Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

I am thinking about buying a 1996 Toyota Corolla sedan with 71,000 miles. In negotiating the price, I am concerned because it has the original TIMING BELT and while the front disc brakes were changed the rear Drum brakes. have 71,000 miles on them. Toyota recommends TIMING Belt change at 60,000 MILES [THE CAR IS NOW 13 YEARS OLD]? How long to Rear DRUM brakes last - going on 71,000! Any quotes on replacement/repair costs will be appreciated. Thanks, Michael

Well it realy depents on if the car was taken care of about the belt cvheck and see if theres any cracks at all on it if not then see if theres more then a half a inch play on it if not then you don't need to replace it and check it every 3 months or if you start to haer a screaming nosie then it's time to replace that about the rear drums that also depends on if the car was taken care of what i mean is are the mile hwy or citie if hwy then you should beable to get buy for know but should start thinking about replacing them in about 3 to 6 months if city miles then you should replace them with in 2 to 3 months or if you hear grinding noises coming from the rear

Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.

Bad ignition coil. Borrow a known good distributor to swap with yours, and if the problem goes away you'll know that's what it was. The ignition coil is inside the distributor body and can be easily replaced.
