fee for parts like this in the past. Is this legit? Thanks!
attempt to get it fixed. Last year, Spider webs were cleaned out (from where I don't recall), and after a week the light reappeared. This year I replaced the purge solenoid valve. Again, after just a few days, the check engine light is back on. I need to get my car inspected and know it won't pass!
172,000 miles. Regular maintenance. Transmission is slipping and has little to no power. Finding it hard to believe that the transmission in a Toyota is already bad. Could it be something else besides the transmission? Only other codes are EVAP system but those shouldn't affect the transmission. Thanks.
Does anyone now where i could get original parts for my 2003 Echo. The original parts on the car have lasted 350,000 miles so far and i would like to get parts from the original manufacturer. If they lasted this long then they will last another 350,000 miles or more. i want to see if i can get to the one million mark on the car, and farther!!!!!!!!!
When I turn the ignition to "on," the fuel gauge pins hard below empty about three times. Then, a second or so later, the speedometer oscillates wildly, settling at exactly 65 MPH.

The car won't crank. The headlamps don't light. A 100A booster charger doesn't change the situation, nor does keeping a jumpstart battery in parallel.

I tried my crappy little OBD II scanner and it gets a Link Failure.

What should I try?
