The simple answer is, there is not much point in doing so. The HP you could add will be hardly noticable. But if you wish so than: sports air filter, one of those coney ones, they do increase airflow so add a few HP. To make full use of that extra flow you'd need to unchoke the other end- sports exhaust. If you are really commited then you can take the engine apart and give it a good clean. Essential part here is porting and polishing intake manifold- again to increase the flow.
But- is it really worth doing that to old toyota? Remember- she's grandma now ;-) I'd be enjoying the ride with the car of the age where most of it's competitors are long gone to the heaven of scrapyard and memories. You've got a masterpiece of a car. Its still on the road because Japanese engineers have created it to last. Start making modifications and you'll kill their efforts. Cheers

If Biggy1 has described it right, I think when you remove the WIRE to the spark plug ( not the plug itself ) and oil jumps out, there is a cylindrical seal that needs replacing and one does not need to even remove the cylinder head.
I have the same problem with my corolla. On the other hand if Biggy meant when removing the SPARK PLUG oil was on the contacts....

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: 2002 toyota corolla power windows stop working

Probably a resetting circuit breaker in the system. Some are reset when they cool off, others when keyed off. Must be something drawing too much current, or circuit breaker getting weak. Usual causes of drawing too much current in your case would be power window motors. With that said, there are some things you can try to lessen the load on the circuit such as spraying silicone down sides where felt is for easier window movement. Those areas get dried out and tend to grip glass as it's going up & down causing extra load on motor. I've also had to resort to removing door panels & spraying grease on tracks & guides inside door, to help. try silicone down sides first and see if it helps. Also make note if one window seems to cause it more than another, that gives you a good one to start on.

1995 toyota corolla, car will not turn over, hs power and wants to turn over, but does not


While the engine is cold, try starting it and giving a little gas while you start it. If it starts, release your foot and see if it keeps running. If it stalls out, start it again (by giving a little gas again) and then keep your foot on the gas slightly to keep it from going to it's normal idle. Once the engine is warmed up, let off the gas and see if it stays running again. If it does then you need to clean/reaplace the IAC valve that is on the throttle body.

If you can, remove it and clean it out with carb cleaner (like B-12) and an old toothbrush. It could save you some money from having to replace it.

1990 Corolla. None of Power windows operate from master switch at driver's door, or from local switches at each door itself. Cannot find fuse labeled for power windows (ie PW). All fuses read good


Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

The most common cause of this issue is a bad master switch on the driver side door. Another common cause is a broken power wire that powers up the master switch. CHeck the wries on the connector of the master switch with a 12 vlt DC testlight, with the key on. If you have power, the wire is good, and the switch is probably bad.

The check engine light won`t come on toyota corolla 1990 its has a 15 amp fuse and it broke. When I change it and latter the fuse is broke again the fuse control EFI.I think is the ignition or any other...


Like you metnion, sounds like a short circuit somewhere.

I would take it to a mechanic or maybe local auto parts store that can run a scanner and possibly give you a code to pinpoint the problem.
Shorts are tricky to diagnose.

If you can gather a little more info, also how long before the fuse blows?

Do you happen to have a hacksaw blade? The thickness of the hacksaw blade is equal to the clearance of the
spark plug contacts. You can put the hacksaw blade flat
between the contacts, and make the necessary adjustment. Then, start your engine. Send in your e-mail
so we will know.
