  1. I have a 2008 toyota corolla s 5-speed manual transmission and my idle speed is too low when waiting in traffic and it has been low enough to kill the car, So i need to know how to change that but also the knock sensor location I cant find.
  2. Hi all, I have a 2007 Toyota Rav4 which I recently took to Discount Tire to have new tires put on. I decided to replace all 4 tires after I got a flat tire (rear right). I used the car jack that came with the car to lift it and put on the spare tire, then had the new tires put on a week later at the Discount Tire store. I made the mistake of not inspecting everything after I left the shop, but now a week or so later, I noticed the metal runner on the frame (not sure what this is called), is severely bent outwards (see pic...that piece is supposed to be vertical and is now bent out completely horizontal). This is the same area where I used my car jack to put on my spare tire, however I used the pinch welds, which you can see on the far right of the picture. The pinch welds are not where the damage was done (that part is still vertical), which leads me to believe that it couldn't have been me that caused the damage when I lifted it to put on the spare. That, plus it seems hard to believe I wouldn't have noticed this damage happen in real time when I put on the spare. I'm not sure exactly what they used to lift the car at the stop either. Who's to blame here?
  3. According to foreign media reports, French car registrations fell by 15% in December due to a "Yew" protest against French President Emmanuel Macron's economic policies. In December, sales of luxury cars were more pronounced as anti-government activities spread throughout France. When the demonstrations took place on Saturday, the protests led to a 16% drop in retail sales. Because distributors in the French suburbs gathered near traffic circles and shopping malls, protestors blocked traffic and potential consumers preferred to stay at home, which affected car dealers. Porsche's sales in France fell 73% in December, Alfa Romeo's 51% and Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz's 39%, 31% and 22% respectively. Sales of Nissan and Jeep brands in France also performed poorly in December, with sales falling by 57% and 45%, respectively. The French Automobile Industry Association (CCFA) said Toyota's new car sales fell 15% to 165,390 units. December has 20 sales days, the same as December 2017. As a auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new information and new energy industries.
  4. Ford, Toyota, BMW, Subaru, Volvo, Honda and Mercedes-Benz are planning routine shutdowns at their factories, including those in the United States that started after December 21 and are expected to resume production on 2nd,January. Nissan will follow a similar shutdown schedule, but will resume production on 3rd,January. The additional shutdown period of Lansing Grand River Plant will prepare for the new production shift model starting in mid-January. People familiar with the situation said that the Lansing Grand River plant has had two production shifts and plans to cancel one. Although the assembly line operates faster, the body and spray painting will continue to maintain two production shifts. The Lansing plant employs about 1,900 people and has stopped producing ATS cars since June. Production of Cadillac CTS is expected to end in the near future with the commissioning of CT5. Chevrolet Cormelo's sales showed a double-digit decline in 2018. The situation of the whole international automobile industry is not good, leading to the closure or shutdown of most automobile factories. As the largest pump manufacturer in China, Xixia Water Pump and its pump production subsidiary also bear certain pressure. But we have a large customer base and are not affected by it as a whole.
  5. Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp said they will spend $3.1 billion in the US in the next five years, joining other vehicle manufacturers in announcing investment plans amid threats from President-elect Donald Trump of higher levies on auto imports from Mexico.
  6. Toyota ends six-year shareholding with Tesla Motors. Toyota revealed it had sold its entire stake in Tesla, as the two car makers abandoned plans to jointly develop electric cars. Japan’s biggest car maker bought a 3% stake in Tesla Motors for $50 million (£39m) in May 2010. It is believed to have made around 10 times that - £373m - by selling its remaining shares late last year. Source news: CarMagazine
  7. Hi, I'm trying to decide for a car to lease in Saudi Arabia (very hot weather) between two cars for a three years lease. It's between the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Over Land, or the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser GXR3, MR, V8, 4x4, AT. Gas price is not a concern, and I may use the car for offroading once in a while in the desert. No family so size isn't an issue too. So I'm leaning towards the Jeep as I love the way it looks but I wish I could affoard the V8.

