    Shit it’s in good nick for a 91 model. Just spent a few hours working on sons corolla, does anyone know how to reset codes?

      Google it and have a Japanese person standing by to translate for you.

      Switch everything off and have all doors closed. Turn the ignition on and off 7 times. Open and close the left door twice. Put your arm under your left leg and give the gearstick a Masonic handshake.
      All done.

      Disconnecting the battery for 10 – 15 mins will do it on a lot of Euros. Otherwise your local mechanic can clear the codes in about 3 minutes. What model/year? Get my email off Whale and I’ll check for you in the morning.

        Thanks Tom, youtube was a bit of help but our model slightly different then the one shown ( ours, 1994 Toyota corolla GT2L ), removed fuse and use paper clip to bridge points on plug for diagnostics. Thought the trouble was in air intake, stupid boy racer car has one of those pot air filters, totally useless for long dusty tracks, heaps of shit in air system. Removed and clean out with air flow lube, new plugs as running rich and carbon up. But not sure if fixed the problem as can not read the code flashes from the engine symbol and can’t get it to reset. Car only revs to about 3500. Mate has a lube book with codes in it, he’s a brilliant mechanic, I’ve probably done something stupid. Well see tomorrow, thanks anyway.
