Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

2000 Toyota Corolla SR 1598cc

Hi,

My speedo has stopped working and the engine light has come on - the temp gauge is fine so I'm not sure if the two things are connected. I've only had the car for a day so I'll be pretty miffed if I have to haul it in for a full service - hoping there might be a an alternative trick or two I can try first?

Best,
Ian

    engine and oil light on in 2000 toyota corolla

×

1 Answer

If the code for the engine light is a Lien code:

Common problem is the Mass Air Flow sensor. Go to your local auto parts store and get a spray solvent to spray right past the air filter.
This will sometimes correct the engine light. Otherwise you may have to replace the MAF.
Do not replace the Catalytic Converter or the O2 sesors. Some mechanics may try to do this, as it is generally the problem on other vehicles. However, on this model Corolla, it is generally not the case.

The oil light is a low pressure warning. Either you need more oil, or a new oil pump.

Hello, I have a 2000 corolla and it starts up fine runs good up to the point it heats up to normal operating temp and it stalls out and is very hard to start back up, sometimes will not start back up!


The way I see you have temperature problem. Toyota use two temp.sensors. One for you gauge and one for the computer. If the sensor is bad will tell the computer temp.of -40°F. The injectors will spray to much fuel and flut the engine. Using advance scan tool monitor the live data if the computer sensor rise the temp.wile engine running.
Good Luck

I HAVE A 2000 Toyota Corolla CE IT SAY IT HOT BUT ITS NOT WHAT CAN IT BE


low on coolant - steam going across the sensor instead of coolant will give a false reading. bad temp gauge sensor or a bad gauge and also does it go straight to hot as soon as you start the car when it is cold like first thing in the morning or does it gradually start climbing and will it run hotter or cooler when ac is on or when stopped or going down the road. let me know and give more info hope this helped.

WHILE DRIVING OVER BUMPS TACH, SPEEDO,TEMP GAUGE, STOP WORKING, BATTERY WARNING LIGHT COMES ON ANY IDEA WHAT IS HAPPENING?


This sounds like a bad connection on the battery. Check that both cables are tight and not corroded especially the ground.

Find the temperature sensor(usually around the thermostat housing)'disconnect connector and ground it with a test light. Observe the inside gauge. It should slowly go up. If so, change sensor. Do the same for the fuel gauge located on the fuel tank. If gauge move to fill as you groung the sending unit wire, change sending unit. Test the right wire. Ask for further assistance.
