  2. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    As the title says, I just had the two codes pop up. First was the p2445, then the p0505 came shortly after. I understand that these could each be vacuum pressure issues, but would these be connected issues?
  3. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have an 06 Corolla XRS and have been reading about ECU flashes from places like MWR and R9K Tuned to lower the Lift engagement and raise the rev-limiter. Has anyone got one of these tunes in California and been able to pass a SMOG check? I'd like a flashed ECU but don't have enough $$ for a...
  4. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I noticed recently that even with the handbrake pulled all the way back, the car still rolls severely(even on slight inclined/declined pavements) and the e-brake no longer functions. Is it the cable? I've never done this kind of job before. Only way for my car to park is to park the car in 1st...
  5. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Does anyone know the torque specs for the front and rear struts? If this question has been answered or they are listed somewhere, please let me know. Thanks!
  6. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hi all, I drive a 2004 Matrix XR, and today I lucked out at the local wrecker and found an XRS matrix with it's interior still intact. Being that I wanted a new driver's seat anyways (mine had lots of play in the rail assembly causing it to rock back and forth) I took both front seats and the...
  7. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, So I bought a 2005 corolla xrs a couple months ago, and I was looking into getting a new axleback exhaust, but I can’t seem to find a new exhaust that isn’t the full catback magnaflow system ($740). I saw there’s a borla exhaust for the 10th gen corolla, and the hanging pins looked...
  8. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    So basically, I'm trying to find ways to lose weight to offset things I'm adding. I wanna add a small sub and amp and new wheels which are a bit heavier which will slow it down a bit but I'm not tracking it this year or anything so I'm fine but I'm trying to think of ways to lose weight to...
  9. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    So I have to take my transmission out to get a quote to get it rebuilt. MWR is out of used ones :( right as I need one, great timing but I have noticed a few issues, some very concerning with mah car 1. I did notice that after around maybe 3-4 thousand miles [Not completely sure on mileage] it...
  10. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, I have a 2008 Corolla CE with the 1zzfe and a 5 speed transmission. I've been looking into a turbo kit from turbokits.com and I've decided to order it in the spring. I know these 5 speeds have been somewhat unreliable in a stock application, and I'm just wondering if anyone has any...
  11. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    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!
  12. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Ok so, New Used engine has been installed. 1st the engine cranks but there is no spark. -Camshaft sensor is OK -Spark Plugs are OK -Ignition coils do work [I have 8 in total from both engines and there's no way all 8 failed at once] and have 12v all signs point the crankshaft sensor or ECM...
  13. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey everyone, I think I can start to call my little Matrix a build. I'm beyond happy so far, keeping it simple, level with the kind of car it is, and tons of smiles per mile. Every major change I've done is listed here: -Pioneer AVH 25550 NEX Head Unit -Painted engine beauty cover and exhaust...
  14. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2005 Corolla XRS which hasn’t had a working e-brake since I bought it, it had rear disk brakes with a drum hand brakeoriginally it was seized, but after purchasing the power stop drilled and slotted rotors I also purchased a new spring kit and pads for the hand brake. I was able to get...
  15. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2005 XRS, I was interesting in doing the R9ktuned.com ECU reflash: Lower Lift Point – 5600 – 6000rpm (depends on supporting engine mods) Raise Rev Limiter – 8600 – 9000rpm (depends on supporting engine mods) Fuel Maps Revised Ignition Maps Revised VVT-i Cam Phasing Revised CEL/DTC Code...
  16. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Just got an XRS from Copart with a clean title. Sadly it has 262K miles on it but I plan on replacing the engine and transmission later. Its also my first time driving a manual and its very difficult to not stall it. Just wanted some tips on how to take care of it for now. Some notes -The gas...
  17. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    The fitment is a little off, but I'm honestly happy enough with it. It's a K&N Typhoon. It sounds amazing, the little 4 banger sounds pretty aggressive for what it is. Looking at a TRD Strut brace next since that's also super easy. Just need to buy a torque wrench for that. According to...
  18. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey everyone, this summer in finally planning on installing some mods to my 2010 Matrix XRS. One of them being one of the only TRD parts for my car, the strut brace that runs behind/above the engine. I just want some foresight before I dive in. Obviously I'll need some wrenches, but do I...
  19. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi everyone, I'm aware of the now seemingly ancient thread about modifications here, however, I'm wary of buying the wrong part and having to go through returning the part. I'm new to cars in general, and I'm eager to learn more about them as a side hobby. Like any teenager, I want to slap some...
  20. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2006 corolla xrs entire brake systems were removed and have drained as the car was getting fully repainted engine bay etc... Bled the brakes but the abs module has a air leak noise when the pedal is fully pressed we’ve attempted time and time again but that air leak noise won’t go away...
