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.

Increasingly persistent tapping noise coming from cam sprocket area on 2005 2.4L toyota engine. New oil, new VVTI actuator,


It could be caused by the oil control valve, it's located on the side of the cylinder head, the vvti actuator is the gear on the front of the camshaft, if it was replaced try replacing the VVTi oil control valve. It can also be caused by a worn chain tensioner.

2005 Toyota Corolla 1400 vvti. Replaced timing chain. Now, when it starts why is it very noisy?


If you have a lot of chatter coming from the timing cover area, it could mean that the chain guides were left loose or that the VVT actuator plunger was not released when re-installed or it may have jammed and is not able to keep tension on the chain.
