Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla
I have a 2009 toyota corolla. Sometimes when I go to start it the starter will not disengage. I am wondering if I have to replace the starter and solenoid or just the solenoid. Since the engine is sideways I am also wondering how hard it is going to be. I have only done one other starter and that was a chevette. On that car I had to pull the steering column and jack the engine over 1/2", not fun. TIM

Starters can get Carbon gunk buildup in their housing , if you see 4 nuts round about its cylinder housing ? you can rebuild it back to its original state , that buildup is the main cause for starters to get stuck either on? or not engage but crank in stall ,only time your starter solenoid is bad ? is when the following happens :
1- no crank at all when you have power to it and ground .
2- when you have only 12 volt reading but amps draining fast / and have good ground , this is due to the solenoid circuit been fried .

In 1998 the 1zz-fe engine was intoduced. Toyota only added variable valve timing in the 2000-2002 1zz Corolla engines. Same engine same parts and components
Computers should not need swapped but you could go to the dealer and ask for the part number for 1998-2002 ECU's for Corolla. This is the electronic control modul on the car that runs the engines.It is usually located under the dash by the passengers side glove box.

SOURCE: 2009 Corolla steering problem
I had this "problem" but there wasn't anything wrong with the car - it was just my driving...
The steering is just sensitive and "sporty" - try driving with a much lighter hand - even one hand, lower on the wheel. I now find the steering great and its actually very responsive.
It took 3 visits to Toyota before someone finally explained this to me but it works. People kept explaining that it "drives like a Corolla" but couldn't tell me how to drive it better.
Mind you the car is still horrible on windy days but I don't have same issues in normal highway driving.
A year ago I was actually renting cars for road trips instead of driving my 09 Corolla S I was that freaked out about the steering but I'm now completely comfortable driving the car. I do have to warn everyone that drives my car on the highway though...they never believe me at first but always concede that I'm right and that a light hand makes a huge difference.

P0741 deals with internal transmission torque converter slip. A proper scan tool that is capable of reading the sensor's data inside the transmission would show the slipping torque converter and the fluid temperature.
It is critical to know exactly what conditions are present when the code stores. If the codes were not erased, they could be old codes in it's history.
Go back to the transmission shop or where you had the work done on replacing the TCC solenoid and have them read and clear the codes history. As mentioned, they could be old codes that is being read prior to your repairs.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck, Have a shop verify line pressure, and provided no valves in the TCC hydraulic circuit are worn, replace the torque converter. Also, Lubegard Shudder Fix will at least fix this for awhile. Or try a transmission flush by a shop that uses BG brand products.
