1992 toyota corolla starter replacement

If you like doing your own repairs, I'd like to recommend having a Haynes service manual on hand; it will give you all the info you need to do home-based repairs:

We have a manual for each of our vehicles and even when a job is destined for a workshop, you can get a rough idea of how much labor it entails and therefore how much it should cost.

I need to replace the starter or the solenoid on a 1988 toyota corolla

You need to expand more on your statement. What do you want to know? How to replace the starter/solenoid? or should you replace it. Depending on the symptoms that you are getting like is the starter dragging when you turn it over or is it making a whining noise?
If it is dragging sluggishly then possibly after you have excluded the battery, the bushes(2) could be worn and is easilly replaced along with the four commutator brushes. If it is whining that could be due to the solenoid not engaging or possibly the bendix mechanism. Attach + 12 volts to the thin pigtail lead that comes of from the solenoid and attach the negative lead to the body of the starter, you should get a healthy kick response and looking inside the halfmoon open section of the front of the starter assy you should see the engaging gear kick to the front. Certain Toyota Corolla models have 2 bolts that mates the starter to the gearbox and others have 3 bolts. I have also found that in some cases the earthing band that goes from the negative pole of the battery to the chassis of the car and the engine sometimes doesn't make a good contact either on the engine or body, check these out as well as that can lead to not enough current passing through for efficient cranking.

Hi i have a 1988 toyota corolla that keeps on stalling i dont know whats going on and dont know what to fix

I had a similar problem, the middle cylinders- both compression was low. The Expert Mechanic told me that the valves have to be replaced. So the Head was opened and the valves were checked and they wer allright. The the Head was machined, and the PISTON rings were replaced. Now the vehicle runs good. This might help.
So when you get to replace the valves, be ready for the pistons/ or piston rings. cost about 600 dollars in all.

Removing starter from toyota corolla 1998

No. Removal of the intake manifold is not an attractive option.
...That will cost you more time and money in the long run.
You will need to replace the intake manifold gasket, and several others.
