#3237 of 3858 01 corolla tension pulley
Jan 25, 2009 (3:03 pm)
I have a 2001 corolla s and had the tension pulley go bad it would rattle when in gear during certain rpm ranges so I bought a new pulley with the assembly from toyota and within a year it also went bad. I know there has been alot of problems with the pulleys from toyota. I am going to try a aftermarket part. my question is the problem in the assembly or the pulley? I would hate to have to replace the whole assembly since it costs so much. If anybody knows please let me know.

I know on my 2001 LE the car was recalled shortly after I purchased it for the tensioner. They put a new one on and haven't had a problem. Of course I didn't have a problem before it was recalled either.

Goes away after the car warms up....??????Not a squeaking sound more of a hummm o/ grind bearing noise... Does not do this all the time..... Randomly will do this when it is under 30 outside...or freezing temps..
Dont seem to know what to do or check.... This started at about 10,000 miles never happens in the summer.... only all winter long.... Anyone with ideas guessing its a bearing in the waterpump, alternator or something.... seems low on the front engine when it happens cant seem to pin point it thou..... ????????? dry timing chain???? bearing in there?????

The tensioner problem seems to be very common on the Corolla's from what I have heard. My cousin-in-law went ahead and had it replaced at the Toyota dealership he works at under a goodwill warranty. That was 1 year ago and it has gone bad again. So now I have to replace it again. As for the grinding noise it seems to be the starter. Starters usually grind upon startup when cold because the solenoid sticks. This obviously isn't a problem during the warmer months. However, this sticking issue is going to take it's toll on the starter eventually.

I had the same problem it was usually the rear more often than the front. I removed the rear drums and clean off all the brake dust and lightly sanded the shoes and drums reinstalled them adjusted them for proper operation and it stopped the same with the front.

#3244 of 3858 Solenoid D - 2007 Corolla
Feb 23, 2009 (6:55 pm)
My check engine light came on today and started jerking on my way to work. Worried I stopped by a repair shop on my way to work to see what the issue was. They told me it was a P2716 solenoid d issue, and that my car was still under warranty so to take it to the dealership. They said they would go ahead and reset it for me and give me the diagnostics so I didn't have to pay a diagnostics fee twice. I called a dealership and they won't touch my car until the check engine light comes back on since they need to pull the code on their own diagnostic system for warranty issues. The told me basically to keep driving it and eventually the light would probably comem back on.
My warranty is up in August. Does anybody know when this type of code will set an engine light again? Is the dealership just giving me the run around? I'm concerned my warranty is going to expire and then the light will come back on.
Any thoughts would be appreciated

I have a 2005 Corolla. It had the Check Engine Light on ever since i bought it. When it was under warranty, the dealer replaced the O2 sensor thee times and the check engine light kept coming on. After, the warranty (36,000mi), the dealer told me to take a hike. Now the diagnostics is saying the main computer is bad which is warranteed until 80K miles. I have 83K miles and Toyota is saying "too bad". Doea anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.
