Asked in Check Engine Light, Toyota Corolla
How do you reset the Check Engine Light on a 1992 Toyota Corolla?
One user's answer There are three ways to shut off the "Check Engine Light" discount battery (not recommended): use a scan tool and delete code, or wait 40-80 key cycles, depending what the code was set for. Now, if you discount the battery for around 5 minutes, the Check Engine Light will come off, BUT all memory will be lost. Therefore, the vehicle would have to "relearn" new criteria/values. It will come back on as soon as the symptoms are seen again and you...
Can a repo man drive over your property to repossess a car?
That is a case of damage to your property by them and you would have to make that claim against them.

They cannot damage any property while trying to get to a vehicle.If they do...

How do you remove oxygen sensor from 1990 Toyota Celica ST?
First off use a spray lubricant very liberally on the threaded area of the sensor. (I recommend PB Blaster. It is a miracle in a can!) Secondly, cut the lead wire close to the sensor so you can use a socket on it. (preferably a 6 point to reduce the risk of rounding off the soft brass hex. Use 1/2" drive for leverage). when installing the new one use a crescent wrench. Do not over-tighten. Mike ...

Some ignition switches are located in the dash board next to steering column....

Where is the tvv valve on a 1997 Toyota Corolla?
On my 1995 Corolla, it is on the back side of the EVAP unit, which is attached to the left (driver side) of the engine block. Another way to locate it is by following the thin vacuum line from the charcoal cannister at the left rear of the engine compartment, this line enters the TVV (Thermal Vacuum Valve) that extends out of the EVAP unit. Perhaps the 97 is setup the same way, but I'm not certain. ...

What kind of power steering fluid is used in a 1990 Toyota Camry?
Answer- OK, I have the same car and went through the same confusion. Use Dextron 2 or 3 as Toyota recommends. Don't use power steering fluid and don't think about brake fluid.
