Help! My 95 Toyota Corolla just required a new left drive axle for $220 last month but the engine still runs rough. The mechanic (who I trust) put industrial strength fuel cleaner (90%) in to smooth out the engine and it ran like a top for about a month or so. After a new tank of gas from Krogers, last Thursday at midnight while driving home in dry ...
My 95 Corolla has always needed a tune up shortly after being serviced. But now, my husband is driving it 40 miles back and forth to work, as the lowest mpg car, but it is hesitating and missing.

I also have my cigarette light that comes on and off (basically moody. Is it something that I can painlessly replace or is it a nightmare to replace. I can go without it but in the winter in Minnesota it gets pretty dark ...
I purchased a new 2010 Toyota Corolla 2 weeks ago and I am very unhappy with it. The seat is not adjustable and I feel like I am driving a bus. It is a very bulky car and find that not only am I getting sciatica and back pain from this car due to the small amount of space in the front, but my judgment is impaired when I drive the car and I do not feel ...
