Toyota Corolla Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Toyota Corolla

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.

The mass air flow sensor on higher mileage cars occasionally needs to be cleaned or replaced if sluggish acceleration is experienced or the Check Engine Light is illuminated with a mass air flow meter sensor fault code stored.

There are occasional reports of daytime running light problems.

They said they'd know more next time I come in. I had the oil checked today (before an four-hour round trip), and the oil level was fine. I'm wondering what questions I should ask when I go in again.

Changed all four coil packs and spark plugs

When deployed due to a crash, the passenger side air bag can deploy abnormally, or with excessive force. The inflator may come apart, causing debris and fragments to strike and injure occupants. The dealership will replace the passenger air bag assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.
