Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I just changed the engine in my Corolla and it's idling rough and sounds bad.

Hi, the engine in my 2005 Toyota Corolla overheated twice, it has the 1400 4ZZ vvti engine in it. This time it were not be repaired it rcos the head could not be skimmed and there was excessive damage to the sub assembly. We decided to purchase a second hand engine and fit it, the engine starts but it very noisy initially, the only time the clunky noise lessened is when I revved the car passed 2000 rpm and when I then releases the accelerator pedal the idling becomes extremely erratic, hunting and eventually stutters and the engine dies. I'm not too sure if all my piping is connected properly. Where can I download a free workshop manual for the car

Sounds like you have not connected the wiring correctly, don't think there are any free manuals, you could ask in the toyota owners club.

Check and clean the idle control valve and the air passages it controls. Scan for possible trouble codes. If you disconnect the battery, any possible trouble codes will be erased.

2005 Toyota Corolla check engine light on.Fault code P2716,undefined reading.What does this mean?

Could mean there is one fault causing many faults, example, Air mass sensor, this can cause rough idle and over fuelling so the code reader will just send it back with undefined as there are to many faults to identify as the cause.

Most likely it will be a air fault so check the air sensor first, try cleaning it with carb cleaner, sometimes works. If not get back to me could be 2 other things. although the car will not drive very well if it is any of the other 2.

Sounds like you need the updated engine computer for harsh shifting. Look up under the glove box at the computer. Number should be 89661-02K21 if not, you need the update. It is an 8/80 warranty item.