    RWD vs FWD

    Hello, I am a person who loves to drive quite vigerously sometimes (in safe areas obvously) and im wondering if its a stupid idea to buy a front wheel drive car instead of a rear wheel car like I an now. I know FWD will mean possible understeer and worse handeling but will it affect it too much becase there are some FWD cars I like out there (thinking of cars like toyota blade with around 200HP) but should I just stick to RWD and find something else? Give me your point of view to help me decide. Thanks,
  9. I have been looking at both of these cars, and want a serious review of each and which one would be best and most reliable after the 20ish years off of the production line. I would only be driving the car around the area in which I live, so not very long distances. Thank You!
  10. Hi everyone! I am doing a project on the car dealership process and how we can improve it. Can you please help me by filling out this short survey? http://ucimerage.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6x0uLaB52Qg5aAd Thank you!!!
  11. Hi, My dad's looking at Lexus SUVs for around $15k (dealer price), but around that price you can only find older 2004-2006 SUVs with 130k+ mileage here in Alabama whereas for the same price you could get a 50k mileage 2011 RAV4, CRV, or other Honda/Toyota SUVs. But he still thinks that even older Lexus SUVs will still have better reliability, will last longer with less maintenance, have better features, have better parts like engine/transmission/suspension/etc than newer Toyota/Honda SUVs. How can I convince him otherwise? Like, are there any good sites/resources/articles with comparisons or sites where I can get detailed car specs as proof? Or am I wrong here, and older Lexus SUVs actually are better buys than newer Toyota/Honda SUVs at the same price?
  12. Hey everyone I'm relatively new to the topic of buying cars and I'm trying to do so on a budget, so I'm trying to find a deal buying a used car. My rents had a Toyota so I'm trying to stick with what I know. Anyway from my research I've understood that important things to consider are mileage, clean title, scratches/dents, and numbers of owners as the most important factors. From that I've found two listings that seem to have all the necessities: http://miami.craigsl...4689396152.html and from ebay http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649 My questions are Do these listings look good? I mostly just need a nice car that will get me from A to B that is safe. Did I forget anything important to look at? Which looks like the better deal and how much should I be willing to bid on the second listing? BTW, I'll be moving Boston for my new job, so I'd be driving the cars up there.

  14. I found a 2001 Toyota Corolla with 200k miles on it on Craigslist and also a 1997 Chevy Cavalier with 88k miles on it. Obviously, 88k miles is a lot less than 200k miles, but I'm wondering if it would even matter considering Toyotas run forever. I need a reliable car for college (I will be commuting everyday for college this fall) and both have minimal/no rust. My mom owns a 1999 Toyota Camry and it is still running today (over 200k miles, check engine light is on but not sure what the problem is, it is also very loud), so a Corolla would still be a good choice based on what I've heard and seen. Which should I go with? I do not drive a lot outside of the fact that I will be going to college (about 20-25 miles there and back). I also would take very good care of whichever one I go with (oil changes, washing, driving), but is the Chevy the best choice because it has the lower miles? I live in Upstate NY, so the winter is definitely harsh on cars here. Thanks for the help!

  16. I am buying a Unregistered vehicle. It's a 1994 Toyota Hilux Ute/Tradie Vehicle. The original wheels are too large and will not pass the Road Worthy Certificate (RWC). I would swap my Dad's 5 stud wheels with the ute's 5 stud wheels for the RWC test. My parents wheels are 14 inch rims and should be small enough but I read somewhere that the tradie vehicles fall under a heavy vehicle or transport vehicle classification or something like that which means they need heavy or heavier duty wheels and that the standard (Wagon) wheels are illegal. Is that correct or shouldn't I worry for the Roady test? Do I need to buy the original second hand hilux wheels for it to be road worthy? please help I also don't know anyone to sell me the original toyota wheels so this could become a huge headache. Stupid vehicle legality laws
  17. Toyota has just released the brand new Fifth Generation 2014 Prado which includes more features than the outgoing model and a fresh facelift both inside and out. Check out the car review at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtIdHzKXiLE
  18. Our goal will be to improve you Car's MPG so you're able to save fuel, save money and help the environment together. Here are some more petrol saving tips: 1) Remove Pounds - The heavier the motor vehicle, the lower its gas fuel consumption rate is. By lightening up your truck you Increase MPG twice: · Every time you stop and after that accelerate you burn less petrol. · Your tire drag is reduced this means you burn less fuel. As a rule of your thumb, 50 pounds (25 Kg) of pounds will increase your fuel utilization by 2%. Similar to an adequately inflated tire - a lighter car can even wear the tire much a reduced amount of (more savings), and is safer to drive. So keep your trunk clean, and save money on motor vehicle fuel! 2) Reduce Drag - Any unnecessary item just like Ski, Bicycle, and Luggage-Top-Carrier produces ample drag. Driving on the highway with any of them installed increases your car's petrol consumption by 10%-15%. Make yourself a habit of removing the ski-rack or bicycle-rack, and installing them back only when needed. 3) Back Off a Bling - Wide tires could look cool, but they create more friction and reduce fuel economy and MPG. The total amount? At least 5% or extra, depending on the type with tire and how wider its then the stock tire. Spoilers may look cool, but hamper you actually fuel economy by creating extra drag. Much like Ski/Bicycle/Luggage-Rack they may have a huge effect on a person's MPG, especially on the hwy. So back off the bling and not spend as much on car fuel. 4) Remove Snow and Ice - Driving which includes a pack of snow on a person's roof top or engine cover contains a very big impact on a person's fuel. It hampers your petrol economy in two ways: · It includes tremendous drag · It weighs considerably more information click here

