Sassygirl's 03 Corolla
 
Since I've been spending all this money and effort of the Camaro i figured I'd do a little for the lady as well.

This is our 03 Corolla. She's owned it for about 4-5 years. I think it has 160k of the odo.

Dspite my effort to repair them, the headlights lenses are trash so to help her see better at night I got a set of these.

The Sassy mobile has some trouble recently. damn ticking near the top of the motor. My first thought was the valve train however to my luck these 1.8L motor have a common failure in the Hydraulic Timing chain tensioner. The chain was hitting the timing cover. 40 dollars and easy fix... could have been alot worse :lol:

you can see the droopy chain :rofl:
