Toyota Corolla Problems

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Engine Won't Crank Due To Starter

If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

I never had any of the "recalls" repaired. I bought it with 44K on it from a private owner who took care of it. Now it has 130K. I've only replaced brakes once. (It's an automatic but I downshift a lot before braking) Repla...
