Question about Toyota Corolla

Metal on metal noise

I own a 94 toyota corolla manual transmision. car is making a noise that sound very similar to the metal on metal noise that brakes make when they are going bad but it is not the brakes. Brakes were recently replaced along with all the brake lines. also, the noise stops when the clutch is pushed in and starts again when i let out on the clutch. the noise is loudest when in 1st gear and lessens as i accelerate. any advise appreciated.

most likely the throw out bearing is at fault. when you push the clutch a spinning bearing pushes the clutch plate away from the flywheel disengaging trans so you can switch gears. the transmission has to come away from the engine to fix it.

SOURCE: 1998 Toyota Corolla: New Brakes but still Grinding sound

I would look for rust on the back side of the rotors; this is a very common problem that will duplicate the noises that you describe.

SOURCE: Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

Sounds like you will have to bleed your brakes again, but thats not the problem og hard brake peddle, need to check your power brake booster, sit right in back of master cylinder, check make sure it has vacum going to it, also to test it with engine off, press on brake peddle three time, then state engine with foot on peddle, peddle should go down a few inches, also with engine of peddle should feel soft for three pumps, if you have none of this , power brake booster is bad.

2007 Toyota Corolla - Problem with front brake pads making loud noises. Should we be using Metallic or Ceramic brake pads?

The choice in pads will be totally up to you. The ceramic pads offer extended life, with little to no brake dust, where the metallic pads are just the opposite. I would recommend that you use ceramic pads, you will get your money's worth out of them.

I have a 1995 Toyota corolla with 149k miles on a 2.2l 4 cylinder fuel injected motor. The motor makes a sound like that of a metal spoon dropped down a garbage disposal. The motor still has a good oil...

As far as I know, Toyota Corollas have an overhead cam engine. Therefore it has no pushrods.
I'd say by how you describe it, that you have a bad bendix in the starter motor and it is making the grinding noise against the teeth on the flywheel.
