Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla
My 1999 Corolla broke down on the expressway after the oil light flickered on and off, then stayed on steady for about 20 minutes. Then the battery light came on and the car shut down. I just had the oil changed and the car checked out 2 weeks ago because the oil and brake light kept coming on. They told me the car was fine. Now I have a dead engine, faulty strut mounts, and a Toyota dealership telling me that it will cost between $5000 and $6000 to repair. I paid $5000 for it and still owe $3000 on it! What do I do?
Have you had the timing belt and the cam shaft checked?? I had similar problems with my corolla and the dealership replaced the bulbs and then the fuses thinking that they were bad, but it turned out that when my timing belt went bad and was replaced it 'corrupted' the cam shaft.
