If I change the ecm, does it need to be programmed? I'm purchasing a new one from a local parts store and have never done one.

Late 95 into 96 is when the changed from an ecm that had a replaceable (prom) to one that was made into the computer that would have to be programmed.Check you original ecm for a plate covering a removeable prom if it has one swap it into the new one and your good to go If not you will need to get the new one programmed

Installing a new PCM on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe

The new PCM on these has to be programmed either by the people that built it or by someone who has the capability to reprogram it [usually a dealership]. The computer can be programmed before it is installed and usually they'll need the VIN#, mileage, etc to do this properly. I don't believe the vehicle will run if you put in an unprogrammed PCM. It's very rare for one of these PCM's to fail so make sure that you haven't overlooked some other problem that is mimicing a bad ECM before ordering one as they are quite expensive.

I have received a Toyota Corolla 2007 maintenance code P2716 and wonder what this means?

Hello; welcome to FixYa.

The P-2716 code you speak of is a problem in the logic (programming) in the car's Computer, or ECM.

Toyota is aware of this issue, and have issued a Technical Service Bulletin regarding that DTC Code; P-2716.

If your car is under 80,000 miles, Toyota will replace the ECM for you, for FREE. The ECM has an 8-year/80,000 mile warranty.

We here at FxYa hope this helps you out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!
