Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Pool of water behind driver seat

I bought an auctioned Toyota Corolla CE 2005. After the first real downpour of a couple of hours I noted about a half-inch of water in the foot area behind the driver seat. Unable to visually identify leak. Have not yet undertaken any further leak tests. Noted a similar problem reported on your website on Jan 05, 2009, on a Corolla 2003. No definite source found yet on that car. Appreciate suggestions.

    I know much more re above problem. First of all, I still see no reason to retract my observation that more recent Toyota model years are not as solidly and beautifully finished as previous years. That said I must apologize for an earlier claim of mine that the water leak in the left upper corner of the back window resulted from shoddy work of Toyoya --- well, not of Toyota, but of some shop which did repair work in the upper rear back, most likely causing that leak through a tiny hole right next to the window seal. A repair attempt by some back alley reapair shop, which only applied window sealant into the groove between window glass and window metal body, did not plug the leak; the water found a way behind the sealant and dripped down into the inside right next to the sealant wad. I guess I will have to bring the car to a car widow place to renew the upper window seal in toto. More advise: Remove the plastic covers inside and the back bench to retrace the exact origin of a leak. Further, sealants suggest a minimal temperature to be applied; if it is significantly colder, defer the repair. By the way, the car does not have a sun roof (question from fixya).

More than likely to be either front or rear windscreen, water seeps under carpets to lowest part of floor, if vehicle is a hatch back check the channel at top of door opening is not blocked with leaves or debris as this can cause water to overflow and into vehicle

Bring it to a mechanic different than the one who gave you that advice. I suspect that the plug gasket is leaking. It is possible that you need a new oil pan if you hit it with something like a rock or driving over a curb. Again a mechanic can inspect it and tell you right away. The dealer oil changes have nothing to do with this.

Does the Corolla 2005 CE allow for the keyless remote locks?

That depends if the car originally was equipped with the receiver for the keyless system. If so, you can buy the remotes from a dealer for about 99 dollars each. If the car does NOT hve the keyless receiver, the remotes will not work. What I would do is take the car to a dealer, their techs can look to see if the receiver isinstalled under the dash.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem

Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
