Toyota Cars & Trucks - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Most vehicles have these simply bolted into place but getting to them is the fun part. You will need to remove the the plastic trim the wiper arms stick out through. These are normally held in place with simple plastic push clips that you will need to 'pop' out. Some of these clips need the centre pin lifted out to make them easier to remove. They are not expensive and reasonably easy to get replacements for so if you break some it isn't a big issue. You might also need to remove the wiper arms to do this. They are held on with a single nut which is under a 'pop' off or a swing up cover. They should pull off BUT they will be on very tight and a pain to get off. I recommend you leave the nut on loosely 2 or 3 turns so the wiper arm doesn't smack you in the face when it suddenly comes loose.
You might need a small wooden block against the bodywork to lever against. DO NOT lever against the windscreen glass!! Windscreens are expensive!!! The wiper arm assembly should then just unbolt. Disconnect the wire connector and lift it out.
Like any job on a car this will cost you the skin off at least one knuckle!

seeing that this was 10 years ago... and you most likely either fixed the issue, or sold the car i will give it a go, since i currently own a 1986 Toyota Corolla Sedan (5 speed) --

the problem can range from blown fuses on the Positive terminal post of the battery; to it not making good connection with the battery posts ( i would Clean them, to rule out poor contact surface )

If the car lights up, but nothing happens when you turn the key to engage the starter motor, either the starter has gone bad, or the battery is low.

If you hear the starter Click, you don't have enough power to turn it.

If you place a booster pack on it, and it still does the same thing, it's shot. ( The starter)

If it can turn over, but doesn't fire, then it's probably spark plugs.

(Press the gas peddle about 5 - 6 times or as needed)
( This send small spurts of gas into the manifold, below the carb. Makes it easier to start on cold day. or if has been sitting for a long time. )

if it's not doing anything, then you may need to see if it's pumping fuel from the gas tank into the carb. -- This can also be caused from a clogged fuel filter.

Lots of possibilities. You may have a vacuum leak, allowing extra air into your engine. Cracked hoses or even a crack in the main intake hose from the air filter can cause this code. Also possible that you aren’t getting enough fuel to run a balanced air fuel ratio. Could be a plugged fuel filter, pump failing, failing fuel pressure regulator as well. Or, it’s possible that your oxygen sensor is worn out and lying to the computer altogether. Also leaks in the exhaust system between the engine and oxygen sensor can set this code as well.

Check to see if there are any restrictions in the door track. If the sensors feel any resistance they will stop movement or reverse it for safety reasons. There could also be loose connections in the door wiring loom.

i would suggest having a certified mechanic thru a dealer do it. because if you mess it up and then get into accident it will be your fault liability issue

An issue has been detected, usually due to low refrigerant in the system due to a leak.

Check fuses in main fuse box!

I do not have a short cut way to replace the valve. The head must come off.

Toyota Cars &... | Answered on May 29, 2020


Which part did you replace? Try checking the following areas.
  • A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled.
  • There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.
  • Possible cracked vacuum or PCV line/connection Faulty or stuck open PCV valve.
  • Failed or faulty oxygen sensor (bank 1, sensor 1) Sticking/plugged or failed fuel injector.
  • Low fuel pressure (possible plugged/dirty fuel filter!) Exhaust leak between engine and first oxygen sensor

buy the kit and follow the directions in it

The main battery is under the seat!
The vehicle cannot function without a main battery!

Toyota Cars &... | Answered on May 28, 2020


If belt or electrical motor drive, check the power steering pump drive.
