Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Last night after coming off the interstate i made a sort of hard left then went to accellerate. Thats when i noticed a dramatic loss of initial power and loud engine noise. The engine noise persisted until i stopped and has not went away. I know this car to burn lots of oil and its been long over due for a filter change. I say this considering the car kind of changes its own oil by how much it goes through. I check the oil. of course low. I add oil this does not change the noise. It has changed the noise when this has happened before. However the noise has never been this loud. Now the engine oil light flickers or is on and occasionally off. The noise and loss of power seem to persist.

the car's computer needs to relearn it's correct idle allow to run for several minutes and the computer's RAM will return and idle will be fine. On the automatic transmission it may take several miles of driving to shift normally as the computer learns and adapts. Loss of battery voltage can cause all sorts of running problems until this happens.

Fixer uper 89 lx 5.0 trouble when hot

That could be coming from a couple of places. first thing I would do if it is an automatic tranny, replace the tranny filter and flush the fluid. If that is not it, check the intake/exhaust manifold gaskets. One of these could have rotten out from old age. Finally, if once the engine heats up, if the oil pressure drops dramatically once the engine is warmed up, rod bearings and main bearings have gone out on it.