  20. I am planning to buy a used car from dealer with a budget around $14k. It's going to be my commuter/daily car. Gas saver not really my target, but at least the engine is not more than 3.0. I'm really interested with BMW 328i, which is with my budget I will get year 2007(I prefer this year body than 2012). I loved all the features on that car and totally satisfied with all the interiors(leather seat, split seat version, mp3 aux, moon roof, and sound system), so I'm not going to modify anything once I got the car, because I'm a male 26yr old who care about style. But what I'm worried is I never had any experience of BMW series, even ride the car. I have no idea how much money I'm going to spend for maintenance and how much for any part replacement(I believed it will be expensive). But I'm kind of "clean car person". And if I buy this car, I will take care my car just like my lovely girlfriend. I also believed BMW has a very good handling and I'm not gonna disappointed. I need a price range how much I will spend for the maintenance/year. My second thoughts is Toyota Prius. I pick this car because it has a really gas saver and because of Toyota, I believe it has a pretty low maintenance also. And with my budget, I will get year 2010 (I'm not gonna get below 2010 because I don't like the body). But all the features on this car just will be okay for me except the gas mileage. If BMW 328i has a reasonable and fair cost maintenance for me, maybe I'll stick with BMW 328i. one more thing, I'm a snowboarder that's why I need the BMW 328i split seat version.
  21. Hi I really need some help / advice here. Me and my Dad bought a 2nd hand care 3 weeks ago and it turned out to be a bad deal. We had all the repairs done and it just passed the smog test (it failed for 3 times) after they recommended to change the catalytic converter, in which my dad did replace this afternoon. So now the car is registered at the DMV. When my Dad came back, the vehicle suddenly it lost power while he was driving and then the engine is making a 'clanking'/'rattling' (i do not know the proper english word for this) noise. He had the vehicle insurance company tow the vehicle back to our house and it was able to function but the engine sound is persistent. What is the problem with the vehicle now? We thought after we finished the registration it would all be well. Any suggestions now for this? The car btw is a White Toyota Avalon 1996. We need help!! Helpful comments/advice are appreciated!!

    Toyota Soarer

    I've been looking around for my first car and I am keen on the Toyota Soarers. The one I am thinking of is the 1992 twin turbo. Does anyone know of particular problems with the car or this specific model. I know the door hinges can wear out, another other things I should look for when going to look for the car and what should I ask about it ?
  24. A little over a month ago I purchased a 2004 Toyota Camry Solara. Initially I really liked this car - it was flashy, decent on gas mileage (better than my 2001 Ford Taurus, at least) and it was the first car I ever bought that I actually picked out myself. I did a little shopping around before I bought this car, though I'll admit that I didn't really research as much as I should have. A few days after I bought the car the light for the tire traction came on. I reset it with no problem, but then a day later the maint light came on. Thinking it was a similar problem, I looked into how to reset the light, but nothing came up. Finally, the check engine light came on about a week and a half after I purchased the car. I took it in and was shocked that the O2 sensor needed to be replaced and it would cost $500 to do it. I found myself wondering why they didn't replace it when they checked out the car because to me it just seems like something they would have noticed when they checked the car out. Guess not. The only saving grace was that they offered to meet me half way with a $100 deductible. So instead of $500 I only paid $350. I was going to report them to the Better Business Bureau because really it seemed like something they should have caught, but after I threatened to do this they pointed out that they didn't actually need to meet me half way at all and that I was getting a deal. I'm not entirely ungrateful and I suspected that I would only look like a bitch if I reported them after they were actually being reasonable. A few days go by before the check engine light comes on again. Thinking that the O2 sensor failed or maybe it was something minor, I wasn't overly worried when I took it in a week later. Unfortunately it seemed that nothing was going in my favor because it turns out the catalytic converter was shot and it would cost $1,200 to fix. I'm not very car savvy, but it seems to me that $1,200 for a catalytic converter is a bit steep and it also seems like that's something that they should have either noticed or at least warned me about beforehand. It's been a little over a month since I got the car and so far it's been nothing but trouble and the gas mileage isn't nearly as good as I was hoping it would be -- a tank only lasts me a day longer than my old car and this tank is 4 gallons bigger. Aside from the fact that I can't even afford to use a credit card to pay for the repairs, I don't know if it's worth keeping any more. Part of me hopes that maybe this will be the last problem I have with it, but at the same time it seems like they're either incompetent or they're screwing me over with this car. I really would like to return the car, but I don't know if there is anyway I can do it without losing a ton of money. I considered selling it myself, though I can't imagine too many people willing to pay $10,000 for a car that needs $1,200 worth of work when it's not worth $10,000 (the amount of my loan). Any suggestions? I'm considering maybe asking my mechanic here in town if he could fix it, but I'm not sure if there is any programming that needs to be done with it. My grandfather has a mechanic friend that might be able to do it for a cheap price, but he's usually slow (it'd probably take him over a week to do it). As a last resort, I could walk away from the car but I'd like to look at my options first. I live in Wisconsin and from what I saw lemon law doesn't cover used cars and even if it did the problems haven't been significant enough for it to be called a lemon. If you need more information, let me know -- thanks ahead of time!
