    I´ve been loosing coolant on my 01 Corolla that is powered by a 7AFE engine. I´ve already replaced the radiator cap and the lower plastic radiator tank because it had a small crack.

  14. 99 4cyl camry- Engine problem?

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I was driving my camry today and noticed a noise from the passenger side- at first I thought it was suspension in the front wheel on that side because it was sporadic. I have a loud exhaust leak so this may have been in the making for a while. I noticed a lack of power, looked at the gauges and...

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    My 2001 Corolla with something over 200,000 miles takes awhile to start, it sputters, and when it first starts, when you press the accelerator, the engine actually decelerates at first, before it accelerates. I took it in to an auto shop. They said the spark plugs were bad, the fuel pump was...
  18. 0 psi in all 4 cylinders on my 93 Previa 2tz-fe? Any ideas to what the cause is?

    Previa Forum
    I have came to the conclusion that the head gasket has blown on my 1993 Previa LE with 291,000. She was driving great up until a couple of weeks ago when someone (NOT ME, for the record) accidentally left the coolant reservoir cap off, not realizing the mistake until the van had been driven 30...

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
