  1. I recently shifted from Florida to Jersey City and got 2 tags for the car. Here law says to have tags in front and back. My corolla has no provsion to place tag infront and want to know how to fix the tag infront. Can somebody please let me know where should i go to get this fix?
  2. Oh yeah, i did ran my A/C. i noticed it when i parked my car at house. So u mean to say that condensation drops the water?? And thtz noraml u say?? Air conditioning is a vapor-compression cycle. Basically it cycles warm and moist air from inside the car over tubes containing liquid R134a. The R134a absorbs heat from the air and causes moisture to condense out of it. This makes the air not only cooler, but drier. That cool dry air is fed back into the cabin. The heat is exhausted through a heat exchanger and the water is allowed to drip out of the system through a tube under the car. The more humid the air is and the longer you run the air conditioner, the more water will condense out and end up on your garage floor or driveway. Look it up in your owners manual, it tells you that water dripping out from underneath the car after using AC is normal and doesn't indicate a malfunction. If it does it when you aren't using AC, then you have a problem. Thnxs for the technical explaination. Now i got the clear picture. It doesn't drip when not using A/C.

  4. i noticed after driving my car that there is water drpooing from below. I opened the hood and found out that there is open pipe not connetced to anything and is dripping with water. Don't know what is that? Is tht pipe should be connected to something? from where the water is coming and where it is suppose to go?
  5. I have read that whenever the tyres are dismounted/ mounted, balancing needs to be done. Is that true??
  6. I was driving on freeway last week and found out that my steering wheel shakes on 70mph or above. Wondering whether i need wheel balancing. Well i had my rear brake pads changed in Dec 07. Question though isn't my mechanic who replaced my gear pads suppose to balance the wheel too? I asked him if tyres needs to be rotated, he told me that it's front wheel drive so not required. Now i guess i will have to pay for wheel balancing or shouldn't be covered in tyre rotation. Please advice.
  7. i have to replace my Corolla CE 01 tyres, but don't know the size. Owner's manual does not specific it. If i know the size of tyres, i can go hunting for some. Also guys, can please recommend me the brands with good quality and low cost?? Should i go for all season tyres, well i live in Florida. Does all season tyres cost more than normal ones?? Please shed some light on it.
  8. My Corolla window tints are gone bad, it has got ripples. I can't see properly, especially the rear one. Thinking of retinting it. Can it be done by lay man like me or do we need a professional tinter? please advise.
  9. My Corolla 01 car's interior door handles are broken down. I asked my car mechanic, he quoted me like 26$ for each. Can somebody help me to get a cheaper ones. Does anybody know where can i get it in Florida??
