  1. 1998 Corolla weird rattling sound coming from Engine [Solved]

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I haven't done all that much research on the topic yet. But through basic searching have found some people saying the ones toyota makes now are not as good as the ones they used to make. The part number for the OE tensioner is N.L.A. and supersedes to the one they use on the matrix from like...
  2. 1998 Corolla weird rattling sound coming from Engine [Solved]

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I was going to say check the pulley tensioner system out, because thats the last cause of a rattle on my car. Diagnosing a noise complaint like that over an phone video is really throwing darts at a board. There are different points of NVH made at different speeds of the crankshaft. Usually...
  3. How to swap mileage from one cluster to another?

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I wouldn't put the car in gear but thats because I don't know how they work there system. Lots of cars log the miles in multiple places to avoid odometer discrepancy so people cant just go changing clusters and getting away with shady business. Other cars I have touched will log additional miles...
  4. HELP: Remove fuel from Tank

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I don't remember what it looked like when I was down there. Its fwd but I kind of remember the tank being tunnel'd, and the exhaust occupying the tunnel. Maybe not though.
  5. Do I really need the brakes splash shield

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Just fix it when you do the wheel bearings. Most of them need the hub off or you have to bend the plate if applicable and then bend it back to cheat it. I haven't looked at it but if you can hit the bolts you could pick up a cheap used one and cut a slit in it if its a closed off design and see...
  6. Belt Tensioner Replacements

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    In my experiance the lifetime warranty is bs, my specific autozone's might just be garbage. But the I bought one reman is was garbage out of the box. It supplied enough power to keep the car running but the voltage regulator was worse then the 18 year old one in the factory alternator. The...

  8. Need Help! Valve Cover Gasket

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Where do you put RTV on the 98 corolla? The main gasket has the four rings in the middle for the spark plug tubes.
  9. lukewarm heater output

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Toyota coolant has glycol does it not?
  10. lukewarm heater output

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I think youre missing something here. The car just gave you a cry for help, so if you get stranded dont blame the car. Where did the coolant go? It is a sealed system like the motor oil.
  11. 98 Rolla has the Left Turn Blues

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Here I am reading that thinking your talking about the electrical system lol. Mine leaks and has been leaking for the past 5 years, I only topped off the fluid once or twice in that time period thru the dipstick hole. Dont overfil it though, your better off adding less and then adding a little...
  12. Door Panels question

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    A door panel should be 20 bucks. I passed up an entire corolla S with nice black interior for 300 bucks because it had body damage from an accident. It should not be hard to find a door panel, pro tip don't walk into a junkyard dressed nicely, your prices will go up. And act like you know what...
  13. Alignment Issues Despite Multiple Alignments

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    How many miles on the tires? The shop did a two wheel alignment. Toe and go. I'm guessing you have some miles on the tires, over 10K. If the tires are not worn evenly your doing an alignment to worn tires. The camber and caster are different on both sides. You can play with them a little bit...
  14. DIY: Oil Consumption Fix

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Burning oil IN the combustion chamber, like from a faulty headgasket. blue smoke out the tail pipe would be a sign. That doesn't look like there is any only on the stick unless you wiped it but its a camera picture which isn't the same as being there in person. The oil should be in between...
