Just read your info about Check Engine Light on, My car, 2001 Toyota Corolla with 53000km. get three error code, P0440-EVAP control Sys; P0441-EVAP Sys Purgeflow low; P0446-EVAP vent solenoid pro; These three code get back again and again after I reset each time.
Do you think I should replace the gas cap? it looks nothing wrong with it. BTW, I am going to take E-test soon. Is that will be ok if I just replace the gas cap? I am new driver. Thanks for your advice.

Please help me!! My battery light keeps coming on, and I recently had a tune up. Do you think it's bc I didn't replace the spark plugs? My alternator was checked recently in a tune up, no problems. The battery light was going on before the tune up, never mentioned it when I dropped off the car, they never said anything about my alternator when they did the tune up. Do you think it could be a fuse? 98 corolla with 51000 miles on it. No problems starting/driving the car. Btwn both my toyotas this past month both being dealership for repairs this last month I can't afford another error.

The plugs have nothing to do with the battery light. Is this the original battery?

If the $50 made you feel well, then it was worth the expense.
For that type of driving, any 5W30 oil with API: SL or SM certification should be good for 5000 miler OR (important) 6 months.
If you towed, raced, or lived in arctics my advice would be different. Enjoy your new car!
#296 of 574 1993 Corolla A/C question
Jun 27, 2006 (9:07 am)
I think the A/C is finally giving out on my 93 Corolla DX. I recall something about a change in A/C refrigerants in the mid to late 90s. If I need to get my A/C fixed, does it mean I need to replace the entire system because of the refrigerant change? What does that cost? Has anyone else gone through this? Thanks.

With the error codes you're getting, I'd start by replacing the gas cap first (you can't tell if it's bad by looking at it), if that doesn't fix it, then I'd go with a new tank bypass valve. Since your's is an '01, it is equipped with a purge valve, but that has a much lower failure rate then does the tank bypass valve. I would only consider replacing the purge valve if the gas cap or the TBV doesn't fix the problem.

no we have since replaced the battery and just had it tested. Do you think it is a faulty wire?

If I were you I would use the new Mobil 1 Extended Drain Interval Synthetic. Mobil says you can use it for 15,000 miles or 1 year whichever comes first. It's a bit expensive, about $6 per quart here in New York but you only have to change it once a year. I am using it in my 2003 Corolla along with a Mobil 1 Oil Filter and am quite satisfied.

Blowing smoke! Th fuel filter is in the gas tank and is not considered a serviceable item.
#301 of 574 What is 4 wheel brake service?
Aug 08, 2006 (5:46 pm)
Hello everyone! I hope someone can help me with this question. I have a 2005 Corolla (automatic) and I am leasing it. I was told by the dealership merchanic that they "recommend" me to do a 4 wheel brake service, which is rather costly. I don't see it on the service menu, which probably is not mandatory.
Question: what is it and is it necessary if I am just leasing the car? Thanks.
