Because it does not need to be replaced. The prior generation Corollas (pre '98) had ones that needed (per owner's manual) to be replaced every 30 or 60k miles. Most cars are like this now, and so far it is not causing any problems for Toyota. I cannot recall ever reading or hearing any problems associated with this type of fuel filter system. Saves me $ and time, and does not decrease reliability. Obviously, I completely disagree that it is "crappy engineering." It is a Toyota, after all!

My driver's side front window works intermittently on my '99 Corolla. Is there an easy way to find out if it's the switch or the window motor that's bad? I'd like to replace the bad part myself, but I don't know how to determine which part is bad. Since either part is considered electrical, I probably wouldn't be able to return either part, and both of these parts are fairly expensive. Also, where is the best place to order these parts? Auto parts stores like Autozone and Advance Auto don't seem to carry these type of parts and getting them from the Toyota parts dept. is extremely expensive.

Does anyone know why the '06 Corolla has 4hp less that the '05?
Here's the reason for my question: My '05 (20K Miles) is having the "INTERMITTENT NO START CONDITION ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 1ZZ-FE ENGINE" (TSB# 01805). If I take my car in to fix the prob and they (Toyota Dealer) reprogram the computer to '06 specs, will my car lose those 4hp?
Also, has anyone had any problem with slippage from 1-2 on the automatics? Thanks

My 2001 Corolla dashboard light that lights up the speedometer just went out--it's dificult to read the speedometer now. I want to know if anyone can tell me how to fix it.

I'm having the same problem on my 2001 Corolla. Did you receive any information on how to fix the problem?

Thanks for the explanation. It is annoying though.

Is it possible to connect a MP3 to the radio/cd (Creative, no IPOD, through the cd changer socket? is there an aftermarket device?

Dec 15, 2005 (4:11 pm)
The hp ratings of many Japanese cars were reduced for the '06 model year because of a change in the way the SAE [Society of Automotive Engineers] measures horsepower. Previous guidelines allowed testing the engine with no accessories running, and under conditions that encouraged a lot of optimistic numbers. The Japanese seemed most affected by the new procedures. Many American cars actually "gained" hp.
In every case, there is nothing really new - the engines produce the same power they did last year, but this is a lower number under the new testing guidelines. The '06s haven't "lost" anything - it just wasn't there in the first place.
Having the TSB applied to your car will change nothing in regard to its power output.
#2250 of 3856 05 Corolla Rattling,Shaking noises above 40 mph, HELP!!
Dec 15, 2005 (6:22 pm)
I just bought an 05 Toyota Carolla with 3,500 miles on it. I was going on a long drive and after about 2 hours i first started hearing rattling sounds from the middle of the car. The sound was something like when you put a small stone in a moving fan. At first it was not that loud or prominent but 20 mins later loud rattling and heavy vibration sound started coming from the driver side. It sounded like the whole engine was vibrating up and down. When i would slow down below 40 mph the noise would go away but when as i would speed up and go around 60-70 mph the sound just gets alot louder. Also this morning the car would not start because for some reason the battery was dead, so i was able to fix it after a jump. I recently got an oil change done on the car, i'm not sure if that has anything to do with the weird noises. Please help!!! Any suggestion/help will be appreciated. Thank You

Take back to dealer, under warranty. Why was it sold with so low miles?? I would definitely be suspicious, considering it is used.
