2002 Toyota Corolla Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Toyota Corolla to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Toyota’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Corolla? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Toyota Corolla. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Toyota Corolla engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
