Question about Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

After a long trip my car, a 1997 Toyota Corolla, seems to be revving or bucking when I drive. We were in Colorado so there was a lot of hard uphill climbs at times. I notice it most when I let off the gas and slow to a stop. It's a mild sensation but I still noticed it right away. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

SOURCE: Clickin sound, bad turns, slow acceleration, and abs

Hello there,
Well good news! There is a fix for everything. First we will start with the clicking in the column. This is common and is one of two things.
1-the airbag clock spring is defective. Not an easy job but totaly doable with the right guidence and an fairly inexpensive tool. You will need to remove the air bag in the column but you will save if you do it yourself.
2-The turn signal cancelation pawl and or cam screws backed out. This in turn will rub on the lower side of the clock spring and the clicking would be the head of the screws rubbing on the rigges on the bottom of the clock spring. Remove the airbag and steering wheel. Remove the retainig clip on the clock spring and remove the clock spring. Inspect the screws holding down the turn signal cancelation cam.
Ok and for the ABS could be multipule problems. Your truck is equiped with OBD 2. Is there an check engine light, ABS light, or a brake light on in the insturment cluster? You may have a series of componding problems. The brakes could be dragging created by a defective caliper or wheel cyl. Or it could be a simple fuse related problem in the ABS circuit. The fuse is typicly located under the hood in the engine compartment and labled ABS in the fuse panel. If I can be of anymore assistance let me know.

SOURCE: 30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start

It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

SOURCE: toyota corolla 1996 radiator fan does not works

If you follow the wires from the fan, you will notice a square box which is called a relay. These relays have a tendency to fail. It may need to be replaced. You can test the resistance of the relay with an ohmmeter or multi-meter. If the relay is good, either the fan motor or sensor is shot.

SOURCE: metallic rattle during acceleration

If its when there's strain on your powertrain and not when you hit a certain RPM, have a mechanic check the crankshaft bearings. Usually sounds like a chain being pulled through your engine.
