Replacement of the fuel pump is very easy. Here is what you need to do:
Pull uup on the front edge of the rear seat bottom.
Lift & remove the rear seat bottom.
Locate & unbolt the inspection cover on the rear floor.
Disconnect the wire harness at the connector.
Remove the tubes going to the sending unit/fuel pump
Unbolt the 8 or 9 bolts that hoolds the unit onto the top of the tank;
Pull the entire assembly up & out.
Quite easy. Hope this helps; and, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Rule 1 ....WD40 is non-flammable. It used to be an effective starter spray for diesels. Unfortunately it now contains a fire retardant to prevent accidents....so the rev you were looking for wont arrive.
It does work well with easy-start/ether though.
I suspect you found a vacuum leak and sucked WD40 into the intake....If u think u did you'll need to clean your plugs.
A strobe lamp to check the spark would be a good idea. Also if a lil squirt (VERY LITTLE) of easy start doesnt produce at least a backfire, your spark is out.

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

i had the same codes and the same "bucking" on my 05 Corrolla. I had my mechanic replace the solenoid (not cheap) and the light stayed on & the codes were the same. He thought my computer needed to be reflashed after the fix. I took it to Toyota where they ended up switching out the computer...free of charge.
Apparently 05 Corrollas have a "bulletin" on the faulty computers. they cause the check engine lights to light up & give those readings. It is not a recall because it is not a safety issue.
