what can be leaking internally on a transmission on a 1994 Toyota Camry V6 3000 four cam 24


When we leased our Corolla in August, 2009, we purchased the Toyota Extended warranty. It was explained to us that it was a bumper-to-bumper warranty that covered everything except wear & upkeep items, i.e. oil, tires, filters.

There is no booklet, no website, nothing to look at to see what's covered. I'm told I have to just take the car in for service and they'll "turn it in to the warranty company and see if it's covered".

Am I the only one who has this situation with a Toyota Extended Warranty? Without the warranty, I would not be taking my car to the dealer for most things because they are uber-expensive.

Does anyone else have the warranty? What's covered? Are diagnostic fees covered? Their dx fee is $80, and that's before they actually DO anything.

a/c light flashing.put in a new relay and it still flashes


Hi and thanks to one and all that read and respond to this post.

I am looking to purchase a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE at a dealership in the Toronto/York Region area. Does anyone have an idea what a good deal would be? Based on your experiences, is there one dealership over others you would give your business to? The 2014 Toyota Corolla LE has an MSRP of $ 19 500. Is anyone aware of what the actual dealership invoice would be on this vehicle?

Many thanks for your attention to the above.



i am new to the club, and my first Toyota. Working on finalizing a deal on a new 2014 Highlander Limited, and I'm wondering if any of you have experience and words of wisdom regarding my final decisions:

1) is the Toyota AWD as reliable as the rest of Toyota mechanicals? I've never had any type of 4 wheel drive system, but live in Minnesota and it is appealing. Just don't want a nightmare of maintenance or failures.

2) anybody have experience with either the undercoating option, or the 3M plastic paint protection film? I do my own maintenance when I can, and wonder if the undercoating covers SO completely you can't find nuts and such to do underbody repairs... Salt is the enemy here in MinneSnowda, so very appealing option... For the Paint Protection film, I like the idea, but wonder how it holds up over time, what do you do if it gets scratch through, or does it start to peel away like 'sunburned skin', etc?

Thanks!!! I'm looking forward to replacing one of my >250,000 miles vehicles that are not quite as dependable and taking too much time to keep on the road anymore..... but with four teenagers, can't afford to be "a car down" for very long!

Thanks very much!


Hi guys, I have this problem with replacing the 2 " green light bulbs " behind the AC/Heater unit in my Corolla 2003.

I know how to get to the unit behind the clock but I can't get behind the plastic piece holding the control to even stick my hand in there to get to bulbs. I keep taking it apart trying to figure this one out but I don't know.

There is this thick wire attached to the back of it controlling the rotators. I am just running out of ideas. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Is there a way to deattach that wire for easier access ?


Hi Guys,

I have a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE. I recently lost both sets of key and have no way to enter into the car. I've called the Toyota Dealership and getting different pricing and its turning out to be very expensive as follows:

- Key: $200

- Reprogramming: $150

- Tow: $75

and I would have to tow the car to the dealership. Are there any cheaper alternatives? Any thoughts, suggestions and ideas would be appreciated it.

I have a 2004 Toyota Celica GT that recently (within last two weeks) will not unlock the driver's door lock when I press the remote door/hatch unlock button. I am using a Viper remote installed about 5 years ago but all it does is incorporate into the standard Toyota door/hatch lock system. The rest of the locks will lock or unlock as they should however almost every time now I have to press lock then unlock a couple of times to get the driver's door to unlock. I removed the inside door trim and disconnected the cable (hard wire within rigid sheath) suspecting interference or maybe a need to lubricate however there is little resistance and using silicone spray did not resolve the issue. I suspect the electric lock motor / plunger may have a loose mechanical connection or it could be going bad. The car has never had many issues and I would like to resolve this one. Has anyone else had issues like this?
