    Hi Jocelyn, I need to better understand a couple of things: 'dashboard power engine' do you mean the check engine light, or service engine light? Also, 'engine..start hi and low temperature' so do you mean the engine temperature gauge is going up and down as you drive? Your oil and oil filter should be changed every 3 to 4 thousand miles, or twice a year, whichever comes 1st, although I don't think it has anything to do with your current problem.

I am wondering if this is a faulty temperature switch or cooling fan switch. They control the cooling fan operation, and could explain the up and down of the temperature gauge if not working properly.

    Hi, let me know what the garage says, and would appreciate holding off on rating until you know the outcome. Hopefully, I'll do better than 'thanks for trying'!!

  • Curt Downs Jan 15, 2009

    Hello Jocelyn, it might be possible that your 1.5 engine shares some (or hopefully all) of the components of the 1.6 engine available here. The only way to know, would be to compare the old parts to new for the 1.6 as you have said. Let me do some more research to see if I can find the location of the parts on the engine.

    Sorry for delay, have been away, can't find anymore info, but would recommend you contact Toyota Ed at this fixya site, he is amazing, and knows all about toyotas, very smart guy. Let me know what happens, or if I can help otherwise.

Toyota corolla 2000 japan... p/s appearing on dash board and then the steering is difficult to turn and also the speed can't go above 80km/h

Check whether your power steering system is working with belt and the belt probably split and it doesn't work. If it is electronic steering controlled,the is a different story,check first what is it and if is the second option then you need a qualified mechanic to help. Reason of dropping the speed to 80km/h is like the vehicle got into safe mode to drive it slowly to an authorized garage for repair.

Well, i just bought a toyota corolla 91, i dont know if it's xl, xe or what, the owner can't tell it either, she was the second owner... anyway the engine is still in good running...

To find out the model, the easiest solution is to locate the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) located in several locations, the easiest being the dashboard and the driver side door post. You would then enter the VIN onto a site such as CARFAX, which would also detail any accidents etc. reported on the car. I would recommend a mechanic for your other problems. Good luck!
