What is the normal run in kilometer's for a 2010 Corolla before the engine is run in?

How long would it take to warm up a Corolla with temperatures below zero, i.e. - 12 Degrees?
It depends on how you are warming up the car. If you do it correctly & drive the car easy it will warm up much quicker than allowing it to idle while warming up. :D

I do agree, thats why i didint go for remote starter. Save gas and time. and besides, it only allow us to idle the car for 3 mins on winter, or else youll got ticket!

Btw, a really informative thread! stick it!

Yeah, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW thread. Well, one of the frustrations of new Corolla owners is how to change the oil filter (after the freebie maintenance runs out). Apparently the new cannister filters require a special tool to take apart the filter assembly, right? Is there a drain tube issue involved? In fact, is there ANY decent tutorial (or person to ask here) who can answer the simple question of HOW DO I CHANGE MY OIL FILTER? Thanks.......

Everything you need to know.....except how to search!:lol: ---->How to remove the oil filter


If youve done oil changes on previous vehicles, you dont need a tutorial for this car. My best advice is a get one of the tools listed in the thread I linked (I have the adjustable type, works ok). When you get under the car, take the filter out before you drain the oil. I do this, exepcially on a new car, so that I know I'll be able to complete the job before I drain the oil out.

Hope this helps:thumbsup:

There are no tricks to changing the oil & filter on the Corolla. It just uses a canister oil filter, once the housing is off the filter is easily exchanged with a new supplied o-ring & installed. Get one of the supplied tools if you don't already have one to get the housing off. I can just loosen my with my hands once I did my first oil change. :thumbsup:
