Unknown time spent in my 2002 corolla. 170k on engine, burns a quart of 10w40 every 500 miles. No codes, running "ok" but I feel it stumble on gulps of oil after decellerating. I stuck in some barely used iridiums I pulled from my camry. approved

typical oil burning, fouling the plugs, fix the oil return holes and your issue is resolved. 1zzfe rebuilds are my specialty.

how is it a slushbox? It's actually a pretty good engines, makes good power and decent fuel economy. Yours just needs a DIY oil consumption fix without honing the cylinders, the post is on toyotanation.com

Lol eljefino you are the champ at being a cheap-skate in car repair (in a good way). I think it's awesome how you fix your cars so cheaply, such as using Camry spark plugs in the Corolla.

Slushbox = automatic transmission.

+1 Why pull it apart and replace stuff that isn't broken?

I'm also a terrible pack-rat. laugh The camry plugs might be a heat range colder but I run this thing at 75 MPH most days so it should work out. wink

In the shop
I'll admit, I have learned a TON from Eljefino. Nothing wrong with a great member like him. In this day and age, saving money helps smile

I haven't changed them yet on my wife's '02 Corolla (only at 98k miles) but the listed replacement Denso plugs are only single ground.

98-99 corolla/prizms were dual ground copper plugs(this is the non-vvti version, with spark plug wires) 00-08 corollas/00-05 celicas & spyder mr2/03-08 matrix & vibes use the single ground iridium plug (these are the vvti version with coil over plugs)
