    Transmission Options

    I have an 09 corolla le, currently with the 2zrfe engine and u341e transaxle. I have been researching converting it to a manual, but am unable to find some information thus far. What model transaxle would I swap in? The c59? If I later decided to do an enine swap to the 2azfe engine (which was offered in the 09-10 corolla xrs), would the transaxle still work or would I have to get a different one? Also, is the crossmember forcthe auto and manual transaxles?

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System (Tpms)

    does anyone knows where the TPMS module located in a 2015 Corolla?

  6. I agree. The ride and handling are the big pluses in my opinion. Looking forward to the new four-cylinders too.

    Any Geo Prizm Boards?

    Both of our Corollas (2003 CE and 2006 S) were made by NUMMI in Bay Area, CA. They also made Pontiac Vibes and Toyota Matrix there. Now, they make Tesla's (not called NUMMI anymore).

    Any Geo Prizm Boards?

    Yup — Prizm (and FWD Nova) were Corollas with Japanese engine tuning and GM radios. Some would say they were actually the better versions. AFAIK they were all made in NUMMI (California) while Corollas in the US could also be made in Canada.

    Any Geo Prizm Boards?

    "Prizm power"'s been in my vocabulary, too. Like this spring, when going uphill in one and the engine made that noise little engines make when you step on it.

    96 Geo Prizm

    My family had a '93 Geo Prizm with a 1.8 L engine when I was a kid and that took the premium gas.

    Geo Idle

    You may have seen my mentioning Miss Bluebell, the car I learned to drive on. When it was chilly, at least when she got old, she had higher idle.

    Rough shift issue in 2010 Corolla S

    I can endorse that. I've had a couple of adaptive transmission cars, but I also used to borrow cars a lot, and it would take around four days for the previous owner's driving habits to wear off! It'd be nice if they let you have two drivers and a reset button Not sure about the 2010 Corolla but some cars have a specific fuse to pull that resets the computer specifically.
  15. I have stories on monthly US sales and quarterly profits, but I'd like some feedback before writing them, because if nobody cares whether I post them, I probably shouldn't post them.

    RAV issue?

    I was pretty convinced it was the pads slapping around....does sound like that.....and it might be....hope it is. But tonight I noticed it did it when slowing down even though I had yet to touch the brakes. Some times I hear it more than a few times....other days not much at all. The dealer is saying its the pads. I really cant say for sure if it happened when the AWD fluid changes took place. For sure it sounds more like a clicking sound....like you said the pawl sound is close to it most times....or pads sliding around. I told a Toy rep I wish they didnt have the tranny oil change like it is. As if someone brings it to the quickie lube places and they do their up-sell....they might think a drain and fill is all it needs when in fact its a lot more complex. I'm not sure they would know to not offer to do these type of trannies. As I told Toy the issue is if the previous owners did use a Quickie lube....the damage might not show up for a few more years. I had most of the records and they took it to a dealership but there is a section of miles where I have no info. I really like it (other than does Toy use 4ft tall testers for the pedal/seat layout?!!!) ...I was very impressed how it went in a massive blizzard I had to drive in....and as impressed with the gas mileage I get with it. So I want to keep it for 200K+ miles like we are doing with our 2005 Rolla.
  17. Nice, pretty sharp - looks a lot more aggressive than the outgoing 4th gen. Rav4. Will have to check those out when they come out to the showrooms. Pretty happy with our 2016 Rav4 - that had a number of improvements compared to the previous model years (2013-2015). This looks to blow the 2016-2018 model years out of the water.
  18. There are a number of posts that go into detail on those oil consumption issues - do a search on the forums and see if that will answer your questions. As for oil consumption - any car can have oil consumption, much of that depends on maintenance history and driving conditions that the car sees. Concerning the 1ZZ-FE - a small number of them have seen some serious oil consumption issues. Some owners have had better luck than others. The key is checking the oil level regularly and often. Can't assume that the oil level will not go down over time. At the very minimum, check the level every time you fill up or once a week, whichever is less. The dipstick replacement you are referring to was only the later 1ZZ-FE models. That effectively increased the oil capacity by ~0.5 liter, by moving the "full" mark on the dipstick.
  19. Gentlemen: I am a new member and live in Jeddah. I am wondering if I should buy a corolla with 1zz-fe. Lately I read that a new dipstick measure is used to resolve the issue of oil consumption. Comments and suggestions will be appreciate

    RAV issue?

    My wife's 2016 RAV4 makes this clunk sound/feel only moving into reverse, none of the forward gears - even what it was brand new. This 6-speed transaxle is super sensitive, especially if you park on any sort of grade, short of being perfectly level. Much worse when you go from park to reverse, feels like something is hung up in the transaxle. Trick we found was to make sure to set the parking brake, let the car settle, then shift it into park - that took any load off the parking pawl. The next day, when reversing, still has that clunk - but greatly reduced. Normally, I'd just do a drain and refill just to see what the fluid is doing - but with the required SST to get it refilled, too much of a pain to do myself.

    Rough shift issue in 2010 Corolla S

    This generation has a learning transaxle logic, so if you only occasionally run it WOT, the reaction will be relatively slow. Resetting the PCM will temporarily wipe those settings, that's why it ran differently. If the fluid is good, pressures inside the valvebody and fluid lines are fine, nothing seemed amiss in the transaxle pan (excessive metal or material shavings) - then likely this is the PCM picking shift strategy based on driving patterns. Only thing I can think of is to give it a healthy romp on the highways every once and a while, change up the driving style. See if that will help out. A 2010 with 153K miles is really nothing to this car - as long as you stay ontop of the factory recommended service. Resetting the PCM won't hurt, but will wipe previously stored settings (shift points, air fuel timing, etc.) - if you disconnect the battery to do this, instead of through a scantool - then you will also reset your radio presets (may run into the radio anti-theft, depending on the receiver model you have).

    Need Help, Trunk Won't Open!

    When you tried the lock from the outside of the trunk, do you feel the resistance of the lock? Or does it just turn easily. Same with the remote release inside the car (assuming this is the level type mechanical release) - any resistance or does it lift up very easily. If there is no resistance - then that could mean the control cable that runs to the lock could have fell off or otherwise got detached. If your car has fold down rear seats, try getting into the truck that way and pull the emergency release inside truck. If no fold down seats, you may still get access by removed the rear seat cushion (I've down this with my 2002 Corolla S). In any case - you have to get access to lock to see what is going on. Sometimes you can get lucky and banging on the rear trunk can jiggle something into place - but from experience, you'll more likely dent the trunk in the process with little chance to rattle something into place. Good Luck

    Rough shift issue in 2010 Corolla S

    Hello! Thank you for the reply. I'll give it a try! I did remove the throttle body and cleaned all the connections - I believe the TPS is built into the throttle body. However, I have not cleaned the speed sensor. I'll have to look up where that is and clean the connections. This started prior to any fluid changes. I performed a series of drain and fills after I first noticed the problem and it continued. It's probably due for another round of drain and fills, but I don't think it will have much effect. Thank you again for your help.
  26. Thanks for the follow-up.

    If clearing the computer fixes it it probably is indeed a sensor of some sort. I would think a TPS and speed sensors are most likely, but if the speed sensor was wrong, you might see speedometer issues. Did you check the fluid level yourself? Did this start after a fluid change (thinking maybe the wrong fluid?)? You may want to try just cleaning the connectors for those sensors.
