  1. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have what sounds to be a tiny horse galloping in my left front wheel area. The faster I go, the faster and louder it gallops. The pattern and tone of the sound is very similar to a horse galloping across a field (in the distance) and although I can drown it out by turning up the radio, I can...

    Hi, I have 2003 Toyota Matrix that has 1ZZ-FE. The car has been sitting long time, now I'm trying to make it run good so I can sell it. (0:19~ 0:24 Loud and Clear) So while this car is in drive around 2000 RPM, it's making rattling or knocking noise. I don't know how to describe it. < But...

    I was looking through my owners manual and I found a page for an auto dimming rear view mirror. Does anyone have this option on their corolla? Would it be possible to retro fit one?
  5. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I am looking for something with simple install and use a replacement mirror (not the clip on types) and not a dash/windshield mount type monitor. I have researched a lot it seems, but all have unique issues of their own. Any of you matrix/vibe guys have suggestions or tried something you...

    I have a 2009 Matrix XRS (engine 2.4L L-4 DOHC 16v) that I have owned for 3 years. The mileage is about 122,000. It is going through a quart of oil every 1000 miles or so. I have had it checked and I was told that it is a common problem with this engine. One shop advised me to keep an eye...

    I want to replace the factory radio on my 2005 Matrix XR with a new touchscreen radio (with navigation). However, from what I understand, it can be challenging to connect the wires since the existing wires are different colors than the wires on the new stereo. Does anyone have a chart that...

  10. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    My car recently had a dead battery that I jump started to have the new battery replaced. That battery died 2 days later so I also replaced the alternator and the previous battery was not holding a charge so I replaced that too. Been driving way more than the previous new battery lasted and...

    Hey all, moving from one problem to another with my transmission replacement on my 2007 matrix xr. Got everything back together and test drove it yesterday. it feels like the clutch is slipping a bit going into first. I feel a loss of power with a small increase in rpm while starting up hill or...
  12. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hi all, first time posting here looking for advice! I have a real head scratcher. I have replaced the transmission on my 2007 matrix xr (man. 5 speed) with a tranny from the junk yard from a 2008 corolla. Everything has gone back together totally fine and I was about to celebrate when I got...
  13. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to swap out the E351 transmission from the matrix and swap it for the E350 that was in the 2005-2010 Scion tC? I'm wanting the lower final drive that came in the Scion transmission. If it's not an easy swap then maybe the diffs are interchangeable? Any help...
  14. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi new to the site. I have a 2010 Matrix with the 2ZR-FE and 5 speed. The 5 speed is on its last legs and rather than replacing it with the same, I'm hoping to swap a 6 speed into it for some added performance. I just wanted to see what all is needed to do the swap so that I can get a parts list...

    my matrix 2azfe once warmed up will idle low when the rad fan turns on. so low that the engine starts to shake which shakes the shifter as well. it never stalls but the shifter starts to shake like crazy which is quite irritating. this only happens after the cars warmed up enough that the...

    Just bought a 2010 Matrix XRS. When I bought it I noticed it had some history codes which is normal for newer cars that have aged so I just cleared them. Usually replacing the battery or having a dying battery makes the cars ECM go nuts and trip codes. Yesterday I was idling my car in my...

    Hello, I just purchased a really nice 03 Matrix but the previous owner ran it dry of oil seizing the engine so now I have put another engine in the car but the ORIGINAL tranny wont engage with the engine. I only have this last day to figure out my problem as I need to get it off the property...

    It's been a long time coming. The car drives great! Just needs a good clean and detail! The Matrix community on instagram came in clutch and got me in contact with a gent who has lowered his Matrix XRS on Celica coilovers, helped me out a bunch!

  20. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I am the 3rd owner of a 09 Matrix Base 1.8l Auto with 150,000mi. The coolant has been very dirty (brownish) and went to get it serviced but was told there was oil in the system. Was quoted an absurd amount of money for a new engine. I brought the car to a mechanic that my boss from work trusted...
