Yes the drive will clear the water by the fact that the engine gets hot ,some garages love to play with their toys this is nothing just a bit of condensation caused by short runs .

WHAT'S NORMALLY THE CAUSE TO BREAK AN OIL PAN FOR TOYOTA COROLLA CE 2005


Bring it to a mechanic different than the one who gave you that advice. I suspect that the plug gasket is leaking. It is possible that you need a new oil pan if you hit it with something like a rock or driving over a curb. Again a mechanic can inspect it and tell you right away. The dealer oil changes have nothing to do with this.

How I can Fix P0741 Code - Toyota Corolla 2005


The code means your lockup clutch is not working. You're not going into top gear and the transmission is slipping. This burns the oil, and burns extra gas.

Change the solenoid if it's truly broken, and see if the transmission goes into lockup and clears the error code. If so you've saved a lot. But you need to change the oil, too.

Excessive overheating!!!,water within oil.? Was told buy friend needed water pump.? Yet now told it may be the head gasket, or manifold gasket? To drive i constantly fill the antifreeze tank with water yet...


Sounds like a head gasket to me. If the oil is milky than the only way coolant can get into the oil is through the head gasket. Since there is also a lot of whit smoke out the exhaust coolant is getting into the combustion chamber and then getting pushed out the exhaust. Your best option might be to find a low mileage used engine. Heads gaskets can get very expensive!

Brake noise check led to > low oil > overheating


I do believe it is odd,that it does this right after the front brakes have been replaced,Make sure the calipers,are not holding the front wheels,so they do not move,if they are,then the vehicle will have a hard time moving,and put a strain on the engine,therefore causing the overheating.I do not think he did anything to it to cause the problem,the oil loss,could just be from oil burning,in a long period of time,of course the oil loss,can cause the engine to overheat too,along with other things.

Leaking oil was told it had an upper and lower oil pan is this correct? Was told in order to repair upper pan , engine needed to come out, this sounds extreme. what can be done to fix the problem?


to examine this firstly buy some degreaser, clean the engine so the location of the leak can be pin pointed, take it to anothe mechanic for a second opinion {always the wiser move}, always into saving money. Good luck

White fumes in the engine oil filler cap


Sounds like you have blown the head gasket when it got overheated.. The white stuff in the oil cap is emusified oil, a bit like mayonnaise.
You will almost certainly need to replace head gasket and service the cylinder head.
