Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla

Woouumm Woouumm noise

I tested a 2005 Corolla S (16,660 K miles) and when the speed was between 50-60 MPH a woouumm woouumm kind of noise started (sometimes it seemed to be in the front sometimes from the rear) and after 60 MPH the woouumm woouumm becomes a regular woouumm, hardly noticeable due to the engine rev up and increased outside noise. Since the car had the original tires and the front ones were kind worn out, and due to the low mileage, I decided to buy the car. After several months I installed new tires but the woouumm woouumm still exists. The car behaves beautifully at road speeds but when I reach the 95-100 MPH there is a slight vibration in the steering wheel. My first impression was that the woouumm woouumm noise was from the bearings (front or rear ones), but since the car still has 29,000 miles and seems strange that a relatively new car already has bearing problems. I have checked the front axles and boots and they seem OK. What is your opinion?

Check the right side engine mount ASAP!
Call the dealer and give them the VIN number.

There is a new TOYOTA part no. 123052-0D120 to address this problem.

The old design on 05 and 06 has the noise problem.

In order to pin point the problem I will need the VIN number.

Please post it and I will follow up on it.

    1NXBR32E65Z451275 - My 2005 Corolla drives loud, almost like a muffler problem, most loud from 50 to 80 mph and increasingly loud to the point where the radio has to be all the way up in order to hear it.

I have a thumping noise under my car. I thought maybe it was the cv joint but it does not make the noise when i turn only going straight. Appyling brakes does not effect the noise. Seems as thought the...


Without testing the vehicle myself, I would guess it may be the drums (rear brakes) are out of round. If you have replaced them with after market they have likey come from the factory out of round.
The other simple answer is that you have cord seperation in the tires.

Does the steering wheel shake/wobble between 5-15 MPH? If so, the tires have cord/casing issues.

More info would be helpful.

Heavy steering on 2005 corolla automatic


No electric control.
If no abnormal noises or feel from power steering system, no leaks, etc, I would assume it normal. Road feel should improve with speed, but this is really dependent on what you've been accustomed to.

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.

Weird Sound while in motion


Hi,

To my knowledge, the only possible source of any growl (noise) underneath the car towards the center or rear would be the exhaust pipe after the converter before the muffler. Often they use rubber dougnuts as hanger support. A loose or broken support would significantly misalign thie exhaust pipe enough to cause vibration or wind induced noise.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
