New to me 1994 Corolla DX

By joshutsr, September 17, 2018 in Pre-1997 Toyota Corolla and Geo Prizm

Well I'm done with my piece of crap Plymouth Duster and am picking up a 94 DX for $800. Passed smog but has some good vibrations coming from the middle of the hood so I'm suspecting that it's a motor mount and maybe the transmission one I hope. It only has 150,000 and I'm excited. Took it for a test drive and the automatic shifted good minus that loud vibration sound. I should take a video of before and after to help others trouble shoot and see if it helps.

Anyways what should I be looking for with this car? I've never owned a Toyota and I know she's an old car but passed smog and drives nice makes me happy.

Look for anything else that might be loose under ther, could be radiator mount or some such... loose airbox lid... 

Ok well I have the car and noticed something funny. When I hit the brake lights my dash lights come on. Then when my driving lights are on my brake lights are always on.


Could that be a switch for the brake light issue?

Sounds like a bad ground or a short somewhere in the harness.
