  2. I've heard of older Corolla engines rev-ing fast at idle when cold. Maybe they (Corollas) just do that? IDK. Btw, what year is your car?

    Speedometer Not Working

    Had the same problem 96 Toyota Corolla. Got a used cluster from junkyard but now odometer works and speedometer doesn’t.
  5. Earlier
  6. Due to abuse, I've taken away guest posting rights.
  7. With manifold leak, there might also be a check engine light. M.I.L._ON_DTC_P0171,_AND_OR_PO133_ENGINE_RUNNING_LEAN_IN_SUBFREEZING_AMBIENT_TEMPERATURES_T-EG045-07.pdf
  8. Could potentially be a leak in the intake manifold. On 9th gen Corollas like yours, there was a TSB for an updated intake manifold gasket that sealed better against the composite material, especially in cooler temperatures. But those tend to "cycle" between fast idle and normal idle constantly. If it is just fast idles right after starting up - but eventually coming back down to normal idle range - sounds like it could be the new normal to me. Noticed my RAV4 and Corolla doing that more and more when the weather is colder - chalking that up to the amount of miles on them (almost 300k on Corolla, 105K on RAV4).
  9. Doesn't appear to be a motor mount to me. Looks more like one of the rubber bumpers that attach to the hood or even possibly part of the radiator mount (vibration isolator). Could also be something that sits next to the hood release latch to help push up the hood. Since the Vibe has some parts that are not interchangeable with the Toyota Matrix clone - totally possible GM tried to shoehorn something from their parts bin in there that I'm not familiar with. But unless the car is driving or running erratically, I wouldn't worry too much about it at this moment - sounds like you have other stuff to worry about.
  10. Looks to me as though the coolant temperature sensor is disconnected, bad, or improperly grounded (or shorting). Check engine light would apply to that. Oil pressure light always goes on when you have the engine in Run but not running. Temp gauge is the giveaway. Fan runs because the car detects bad coolant temp sensor. Code reader is your friend!!
  11. just looked and the offset is +40 on the konigs. I've looked at all those sites before. I was just wondering if anyone was running them because I have found literally no pictures of them on a corollaXD thanks for the help though
  12. Just got my motor back together after replacing the head gasket, rings and rod bearings. I followed the Haynes manual first start procedure: removed spark plugs, disconnected the fuel circuit opening relay, and removed the distributor cap and rotor and jumped the center contact to ground. This is to prime the oil pump which was also replaced. When I turn the key to "on," the radiator fan starts running and does not turn off without disconnecting the battery. The check engine light, and the oil pressure warning light both come on. The temperature gauge also moves into the bottom of the normal range. When I turn the key to "start" nothing happens with the starter. I removed the starter and had it tested. It works. I also tested the starter relay. Powered, and unpowered it checks out. The fusible links associated with the starter circuit both look good. Any insight would be much appreciated.
  13. This is what I found out for 17"x8" rims with brand Konig ... https://www.fitmentindustries.com/store/wheels?sort=popular&year=2003&make=Toyota&model=Corolla&trim=CE&suspension=Stock Suspension&dia=17&width=8&brand=Konig&bolt=5x3.94%2C5x100
  14. I think your offset is fine. When I go to wheel and tire web sites (FitmentIndustries.com, etc.) the offset is usually between +40 and 35. You may want to verify what fits on a web site like that. Another good one might be tirerack.com
  15. First post, anyone running The 17x8 +35 Konig hypergrams on their 9th gen? or a similarly specced wheel? Any rubbing or anything nasty like that? I'm still on the stock suspension right now but was thinking of going with the Bilstein B12 PRO KIT. If anyone is running that kit I'd love to know how that's going.
  16. I hope it isnt a trans issue, although it very well could be. The car started droning very loudly as well- maybe thats related? I'm just trying to avoid paying top dollar at the dealer, and I'm worried that once they have my car they might try to insist I have to pay for random things that may or may not work
  17. Funny story - we thought my wife's Toyota Venza was beeping. Turned out that the garage door opener needed battery replaced. It was really weird, as it sounded like it was from the Venza, due to it being under the garage door opener. Then, we heard the beeping when the Venza was not in the garage.
  18. This is from a 2004 Pontiac Vibe (I spend most of my time creeping around corolla forums, more support) with the 1ZZ-FE engine, FWD. Part is about 2.5'tall and 2' in diameter. Best guess if from a motor mount but I can't see for sure where it would come into play, nor have i seen anything in Haynes or Service Manual yet. For Background: Since last winter I have been slowly working on a clutch and head gasket. So all pulleys, motor mounts, subframe and exhaust have come off and are now working their way back on. In full disassembly I moved about 75 miles and had it on a trailer. not until I first popped the hood after the move did this little gem fall out. Additional information: Along with those repairs I have done several other things: Gas Tank repair, Filler Neck, Catalytic Converter replacement, both 02 Sensors, all Brake Pads/Shoes/Rotors/Drums/Calipers, front and rear Shocks and Struts, Lower Control Arm Bushings, Tie Rods, Vavles, Valve Guides/Seals, Timing Chain/Guides/Tensioner, Oil Pump, Water Pump, Thermostat, Coolant Temp Sensor, PCV, Flywheel, and all applicable Gaskets/Seals, Spark Plugs, Air/Oil filter, all Fluids. In addition, I've replaced all interior Seats/Trim/Carpet/Headliner/Rear Hatch except for Dash. Remote Start, other Audio and Lighting Wiring. So there is a lot going on, hard to narrow down just based on what I've been into. Any help, very, very appreciated.
  19. I've got a 98 camry, just wondering if the 2zz vvtli motor from the 05 corolla would fit and if so what would need to be done to make it fit
  20. Another thought: shut off the beeping, if the locks aren't being activated. Open the driver's door and leave it open throughout this process. Within five seconds, put the ignition key in, remove it, put it in again, and turn it to RUN (not START!) Wait ten seconds, then push Lock twice within ten seconds. It should beep twice to tell you the beeps are off. (This is from 2002, not sure it will still work in 2010.)
  21. Is it also trying to lock the doors? Could be that one of the remotes is broken and one of the buttons is making contact when it shouldn't (e.g. bad spring). If that's not it, it might actually be someone operating some radio equipment on the wrong frequency in the area, though really that shouldn't do it with modern locking codes. I would try taking the batteries out of the remotes first, and see if that stops it.
  22. Afternoon, My dad's 2010 toyota corolla, constantly beeps all day when turned off and parked. It isn't beeping at a consistent time (e.g- every 5 seconds) But when it does beep once, it will beep another several times. quite annoying, to me and probably my neighbours also.... Not too sure if theres an easy home fix I can do, or should I take it back to the dealership.
  23. Note: should be even faster now
  24. PS> Testing. Please let me know if you find any problems with the site.
  25. ... or try swapping the injector to another cylinder and then see if it's the valve or injector.
  26. Some injectors click loudly... If that's your only problem I'd ignore it.
  27. Yes, that's the topic.

    Shell Rotella T6 5W-40

    Agreed. I had a car whose engine made a valve-tap noise pretty consistently for around 100,000 miles. Then I sold it
