Is this the solution for a starter motor that whirs and does not engage?
Coincedentally the bottom water hose of the radiator leaks, so must have been running hot.

I don't believe it has a belt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The one I have 2003 Toyota Corolla has timing chain.
And I think all 2003 Toyota Corolla have timing chains.
So don't let them ( workshops) lie to you.
You can browse the internet to see if yours has a timing belt or timing chain?
Just put same question in the Google, yahoo, or about.com and search
they'll direct you to so money sites, which will show u if
yours has a timing belt or timing chain!

SOURCE: my corolla pings alot
Number of possibilities.
One rare situation is that accumulated carbon in the head can increase compression and require a switch to premium gas.
Another is that the compression is supposed to be high but that they count on the EGR to poison the mixture enough to prevent it. So a malfunctioning EGR can cause ping.
Another is that the in some cars, the centrifugal or vacuum advance can be weak and cause timing to be too advanced when reved up.
Most cars also have a knock sensor that is supposed to automatically prevent ignition timing advance if the fuel is not up to it, and it could be bad.
First thing I would try is a tank full of premium, or an octane additive. Then I would try backing off the ignition timing, regardless of what the spec says it is supposed to be. I would also check the timing with all hoses on, with a strobe light, and at high RPM, to check advance.
