Mobil 1 10W-30 High Mileage Advance Full Synthetic Motor Oil-1 Quart. How many of these 1 Quart do i need for my Toyota corolla 2005 to be gauge in when doing service?

Capacity is 4 litre

A gallon will do.

You actually need a little over 4 litres (4.4quartz or 4.2 litres). Buying 5 * 1 Quartz is not cost effective. Save money, buy a single 5 Quartz keg.

Ok.But some corolla engine don't even use up to 4 litres. For example; my former 2005 corolla car. I don't know whether my current corolla sport can take 4.2 litres. Thanks

If your dipstick has not been changed at any time, your Corolla must use nothing less than 4 litres.

What evidence do you have to back up this claim for the 1ZZ-FE engine?

Doing great.

You need to confirm the engine specs of your ride. The 1ZZ-FE has a lower oil capacity than the 2ZZ-GE.

Hello Oga Gazzuzz I’ve done a more comprehensive report.

Seems the Tire pressure sensor is bad, what suggestion do you have considering I just changed three of the tires

This thread is dedicated to solving car related problems, it will cover all issues feel free to post problems here, Car gurus your posts are welcome and highly appreciated.

I drive a 2011 C300, the car is very low. I entered a very bad road today. After driving a few distance, I noticed some black oil like thing dripping on the ground. The car is just 2 months old. Took it to the mechanic for a brief check, they raised it up and couldn’t identify where it’s coming from. I am to take it back tomorrow so they can check it again. I want to know what to expect.

Do not start the engine again till you know where it's leaking from.

Hello car gurus, please help me out here

this is my first car ever, so please don't mind my lack of experience

P0011
P0141
P2185

and also I did a little bit of research on the P0141 code and it's related to the 02 heat sensor, my problem is I don't know where it is located.

Car Model: Honda Accord 2008

Please any help will be well appreciated. Also, anyone knows where I can buy original Honda OEM parts in Abuja?

P0011 HONDA Meaning
The Engine Control Module (ECM) optimizes the valve timing using the Valve Timing Control (VTC). The ECM sends a target duty cycle control signal to the VTC. This control signal regulates the oil pressure supplied to the VTC. The VTC can advance or slowpoke the engine timing.

What the P2185 code means. This code indicates that the sensor is sending data to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) indicating a cooler coolant temperature that may actually exist. (Thermostat removed, fans blowing direct)


The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. ... Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors. If the sensor and connector are OK, replacing the O2 Sensor 1 usually takes care of the problem.

It stems from the lack of maintenance culture especially by Nigerians. Everyone wants a car they can overuse and abuse without completely breaking down. The irony is that the cars they opt for break down even more frequently. Engines are now a part of car's consumables.
