Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla

2001(and earlier) Toyota Corolla Traction Problems

I have had 2 Toyota Corollas with 4 sets of tires, and yet every time I try to enter a highway on wet or snowy pavement the wheels spin for about 10-25 seconds, so I have to wait until there is no traffic and then ease into the road at about 5 mph to avoid this. I spoke with several other Corolla owners who have the same problem. Is there anything that can be done to avoid this?

    I put new tires on the car in May 2004, and the problem has persisted to this day in snow, rain, or just slightly wet pavement. It also happened with my 1994 Corolla with the new set I put on after buying it used. It has nothing to do with the amount of tread on the tire. If you have to get on a highway from a complete stop, especially if you have to make a right turn from a stop sign, then the car's wheels spin for 5-20 seconds before it catches the road.

Do you have winters on? Check how much tread is left on your tires or get somebody at a tire shop to check. My old car would do that and it was because I had barely any tread left on my tires. I just bought an older corolla and haven't had any problems with traction yet. I think it has fairly new blizzak winters on it.

I bought 4 tires at the same time, just had them rotated and was told that the front tires have more traction on them now than the back and that they shouldn't of rotated them. On a 2001 Chevy Cavalier...


You want the tires with deeper tread on the front of the car. As you drive, being front wheel drive the front tires do all the work, the rears are just along for the ride so the drive tires will wear down twice as fast. About ever 6000 - 8000 miles, you will need to rotate the tires to keep all 4 wearing evenly

I have a 2001 toyota corolla and I am wondering if a wheel from a voltswagon golf with 4 wheel studs would fit my toyota corolla with 4 wheel studs? Pleas if you can give me an detailed answer thank you


The VW wheels measure 14x6 57.1 and your corolla wheels are 14x5.5 54.1, the vw wheels are 1/2" wider but as long as you use the proper size tires for your corolla you wont run into any problems. also the bolt patterns will match they are both 4x100.

2001 Toyota Corolla LE 4 door rear axle noise I believe


First thing I would do is to get a chassis lube job. Many places that do oil changes will also do a chassis lube for you at the same time. The axle bearings can get dry and do require lubrication. If left to long without a lube job, pits can form inside the bearing and will require replacement.

'95 Corolla Engine Question


An engine from another Corolla up to 1997 will fit. There are 2 engines though. 4A-fe (1.6L) or a 7A-fe (1.8L) They look similar but run different Engine managment computers. The 4A-fe uses a 3spd auto trans and the 7A-fe uses a 4spd auto trans. Also some of the wiring may be different.
Hope this helps.

Pushed acceleration on freeway to 50-70 miles does not run smooth and shakes.


Could be any number of things, lets eliminate the transmission. Put the car in park and throttle the engine, is it snappy then? Or does it slowly rev up? If it still runs funny or isn't snappy, the tranny is not the problem. So it could be, weak fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or a ditributor problem. Could be a sensor to, but I've had 4 corollas and have never had a MAF sensor or others go out yet. I have had problems with the items I listed.
