Q: How do i change the headlight bulb in a 1989 toyota corolla?
I need to know how to remove the bulb from a 1989 toyota corolla and replace it as mine is burnt out. Also any idea what bulbs would be an appropriate replacement?

A: On the back of the headlight, turn the base of the light bulb holder and then pull it out. The wires on them should be removable on the base of the bulbs. To remove the bulb from the base turn the bulb and it should be easy to oull out then replace the bulb using the same process. Make sure you wipe the light bulb face so that you leave no finger prints on them, some bulb will burn out with prints on them. Hope this helps.

Q: The lights of my 2003 Toyota corolla comes on when the car is turned off, how do I keep the lights off?
The headlights&taillights of my 2003 Toyota corolla comes on when the car is turned off, every morrning @ 3 am the keys are not in the ignition. I can’t turn them off in the car unless I drive it around the block, then the lights shut off. How can I get the lights to stay off so I can get some sleep and, not run down my car battery?

A: It sounds like a software problem. It might be worth taking it to a dealer so they can plug in diagnostics equipment and trace the fault.

In the meantime simply disconnect the battery at the negative terminal when you park up and reconnect it when you want to start. Takes about a minute.

Good luck whatever you decide.

Q: How much would i get for a 97 Toyota Corolla?
Got a 1997 toyota corolla, great conditions, full coverage, the only problem is the transmition needs to be fixed and it has 207,000 miles.
About how much would i get for this car?

A: 1. That’s really high miles for the year. That’s about 20,000 miles a year, which is almost double what the normal person does. While it’s not high miles in itself, it’s the rate at which it accumulates those miles, that matter. This car has been driven into the ground.
2. You could have looked it up in KBB yourself, and take less than a minute to do. Not sure why you were unable to do that.

For a fair condition car (you say it’s great, but needing a transmission fixed, and having 207k miles, is NOT great), you’re looking at right around $2,000.

Considering that most people will be put off by the miles and the transmission problem….expect offers closer to $1500. And that would be reasonable to take for the car.

Q: How do I convert a toyota corolla ‘97 to run from a gas powered to a vegetable oil powered vehicle?
Im an ex-navy engineer and my 2 other friends are both car engineers. I kind of have an idea of engines, but the other two guys are going to do the critical thinking part. We came to a halt when we realized we had no idea of how to convert a toyota corolla to run on vegetable oil. I researched, and most conversion package are only for diesel powered engines, but found none for unleaded fuels. so I need help, any suggestions would be appreciated.

A: Oddly enough, I’s just reading an article on this this morning, except it was an old Jetta. The key is that you have to start with a diesel engine. Not sure if Corollas even come in diesel. Said that you can order a kit and have your very handy friend or trained mechanic (sounds like that’d be you) install it. Once installed, You have to start the car with diesel fuel (to warm the veggie oil to proper running consistency), and after you’re done driving, you need to let the engine run on diesel again to flush the engine of the cooking oil (I think that has something to do with the higher level of biodegradability of the vegetable oil). I’ll try and find a link to the article for you.

Q: What OEM rotors should I use for 2004 Toyota Corolla?
I am considering replacing the brake rotors in my 2004 Toyota Corolla. Anyone have suggestions of what OEM parts to use as replacement?

A: Why OEM? Maybe the price won’t be too bad at the dealership, but autozone has a Duralast for 35.99 and a Beck Arnley for 86.99.

It really won’t make a difference which one you choose, since there are all cast iron. I have always buy the cheapest ones and never had any problems.
