    thanks for the response. the engine is running perfectly at a single turn of key...no weird noises or anything. its the wheels that refuse to move. when this problem occured i was driving on the freeway and suddenly it kind of lurched (as if i was braking and releasing) and i pulled over. when i tried drining again it went about a 50-100 feet and then it lurched again and i could feel as if there was a dead weight under teh carriage dragging it. Since it is such an old car we just want to make sure if its something we can afford to get repaired if we tow it to the repair shop.

    the mechanic who came by to see said it was the brake buster and we trusted him and spent 150 bucks chnaging it. nothing changed!! now he says it can be the differential...or anything else!!!

Remove a sparkplug and check for spark. My guess is that the engine is not running?? If no spark, check the fuses, if ok, check the ignition wiring. More than likely you will find a wire has fallen off.
Do Not replace any parts unless they are faulty!
You do have spark, then it will be a fuel prob. I believe this car still uses a carb, not fuel injected. If so, the float valve can get stuck causing the engine to get flooded. Remove the breather, turn the throttle by hand, there should be gas squirting into the throat of the carb. If yes, then the valve is stuck. A cheap fix is to add half a cup of auto trans to the fuel. It should start if you hold the choke open with a screwdriver. Do Not Pump the gas peddle!! After about 5 minutes, take it for a drive! Enjoy Frankster016

I now have 98,000 miles on my car. How much longer can it last without major repair work?


150,000 miles is usually the mark for a timing chain engine to get the tensioners looked at. Other than that, the only known issues are all recalls or TSB's. The computer failure, which should have been done by now, and the engine belt tensioner going bad prematurely, replaced by a stronger design, and the clock going dim, which is a quick soldiering fix. Corollas are very, very long lasting cars as long as you do regular maintenance, oil changes every 5000 (basically when the light comes on, sooner if older or lots of hard driving), flush brake fluid yearly, coolant as specified, and (if applicable) automatic transmission fluid at the 30,000's, with a screener every other change. 200,000 miles is easy to come by on these cars. Also, don't get the Bendix engine belt. It's rubbish. Dayco or Gatorback will last a lot longer.

1997 toyota carolla at 112,000KM what are the additional maintenance requirements, ie timing belt, water pump, spark plugs, etc I have a generic maintenance log which does not provide specifics,...


Timing belt inspection is in order, and if the timing belt is replaced, then the water pump should be replaced also. I have inspected timing belts on many engines that have over 150,000 miles on them and found the timing belt was perfect. It is hard to say why some vehicles wear out a belt moe than others, but replacing the belt is good insurance. As for the plugs, I would just replace them. They will wear out sooner than any timing belt.

I am buying a 1986 Toyota Corolla from my landlord and the car has been sitting for 6 months. It cranks up, runs fine, just needs a new exaust. What else should I check on it before purchasing the vehicle?


Check the oil!! make sure its clean and doesnt show signs of a blown head gasket. "Milky Colored" Check the transmission fluid "Should be clearish red and smell like hydraulic fluid" Not brown and smell burnt. Glance underneath for rusted brake lines and body/frame cancer. If all looks well enjoy your new car. Hope this helps

I recently bought a second hand 1994 model toyota corolla SE limited edition,the milage are already 191000 km. with proper mentainance,how long does this unit last?5 years more or 10 from now.?


Toyota is a good car. If there is a proper maintenance, it could go to an addition of 100000km until it dies . We have to go by the distance since it determines the wear out. If you can make this distance in 10 years, then it is yes for 10 years. If you can make this distance within 5 years then it can be also yes. Maintenance during the period is including timing belt change, water pump, and radiator replacement. Oil , oil filter, air filter, and fuel filter need to be replaced per maintenance schedule, then you are good with a condition that you have a good compression ratio at the time you bought the car. Have shop to check this before invest in the replacement. Good luck.

Installing new timing belt


Click on the following direct Link. It has several Diagrams for your Timing Belt, including the Marks.
One Diagram has the Idler Pulley Tensioner which must be loosened in order to remove the Timing Belt.
