  1. Ok so I have a 2002 1.4vvti Corolla. When parked and handbrake on car in nuturel I try to rev the car at approx 1500rpm. The engine will steadily climb revs over 2400rpm then drop down to idle speed all the time I haven't moved the acceleration pedal. I have connected an OBD2 reader and I'm getting 0% reading from the TPS at idle. When it revs up and drops down the readings is 0.4% to 0.8% then goes to 0% while I haven't moved the pedal. When trying to hold revs around 1500rpm it feels lumpy and the rev needle goes up and down approx 200 rpm and it's not happy. Idle speed will not hold steady and can range from 640 to 740rpm when car is fully warmed up. I'm thinking the TPS is incorrectly set up. I can see the car has had a replacement intake manifold as it has the markings in white paint from the likes of a second hand scrapyard etc. I have cleaned the throttle body with carb cleaner and I have also cleaned the maf sensor with correct fluid. I have changed plugs and air filter too. These were routine jobs I done after I got the car. I don't suspect the TPS sensor is actually faulty as I can see clean range from idle to full throttle (with engine off but ignition on) it responds fine. Can anyone confirm the correct TPS % reading for idle? Also anything else I should be looking out for? Oh the previous owner kindly stripped the two little screws that hold the idle control valve in place so taking that off won't be easy!!!
  2. No haven't yet, is it easy enough to do? It looks like the air vents come out with radio would that be correct?
  3. Can anyone please help? I was doing some work and disconnected the battery on my 2002 corolla and now the radio is asking for a code. The radio is model w58802. I've read its probably 0000 or 1234 or the last 4 digits of vin. I don't want to enter wrong codes then maybe locking the unit forever. Does anyone know which code is correct or how I can obtain (ideally without charge would be good)
  4. You could be very correct with that point about the reservoir being low. When I got the car the coolant reservoir was nearly empty, the plugs hadn't been changed in god knows how long so I don't think they looked after the car. I have kept an eye on all fluids and so far so good. I put in a bottle of k seal into the coolant to stop a leak and it worked a treat so if I can recommend it please try it. For a car that has 148000 miles it is surprising such a great drive. I want to keep it until it dies, which may be a long time yet ha ha.
  5. Hi, well I bleed the system using the two person method (it was really quick) and it's much better. The bite point is half way off the floor although sometimes it's bitting just off the floor but not nearly as much. I am going to replace the slave cylinder (start with the cheapest item first) but my local car shop don't have in stock so will need to look online. Is it an easy enough job to do, or anything I should know before starting? Must say this forum has been very useful, helpful and quick so thanks to all.
  6. That makes sense and thanks for the reply. Was a bit confused after seeing the Suzuki reading it had one. Regards
  7. Sorry if this is a dumb question but does my 2002 1.4vvti corolla have an egr valve? Asking because when connected to torque Pro obd reader app it shows "no info" under the egr section. I thought that with the euro4 regulations it should have and also if it does have one why isn't it showing up. I know the app works fine because in my friend's car a Suzuki Ignis 2002 it shows up on that OK. Just a bit confused that's all but any help would be great thanks.
  8. Thanks for your advice and suggestions everyone. I will bleed the system and see what happens, it would be great if it was as easy as that.
  9. Many thanks for the quick reply, I've check the slave cylinder and it's all dry, checked the pedal and it's all nice and dry I can't see any leaks at all. The fluid is at max and hasn't moved in over 400 miles when I first noticed this problem. Today I'm getting a bit of difficulty going into second gear so bad I had to stay in 3rd to keep the car moving. I will try to bleed it and report back any improvement. Is there any point in trying to adjust free play or biting point at the pedal, which looks fun as it's so tight to get your hand in there? Also, I wasn't told when I bought the car about a new clutch so I doubt it is new. Just to be clear it's not everytime the shirt bite point. The next time I drive the car the bite point can be half way off the floor which seems just about right.
  10. Hi, just got a 2002 corolla 1.4 and Iove it. Great smooth car but one problems is annoying me. Sometimes when starting off in first the clutch bites within an inch of lifting the pedal. This doesn't happens always and I can change gear through the rest of the the gears fine and smooth. It has also sometimes stuck in first and I have to pump the pedal to get out of first gear, obviously in heavy traffic this is dangerous and annoying. I haven't had a hydraulic clutch before so I sure what this could be, can it be adjusted at the pedal or bleed at the slave cylinder etc. Any help would be great thanks.
