I cannot find the battery in any local stores and have been told I have to go to a dealership exclusively to get it replaced along with the connectors. Is my only option a dealership? Why are they batteries so special or unique?

I have maintained it well and just had to replace the catalytic converter and some pipes. Is it worth investing or should I be thinnig about replacing it?

I have a 2000 Toyota Echo with around 113,000 miles on it.The car has never had a transmission flush or transmission fluid change. I checked the transmission fluid and it was bright red. I read somewhere that low mileage cars should have transmission flushes but high mileage cars should only have the transmission fluid drained and refilled. Is my car high mileage or low mileage? Should I have a transmission flush or just have the transmission fluid drained and refilled? Or nothing at all? How often should the transmission be flushed or drained on a 2000 toyota echo? When the transmission is drained or flushed is it routine for a filter to be changed to? Is there a such thing as a transmission filter?
Thank You,

battery. Found one (1) 15A fuse blown and replaced it, but no wiper, car starts but I can't put it gear. Other accessories are not working. What would cause this?

Replaced fuel pump. Still won't start. Looking at fuse box for relay switch but owners manual does not list that fuse. I'd like to know where I can get a fuse box schematic. Not sure this is the problem. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

every time fuel is added to gas tank no matter what fueling station is used it takes a long time to fill gas tank as the nozzle shuts off after every 1/2 gallon or so

PS mine doesn't have the star wheel adjustment. It has a different kind of adjustment system. Any information would be great thanks.

I was told years ago it was going so I know that's the problem--plus had a mechanic listen to the noise.

i know there are two screws with each headlight in Toyota Echo/Yaris to adjust the direction of headlight beam and its focus area in front of the vehicle, but what i exactly want to know is that which of them will help me to tilt the beam across x-axis and in which direction.

additionally i have adjusted the screw situated nearer to radiator to adjust the height of the beam i.e. movement over y-axis.

I have an automatic Transmission Echo.I felt a soft downshift as if driving a standard then 30 seconds later the car cut off and I had no power to drive. All electrical worked. I waited 5 minutes then it started again and was able to drive.
Battery was changed out. I picked up the vehicle from the dealership stopped at a traffic light and the car cut off again!! Waited for 5 minutes, it started then I drove off again. WHAT is Wrong with my Echo

is timing belt the common problem for that model

My catalytic convertor is fine. The cost of a direct fit convertor (which I have presently) is about twice the price of the convertor by itself. I was wondering if it's possible to get my hands on the pipe between the convertor and the manifold and weld it to the convertor that I have now.

Looking for a cheap fix the car will soon have 400 000km not sure investing long term is a solution

How much should it cost to replace an oil pump for my 2002 Echo? Most places estimate about $600 but the dealer and another place estimate about $1100. Why such a discrepancy in pricing?
