#3110 of 3858 Engine check light stays on
Apr 28, 2008 (12:53 pm)
still the problem is on my 1995 Toyota Corolla. Engine check light stays on for
no reason. Mechanic checked everything and all him is code "99" which
he is not sure what it means? Will anyone out there would know what that code mean?
Also, just replaced the crank sensor/water pump and belt. Sometimes, car jerked and stall. Pls. tell me what's causing to do that and how to solve the problem. No money to take to dealer for check up nor repair. Pls. help.. Any help or advise to resolve the problem is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Go by Auto Zone, Pep-Boys, someplace like that and buy a Haynes shop manual for that car...should cost around 16.95, and it will explain everything, and has pictures.

#3113 of 3858 93 corolla transmission intermitent shifting problems
May 08, 2008 (7:20 pm)
I have a 93 corolla that the OD light blinks on and off intermitently and sometimes it will not shift to the higher gears. The code tells me that it is the vehicle speed sensor. I have replaced this with no luck. Sometime the engine light comes on as well. This car has 307,000 miles on it and it still gets 30+ mpg, so most of the time it runs well. Any help would be great!

does anyone know if Qhorsepower oil really works well in adding horsepower to an 89 corolla?

I have the same thing going on with my 2001 GEO Prizm with 65,000 miles. Pretty quiet at neutral and 1st. 2nd gear gets louder and 3-5 is loud with a grinding type noise. started about 3 months ago. CLutch seems fine.

No you can't get horsepower out of oil. Qhorsepower is just another synthetic oil. Might be a great product but it doesn't have any horsepower in it.
I guess if you froze your engine with 40W in it, and then drained that and put in synthetic oil, yes your engine would, for the first few minutes, spin easier with the synthetic and produce more of its own available horsepower on a dyno. I have experienced easier start-ups in cold weather with synthetics.

I agree...oil does not add horsepower, but it does reduce friction. And, synthetic is a better lubricant than traditional oil, and due to that, you may actually see a slight increase in MPG. Also, synthetic oil is more moisture resistant, which can have a positive effect if you take primarily short drives (15 miles or less).The other good quality about synthetic oil is that you can extend the periods between oil/filter changes safely.

All true but he was asking about horsepower gains, which I bet on a dyno would come up as "statistically irrelevant".

Have the same problem w/ my 06 corolla S. It was Sluggish when it shifted out of gears.
Took it to the dealership, was told the power control module had to be replace.
