Changing oil is really easy and i do not know if you have done this before so i will walk you threw compleatly. step1 jack the vehicle up and support it with jackstands before you get underit.
Step 2. Get a good oil Drain pan
3. remove the plug on the bottom of the oil pan and drain the oil in to the drain Pan caution make sure engine is not hot as the oil will burn you severaly.
4. locat your oil filter and remove and alow do drain in drain pan
5 grab the new filter and put a light coat of oil on to the gasket and screw on to your engine as tight as you can by hand now grab the oil filter wrench and turn only 1/4 of a turn tighter.
6. install drain plug back into engine oil pan and tighten down with wrench.
7 fill engine with proper oil viscosity example 5w-30 and the proper amount both can be found in owners manual.
8. start engine and look for leaks if no leaks are presant take car of of jack stands and enjoy you Well done job
hope you find this usefull
please leave me a rating
Thank you

Should have to turn off the key, press the odometer reset button, while holding it down, turn ignition on, not starting the car, wait for the light to reset, or show counting down in the odometer.

SOURCE: 2005 toyota corolla ce maint. required need to know how to reset.

To reset the system. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off. If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla Radio fuse

Pg. 250 of your 2005 Owner's Manual shows the location of the Fuse Boxes. There is one under your hood on the driver's side and the other is under the dash just to the left of steering wheel. Pg 272, will show you how to replace the fuses. Pg. 286-287 gives a diagram and description of each fuse and what part of the electrical system it enables.
This portion of the electrical system correspondeds to the fuse in position 32 on pg. 287 of the manual.
Your going to have to get on your back with a flashlight and open up the fuse box under the dash by the steering wheel. The lid of the fuse box shows the positions of the fuse and their amperage rating. Like I said, replace the fuse in postion 32 (15 Amp). There is a spare 15 Amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood (easy to get to, see the diagrams in the owner's manual). There is also a fuse puller tool next to the spare fuses.

SOURCE: How do I remove brake drum on 2005 toyota corolla

Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.

If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.

If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

WHAT'S NORMALLY THE CAUSE TO BREAK AN OIL PAN FOR TOYOTA COROLLA CE 2005


Bring it to a mechanic different than the one who gave you that advice. I suspect that the plug gasket is leaking. It is possible that you need a new oil pan if you hit it with something like a rock or driving over a curb. Again a mechanic can inspect it and tell you right away. The dealer oil changes have nothing to do with this.

Maintenance required light blinks every time i turn on my toyota corolla 2005 and i had oil changed at toyota service station?


Hi, it is possible it may require other schedualed services and you are being reminded. However to reset for the oil change you need to have the key off. press and hold down the milage trip reset button and turn the key on. After five seconds the odometer reads "0000000" and the light goes off. If this does not reset then let me know. There is a longer procedure for reseting the other maint services required.

2005 toyota corolla motor oil capacity?


if you have a 1ZZ engine

4.2 quarts, 4.4 quarts with oil filter change

if you have the 2ZZ engine (XRS model) it is

4.4 quarts, 4.6 quarts with oil filter change

NOTE these are updated capacities that reflect changes identified in TSB: TSB-0134-08 issued July 15, 2008.
Your owners manual will reflect a lesser quantity that Toyota has since revised.

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
