1995 Toyota Corolla Shakes at freeway Speeds?

I bought this car for a 100 dollars because it was in a side impact accident. After a few months i started having problems with shaking in the front end on the right side. I got the ball joint (i think) fixed at a shop because the front right broke and the car wouldn't move anymore after getting that fixed the shaking stopped for about 6 months now the shaking is back. It shakes really bad as soon as i hit 65 to 70 mph on the freeway. Could this be the tires needing to be rotated, the CV joint, the tie rod, or the rack and pinion? The tires are inflated correctly too. Should i just get a whole new wheel assembly? I like to fix my cars myself , instead of someone saying they fixed it and its not fixed. I also have a manual for my car. Can someone help? Also how can i fix the metal on the side of my car to make new doors close properly on the side with the major damage? Do i just heat up the metal with a blow torch and bang it back in place? I can also email a picture of my car where the damage is if that would help. Thank you for your help, Sincerely Cherie

You need to have your alignment, cambering diagnosed for you to know the real position of your four tires. yes you really need to check the tie rods.
Heating up the metal would most likely damage your paint and anti corrosion properties of your metal, try re-aligning the doors hinges by loosening the screws enough for the door to move, dont dismantle it.

How do I put the drivers side window back on the track?


It is a common problem in the Toyota Corollas build on late 90's. My car.had the same problem and I bought the window switch control unit attached in the driver's side door. That took care of the whole situation and after a year i haven't had no problems with it. I bought mine on Internet. They sale two versions I bought the ship one first and last only one month and broke down. Spend a couple dollars more and buy the good version. It is very easy to install..

Wheel shakes with balanced tires


Recently ballanced ? If they are steal rims they could be one bent if you have your tires rotated and its not as bad then thats it if it shakes at high speeds like freeway speeds then your car may need alignment and all the joints in the front end replaced along with the wheel bearings too

My toyota corolla airbag light have been on for like 2 months now is that right or do i have find solutions to it.


No this is not good, when your air bag light is illuminated the BCM or Body control module has detected a fault in the air bag system it could be a bad impact sensor or some other problem with the airbag system, any problems with the airbag system should be adressed quickly because a fault in the aigbag system could allow for a malfunction if an accident occurs your air bags might not deploy of your in an accident because of a faulty component detected by the computer, get this serviced right away if you can......

Pushed acceleration on freeway to 50-70 miles does not run smooth and shakes.


Could be any number of things, lets eliminate the transmission. Put the car in park and throttle the engine, is it snappy then? Or does it slowly rev up? If it still runs funny or isn't snappy, the tranny is not the problem. So it could be, weak fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or a ditributor problem. Could be a sensor to, but I've had 4 corollas and have never had a MAF sensor or others go out yet. I have had problems with the items I listed.
