  1. Holy crap, I think they are trying to take you for ride. Toyotas, especially Corollas are meant to go forever with no maintenance. At your mileage, that is all suspect! These are very high costs for brake materials. Check for yourself on checker auto parts online. Rotors would be maybe $100 for a pair for the front, and pads, $40 or $50 for a pair, with lifetime warranty, free replacement for the life of your car on the pads. Unless you drive the heck outta your car!? Try to find a toyota only, or japanese specialist mechanic shop, NOT a DEALER, and tell them you need to be taken care of
  2. hmmm. Is it manual? It sounds like an axle shaft seal. There are only 3 shaft seals on the transmission, the input shaft, which is where the flywheel and clutch are where power comes in; and around the two axles, left and right. For the input shaft seal, you have to drop the tranny. It's probably one of the axle shaft seals. It's hard to tell which side is bad since the wind blows it around. The steps are: 1. drain gear oil. 2. take off wheel on each side you want to replace... one or both. Loosen wheel assembly, brakes, hub so axle can slide out from transmission. 3. with a pry bar agai

    If its your only car, don't touch it. Check the oil often. When these cars get old they can start to burn oil, then it accelerates. My 94 corolla 7afe has over 203,000 miles, everything original. I get a good 33 to 39 mpg+! If and when you are able to pull the engine and modify, many people put pistons and head from 4age engines, particularly from the 87-89 MR2 red top 4age. Also you can swap a 4agze (supercharged) engine from 88-89 MR2 supercharged. "A" engines are cross compatible for mounts and transmissions. When I go up the mountains, I put the RPMs at 4500 to 5000; that's where peak
