Question Asked: Front brake pads
January 13, 2013, 11:08 AM
I just changed front brake pads with OEM. After being installed I was surprised coz the color of the brake pads is GREEN. Is it true OEM brake pads corolla 2011 is green color? I worry if they gave me aftermarket brake pads instead.
So I called the TOYOTA dealer, and they told me that there are 2 types OEM brake pads, Japanese & American. Is that true? Are they the same?
Thank you so much & I really apreciate your answer.

I just went TOYOTA dealer doing 5000 miles maintanance. Toyota tech didnt change engine oil. When I asked they said that corolla 11 using special syntetic oil, so corolla need change engine oil every 10000. And when I checked manual book of TOYOTA, it's true. Is it OK to change engine oil with syntetic oil every 10000 miles for corolla 11.
Thank you so much

Question Answered: oil drain plug gasket

THx patrick. Does most mechanic know that he needs to change drain plug gasket as well? Or do I need to tell him? So far, I see most mechanic always change engine oil and filter, but I didnt pay attention w/ drain plug gasket.
