    Help! Car shuts off while driving wont restart. 2009 S corolla

    It's a cam/crank correlation codes. Valve cover was pulled and it was discovered that the timing chain broke. Car was driving when it shut off, but engine light did come on a few minutes before it shut off. Shop did say it was a bit low on oil, about 3/4 a quart, but it was due for an oil...

    Transmission Fluid 2012 Corolla

    I did the transmission fluid on my 2011 Corolla recently. There is a drain plug at the bottom of the transmission oil pan. I drained Mine, measured how much came out and refilled VIA the dipstick tube. I would advise to ONLY use transmission fluid purchased at the dealer. Using the wrong fluid...

    So I'm looking to install a subwoofer and amplifier in the Corolla. I want to keep as much of the trunk space as possible since it is used a lot so i was thinking of going towards a shallow subwoofer route. This is what I've been looking at...

    What bulbs are you running in your 2009-2011 Corollas

    Recently installed the fog light kit on my 2011 corolla and I want to upgrade the fog light bulbs but have no clue if I should install LEDs or HIDs. The headlights have Philips X-treme vision halogen bulbs, really crisp bright lighting, but wouldn't go to HIDs on those since it's halogen...

    Speaker Recommendations?

    Yea, not going all out on speaker upgrades. Probably Pioneer 6x9 3 way for the rear and probably the same for the front along with the A-pillar tweeters. The front takes 6x9 speakers as well? 2 way or 3 way for the front?

    2011 Corolla - What Other Oil Can I Use Instead of 0W-20?

    Thanks a lot! I will be headed to the states in April, so I will be grabbing a couple bottles of 0W20 as it is cheaper over there than here in Toronto. By then, there would be less than 10,000 kms on the oil on the car...

    Speaker Recommendations?

    Anyone replaced the stock speakers in their Corolla? These factory ones don't sound to great to be honest. I'm looking to upgrade the rear first since it's the easiest, but I wanted to hear some recommendations from people here first. Ideas?

    2011 Corolla - What Other Oil Can I Use Instead of 0W-20?

    Yea...I'll just stick with 0W20, just gotta watch when it's on sale or buy across the border. Out of curiosity, how much quarts of oil does the Corolla take?

    Why Did You Buy A Toyota Corolla?

    Price, Fuel economy (Big reason), simplicity of it and easy to work on, Parts readily available, and the good reputation of the engine and tranny. Plus, it's for my mom, so she doesn't care about fast and fun cars or lots of features. Simplicity works best for her.

    2011 Corolla - What Other Oil Can I Use Instead of 0W-20?

    Does the manual state any other acceptable oil? Cause $60 for a 4.5 quart bottle of 0W20 is kinda expensive, especially since I don't go past 10,000 kms on oil, regardless of Synthetic or Conventional (Hence why I only use Conventional). What changed that they spec'd it from 5W30 for the older...

    2011 Corolla - What Other Oil Can I Use Instead of 0W-20?

    For our 2011 Corolla, it calls for 0W20...which is really expensive here in Toronto. I was wondering if I can switch to 5W30 or 5W20, as I can get them for a cheaper price. I am aware that the interval will be cut shorter. I'm thinking of going 8,000 kms on Valvoline conventional....ideas?

    2011 Corolla - Replacing The Cluster Bulbs?

    Thanks! Oh, so it isn't the type where you can just swap the bulbs. Got to soldier them in, which I have no clue to do. Thanks for the info though, i'll put this project on hold for now then.

    Hello from Toronto

    Damn, never knew that about the 2009's and 2010's.I thought they were different due to the difference in the front and the rear but I was sooo wrong. Looks like we'll be looking around for a 2005-2008 Corolla then.
