Which is why I had ZERO issues with my '99. I changed my oil frequently, NEVER went over 5,000 miles or 6 months, so mine did not use oil.
So I will say that the car did not have enough tolerance for neglect.

I WILL NOT drop it!!! It is a factory defect and the car is NOT FIXED. Toyota denies any problem with the IZZ engines.

Try to accept the things you cannot change.

What a ridiculous idea - we should NOT accept poor work and faulty design when the company KNEW about the problem.

You guys must have got lemons , I have three Corollas(two with high mileage) and none use ANY oil between changes. I had a "79" Corolla and a "86" Tercel also both of which never used oil between changes either.

It was the IZZ FE engine. Toyota knew but did not fix it.

I posted earlier but my post disappeared. After 14 years of good service the car started to burn oil. The dealer said that there must be sludge clogging the engine. I am now looking to buy another car.
1)I am wondering if the problem of small piston or piston rings or the holes behind the piston being small etc. etc. have been resolved by Toyota?
2) Do i have the IZZ FE engine in my 1998 corolla?
3) Has any one heard about 2011 or 2010 corollas engine?
thanks for help.

I am correcting question no. 3 and adding question no. 4 to my above post:
3) Has any one heard about 2011 or 2010 corollas engine failing due to burning oil or sludge?
4) What other problems the 2009-2011 Corollas have?

4) like any new vehicle there are some TSB's of items to keep an eye on, but no failings or major problems that I know of; I have a 2009 and I just love it.
