#273 of 1009 2009 Corolla won't start
Nov 29, 2008 (3:12 pm)
After sitting in my garage for 3 days, my Corolla LE (6000 miles) won't start. It comes close to turning over, but it won't go. The battery is strong. Any ideas??
I'm thinking that the problem could be bad gas, fuel injector problems, bad computer module, or a frozen fuel line.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Wow! Highly unusual. With this low mileage I'm assuming this is an 2009? Call the dealer, don't assume it's your fault with bad gas. Let them come get it, it should be a warranty issue.
#275 of 1009 Roof rattle / vibration
Dec 01, 2008 (4:44 am)
I have a 2009 Corolla S with a sunroof. There is a bad rattle noise coming from the roof, sounds like metal hitting metal. Happens all the time even at low speeds. I took it back to the dealer and they had to remove the headliner and said they heard the noise but did not find anything. For a few days after that I think it was okay, and thought it was resolved but the noise came back. If I press against the roof (metal) with the sunroof shade open (behind the sunroof), the noise stops. I am going to contact the dealer again and write to Toyota. Anyone else have this happen? Thanks...
#276 of 1009 hard time opening trunk when hot

I have a hard time opening the trunk on my corolla 09 when the car has been outside on the sun for a while. I am afraid to break the key because of that. I took it to the dealer late on the afternoon and of course it opened nicely there. Maybe some very close tolerances on the lock cilinder ?

I never really tried my trunk key, I've always used the keyless entry. I'll have to check it out.

I use the keyless entry, but I have noticed that my truck sticks from time to time, and I have to push down on it slightly after hitting the button on my key. It was a slight annoyance in the summer.

I'm having the same sunroof noise issue with my 09 Corolla S. It sounds like something is hitting the metal roof frame. I took it to the dealer and they did not find anything wrong. Just the other day, I made sure the rubber seal was on tightly and adjusted it in the back, and that seemed to help and I did not hear the noise for once.

I also have an 09 Corolla that sat in my garage for only one day and would not start. I had it towed to the dealer and the dealer said that I flooded the engine. I asked him how I could flood the engine when the only directions to start is to turn the key to crank the engine. My wife and I do not trust the car to start now since I was not really given a reason why it would not start.

I have an 09 Corolla and my dashboard rattles with 10,000 miles on it . I am taking it back to the dealer this week since it got worse in the cold weather. I am hoping they can stop the rattle without tearing the dashboard apart and making it worse.

You gave him a very good response to his "flooding" comment. Did he have an answer to that? I hope they didn't charge you for the towing!
