You can have the engine compression checked. if the oil has been changed regularly, it should be at least 150 psi on all cylinders, with less than 10 psi difference. between them. the engine vacuum can be checked as well, it should be at least 13 at the intake manifold. good luck, hope this helps!

The general rule is to change your oil and filter every 3000 miles, some heavy duty oils say 5000 miles. If you want to be sure go 3000 miles, change oil and filter and clean or replace your air filter and your car should last a long time.

I have a 2002 Toyota Corolla.It has 26,340 miles and I never changed the transmission oil.Please let me know what I should do. In a conversation I had with a friend he told me it should has been changed...


I'm not sure about changing it every 25,000 miles. Most manufacturer's have a span of 50,000 to 80,000 miles. newer cars could be different but you should be able to find that information in your owner's manual. There should be a section in there that deals with lubrication and maintenance schedules. It's usually a table design, just read down until you see trans fluid and go cross to see the intervals. If you don't have the owner's manual then a call to the service department at the dealer will provide the info you need.

Having said that, 10 years is a long time to go without changing the oil. Oil degrades over time and while you may be below the mileage for the oil change you have certainly gone past the life span of the oil. A lot of transmission failures can be triggered by too old transmission oil. I would look at getting it done in the near future. There should also be a filter in there. Replace it as well. Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 toyota corolla automatic 1.8 with 109,000 miles. I replaced the spark plugs, oxygen sensor, air filter, gas cap, changed the oil, put new tires on, emptied the trunk and I still get 21-23...


Instead of an EGR valve you have variable timing on your cam shaft. I would talk to a Toyota dealer. There may be a service bulletin about replacing the ECM (control box) for the variable cam timing which would effect the fuel economy of your vehicle the same way a stuck or plugged EGR valve would.

How frequently are you supposed to change the oil and filter on a 91 Toyota Corolla?


OEM probably says 5000 miles, but keeping it in good condition means trying to stay close to 3000 mile changes-it's old, be nice to it!

The check Maintenance Required light came on my 2006 Corolla about a year and a half ago. I checked the manual; it indicated that the oil should be changed. Even though I was nowhere close to a scheduled...


The oil light is reset by the tech on each service. It will not go off by itself. As far as the check engine light goes you now have a code stored and you will need to get it before we can begin to diagnose. Only thing you can do is make sure the gas cap is on and the seal is no cracked or distorted. This could set a code
