My 2005 toyota corolla sport w/auto trans & 1ZZFE engine wouldn't start after fillup at gas station. With system depressurized there is no power to the fuel pump connector with ignition on, but it does get power & pumps in the start position. Tank is full but gauge reads empty. After cranking & failing to start, when the key is released(ign. on)there is a very quiet high pitched buzz or hum coming from the throttle body. Might be a normal sound but never heard because the engine would be running


If there's a hum on the throttle body, the throtle position sensor is at fault. ... 2005 Toyota Corolla

My 95 toyota corolla is having intermittent problems where the battery is seemingly losing power, then coming back to life. My assumption is that it is somehow related to the alternator, however the alternator tests out ok. I get a loud squealing sound when I start the engine which goes away after revving the engine. The belts are tight and the last time this happened there was a lot of smoke and the smell of burning coming from the back of the engine.


You should get the battery tested. Alot of them fail this time of yesr. Once you determine the battery and have the alternator tested then you beging to daignose deeper. Most people are not aware that even tho an alternator is charging it can have ... 1995 Toyota Corolla

I have 1993 Toyota corolla 2e engine. after an engine overhaul the power drops significantly. Takeoff is poor and acceleration only develops after some time. It wont also accelerate after 80Km/hr. timing position is perfect and all the other parts are ok also. We have also changed a new carburetor and a new clutch but the problem still persist. Would you please advise me how can it be repaired? Thank you and Merry X-mass Dereje from Ethiopia

I replaced the inside driver's door handle on my 1998 Toyota Corolla last year. Two weeks ago, the exterior door physically broke (but the inside door still worked fine). Today NEITHER door works. It also just got very cold. Not sure if it was frozen but the other doors work. Also, when the engine starts it makes a low squeaking noise for at least the first 15 minutes. A random stranger walked by when I was getting out of it one day and said it sounded like it was low on power steering flu

I have a 1987 toyota corolla with a carburater system. when I start the car the engine sputters and almost wants to die. The car barely wants to run with loss of power, sounding like its only running on 3 cylinders. And when I step on the gas to accelerate it sputters ,jerks, and the car almost stalls. Then within 10,15,20 minutes, it suddenly kicks in and the motor runs great with no problem at all. I'm guessing the choke needs to be adjusted. Can you help me on this? thanks
