Question about Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

In my toyota corolla 2003 of 50 litres petrol capacity in the fuel guage thre are totally 17 lines including 4 thick lines. There are no lines in between E and 1st thick line. Similarly there are no lines beween F and the last thick line. Between 1st thick line and 2nd thick line there are only 2 thin lines. However between the 2nd thick line and 3rd thick line there are 4 thin lines and even between 3rd thick line and 4th thick line there are 4 thin lines and again between the 4th thick line and 5th thick line there are 2 lines. It is totally confusing to have an idea about the quantum of available petrol in the car. Whether the needle at 2nd thick line indicates quarter tank that is 12.5 litres? When the needle was at the 2nd thick line I had put 20 litres petrol. The needle stood just one line after the 2nd thick line. Whether the fellow who put 20 litres petrol inserting the nozzle directly in the petrol tank has done some tricks? Because

Hello Dorai,

The good news is the sender is only about $30
(US Dollars)...
http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/toyota,2003,corolla,1.8l+l4,1432914,fuel+&+air,fuel+sending+unit,4436

The bad news is NO mention of replacement gauges... (new)

PLUS... (of course) we only speak "Gallons" here...
(unless we are talking about wines).

Nevertheless the best thing to do is figure out which end has the issue and REPAIR IT... (me thinks).

The fuel level sensor in the tank is not linear, meaning it doesn't have the same equally spaced indication between E and F . The shape of the tank has a lot to do with the reading also. The needle will move more rapidly when the tank is below 1/2 full. When the low fuel light comes on there should be almost 3 gallons left in the tank 2 1/2 which are usable.

SOURCE: truck wont move in gear [manual trans] why?

push the clutch pedal all the way and see if the slave cylinder pushrod is going out at least an inch, if not replace the slave cylinder, if it does goes out, sad to say but you have problem somewhere else inside your clutch assembly

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.

Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

My 1.6 gl, the feul gauge light stays on


The Low Fuel Light should only start to operate when there is less than 1 Gallon / 4.5 Litres in the fuel tank. For the light to be on continuously would indicate a chafes wire in the woring loom contacting the body. Check around the area where the fuel guage is located in the top of the fuel tank. Access to it is though a removable inspection panel in the floor of the rear of the vehicle under the rear seat.

SPARK GAP FOR 1990 TOYOTA COROLLA I bought NGK G-POWER PLATINUM SPARK PLUGS Looking everywhere - I checked all the panels under the hood and I don't have a car manual for my 1990 4 cyl 1.6 litre 4-door...


Do you happen to have a hacksaw blade? The thickness of the hacksaw blade is equal to the clearance of the
spark plug contacts. You can put the hacksaw blade flat
between the contacts, and make the necessary adjustment. Then, start your engine. Send in your e-mail
so we will know.

Petrol smell from engine


I think you might be only intermittantly noticing it.
Check around the fuel injectors for signs of wetness as soon as you notice it again. Failure of the metal-plastic junctions is pretty common. Their expansion and contraction rates are different so eventually, the seal can fail.

Fuel Tank Capacity


i would guess 60 liters...

but the best way to know it is by really driving it with almost empty tank then make a full tank at the gas station and you would know the tank capacity...
