Question about 1995 Toyota Corolla

1995 Toyota Corolla broken bolt

First the air conditioner went out--then a belt broke and the power steering went out--we were told that the bolt that holds the pully on and bolts to the crankshaft broke off and that they (the shop) couldnt get it out and we need to replace the motor.

Do we really?

There are other solutions but they are not any cheaper unless you can find someone who can drill the bolts out because otherwise the crankshaft would have to be replaced. This would cost about the same as replacing the engine.

SOURCE: toyota corolla runs but shaft broken-can't get it out

Such items don't break on their own.
In any case, a good mechanic should be able to remove a broken retaining bolt, but access to it may be poor, depending on the model. Those I have dealt with are accessible by removing the plastic inner fender on the right side of the car.
I don't know what they are claiming is the relationship between a broken retaining bolt and a broken belt, or the air conditioner "going out", or who or what broke the bolt.
That bolt is commonly used to rotate the motor by placing a socket or spanner on it. It is quite a large bolt, and should easily stand being used to crank the motor around. So unless it has been used to prevent the crank turning at some past time while doing something else to the engine or transmission, I fail to see why it would break!

Toyota Corolla 1995. Quality of air conditioner reduced when stopped (traffic light) or moving at slow speed (condenced city traffic) No problem on the highway. Checked freon gas and fan. Understand that...


Normal, the ac heat exchanger condenser need air moving across the fins to remove the heat. While moving in town the condenser isn't remove the meat that is building up the it's aluminum fins. Even though the vehicle uses an electric fan. The fan is used to cool the engine temperature. If you Toyota is equip-ed with automatic transmission. The electric fan will need to pull enough air to cool the engine temperature, automatic transmission fluid, air conditioner condenser, and maybe power steering condenser to cool the power steering fluid. Later model of vehicles/trucks are using different refrigerants instead R134A in which you Toyota uses.

The simples way to explain is the ac remove heat from inside your Toyota and this heat is removed by the refrigerants inside your ac in the car. To cool the refrigerant this coolant is removed to the heat exchanger condenser located in front of the engine radiator. So, while moving at 60mph there is enough air flow through the radiator, ac head condenser, and other aluminum heat exchangers. GB...stewbison

Power steering hard


Check for low power steering fluid, a broken belt (there is a belt that connects the engine's main drive pulley to the power steering, alternator, air conditioning, etc. pulleys) or your power steering pump went bad and will need to be replaced.

The belt is not adjusted correctly - that is assuming that the correct belt has been installed for your vehicle. If you'r esure it has, then the belt needs to be adjusted tighter onto the pulleys. It's not hard to do, and if your alternator wasn't tightened all the way, it may have loosened during driving. Have this checked and it should be fine. I've had this same thing happen a few times over my 46 years of life.
