  1. I will check that in the morning, I actually bought a spray bottle for that, But I only sprayed around the intake manifold, I did not notice any change in rpms. I'll spray around a bit more and see what happens. Thx for helping me with this Konrad, this is boggling for me lol
  2. I disconnected the MAF sensor while engine was running and it immediately shut off, a smooth decline in RPMs until it finally just stopped, as if I turned the key in the ignition off.
  3. I pulled out the MAF sensor and it was quite dirty, and I cleaned it off with some plain water and cotton swabs until a new swab was bring up no dirt. That solved my Too lean code, now its just 5 codes, random misfire and misfire cylinders 1 through 4. So we are making progress maybe? One thing I did notice when I replaced the O2 sensor after the catalytic coverter, is that someone crossthreaded the hole and I had to do my best to rethread it but it kind of still went in ever so slightly crooked, could that be a problem although its made a good seal?
  4. The one thing I havnt checked into yet was the MAS, gonna look into clearing that off today.
  5. Does anybody have some insight on this? I inspected all the possible air line hoses for any leaks and I cant find any. All hoses are intact and not compromised.
  6. Ok so its throwing 7 codes P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected P0302 - Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected P0303 - Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected P0304 - Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected P0130 - O2 Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 1 (Although I've already replaced both O2 sensors....) P0171 - System Too Lean Bank 1
  7. I'd have to pull the codes in the morning, Except that info in about 6-10 hours from this post
  8. Well, I recently had a clutch replaced in my 04 corolla, just to have it start misfiring. I tried to do alot of digging to find out what was causing my car to throwing a random misfire code, as well as all 4 cylinders misfire code and a Bank 1 too lean code. I decided to look around on the internet, lots of people/videos said it would be a bad intake manifold gasket. Well I replaced that as well as the throttle body gasket while I was in there, still same codes, still the same rough idle....Anybody have any ideas on what this could be? I know its a vacuum leak somewhere, but Ive looked at all the hoses and they are all connected, the only thing I can think of is that somehow one of the hoses got torn/cut in the process of reinstalling the clutch. Any good fast way to figure out if any of the hoses are compromised?
  9. The spark plugs looked like normal ones in the sense of the filament and the metal above the plug itself but the threads had a good amount of oil around them. and yes the spark plugs are coil on spark plugs meaning each one has an ignition pack on it. But for all 4 to go out at the same time is almost unheard of. if the new gasket doesnt work and testing each cylinder with a new coil on spark plug doesnt work, I'll check for the intake valve and see if anything is lodged in there, if all else fails, I'll take it to the toyota dealership and have them take a look at it.
  10. So, I'm still getting the misfire a week later, its only at idle though, during rev it sounds fine. No hiccups or sputters except in idle. I did a compression test, all cylinders ranged from 120-130 psi, so we have good compression around the board. I highly HIGHLY doubt all 4 coil on spark plugs would go bad all at the same time. So I'm gonna rule out spark, which means what we have left is fire, which by the looks up it from the spark plugs and the compression tester end came out with oil on them. So I'm guessing maybe a bad valve cover gasket? What do you think OC? Do you think there could be enough oil getting into the combustion chamber to bog down the idle but not during the rev up?
  11. Battery is going on 3 years old, I'm going to take it in to the advance near my house, they do free battery testing, I'm gonna get it tested and see whats up with it, sadly atm i do not have a multimeter lol. Lame I know. I did go over the engine with the cover off, I inspected all of the coil on spark plug covers, no cracks or anything like that, however I did notice that the spark plugs threads looked like they were oil fouled, but the actual plug itself looked bone dry, kinda of concerning like the o rings were bad or something. I dont know. Im gonna be having that checked out as well. Just not so sure where to go from here if the battery indeed shows that its in fine working condition. I checked all the hoses and such and re-seated the ones i could get to. However, I do hear what I think to be a hissing noise, but I couldnt find the source of it. maybe a line got cut or something and is causing a vacuum leak?
  12. Yeah, I looked at everything and the earth straps are all there, I dont have the foggiest idea whats going on tbh, I think I'm just gonna take this problem to the dealership and find out what they tell me it is and how much they want to charge for it. Theres wayyyyy too many things to check with my limited 1 day off from work. So yeah. I'm still gonna go have the battery tested to make sure its good, then Imma head to the dealership just for them to tell me whats wrong
  13. Well, let me ask this, does the computer need to relearn the timing and such since its been disconnected from the battery for almost 2 weeks? Because I'm getting a super bad misfire now, the misfire is super noticeable during idle and barely noticeable through acceleration. I hooked up my scanner to it and its throwing 5 codes, P0300 for a random misfire, then P0301 through P0304 each code representing each cylinder misfiring. Any thoughts on this? I've looked up these issues with other Corollas and some said that it could be that the battery is bad, or vacuum leak or fuel filter/pump. I checked to make sure all hoses were connected and no holes in them, I'm gonna take the battery to get tested next week, and I wouldnt think it would be the fuel filter/pump because if it was, it would be some super harsh bogging down when I accelerate and since theres none of that and only a slight misfire during acceleration. Any tips or tricks to try and nail down this problem? Mind you it was NOT misfiring before I did the clutch. However since I didnt have some sort of way to suspend the gearbox so I could get it back in, I took it to a nearby mechanic and he claims it wasnt anything he did (He's probably lying to try and have me bring it back for more money.) But yeah. Any ideas there OC?
  14. Hey OC, when you get the chance, I'm having a little bit of a problem, I just want to quickly ask you about it. Ill probably end up making another new thread if you havnt replied by the time I wake up. Talk to you soon!
  15. Thanks OC, your words of encouragement are the best!
