Some kind of Toyota given the vvti. I know you said its high off the ground and toyo cars have no engine space usually, so some kinda Ute or something that had an option for a 6 cyl... but its only a 4 cyl, so it cant be very large....Gonna guess Rav4 or Tacoma?

It's an '04 Corolla. Never had so much room on a compact. I did have to jack it up though, oil filter was stuck and I needed better leverage, but you can reach it without normally.

WHEN THAT ENGINE FAILS, WHICH IT SERIOUSLY LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO DO VERY SOON, THAT CAR WILL BE SALVAGE MATERIAL, LIKE I SAID.

IT IS A JUNKYARD DOG.

CORROSION ISNT JUST SKIN DEEP.

Corrosion isn't much of a problem here, and I don't see any, so.... Guess they didn't have auto shop in prison.

all that gray nonsense all over your engine... that is corrosion.

maybe try cleaning your engine sometime.

i remember the first time i saw a older car from the 50's i believe, i thought something was wrong with it cause you could see around the entire block and reach all the way through to the ground with ease probably could have stood inside the hood compartment next to the engine . its crazy nothing but plastic in my one now, scarcely fit a socket to get to the plugs

My first was was a 65 Ford Falcon. Litttle 4-cyl engine that could barely get out of its own way but at 6'6 I could almost crawl into the engine compartment to work on things. Now I can even see down into the engine of my F-150.
