#3241 of 3856 Re: 2004 toyota corolla grinding bearing noise when cold [ed2004corolla]
Feb 17, 2009 (6:37 am)
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 3856 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

Feb 24, 2009 (2:26 pm)
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.

I would imagine that the light will come on again soon if this problem persists. I might also ask for a notataion to be put in writing that you did bring the car into the dealer for this problem before your warranty actually does expire should the light come again after the warranty does expire..
#3248 of 3856 2005 valve clearance check
Feb 28, 2009 (5:30 am)
just wondering if anyone here has adjusted the valve clearances on their Corrolla. I do my motorcycles easy enough, but have not attempted any work on the Toyota yet.
Is it difficult?
ANY recommendations for a good manual?
thanks in advance.

Are you experiencing a problem that would necessitate valve adjustments?

According to the manual valve "adjustment" involves pulling the camshaft(s) and replacing out of adjustment lifters with new lifters of appropriate thickness - seems if this was ever required you might just as well pull the heads and get valve guides, cam bearings etc...
