I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE The recall T-SB-0087-09

Customer Question
I have a 2010...

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE The recall T-SB-0087-09 calls for the Intake cam gear to be replaced Has it been necessary or recommended to also replace the Exaust as well ?.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any fluid leaks lately?

110000 mile. The engine makes a rattaling when first started and is hard to start. The noise decreases as the warms up.I have been told by Mechanics

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. I have had mechanics verify it is the Intake Cam. What i like to know is it necessary to replace the exhaust cam at t same time or is the design of the exhaust different enough that I shouldn't have the same problem to occur with it ?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

No, it is not required during this repair to do the exhaust gear as well. It does not have the issue. Although I do and suggest you inspect while in there.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
