Have I killed my car?

I was driving my '89 Toyota Corolla on a mud road when it bottomed out in a pile of gravel. At first everything seemed ok, but now, when I start the car, there is a loud vibrating noise (louder inside the car than out.) I also get the noise when I release the clutch into first gear, but not the higher gears. It has been a week now: I am not leaking oil or slipping gears and it doesn't seem to be getting worse. Other than the noise the car seems to be driving normally. Can you be my psychic mechanic? [more inside]

2005 Toyota Corolla stalled on highway; battery cables; recall

Asking for a friend: "I've got a 2005 Corolla. That year/make is one of those selectively affected by the Toyota recall re: random stalling. I never received a notice that my car was affected, but I did buy (and transfer the title) fairly recently. Anyway, my car stalled--basically on the highway at rush hour..." [more inside]

MechanicFilter- Help w/ an '01 Corolla

2001 Toyota corolla (75k) makes a whirring/grinding noise which is clearly coming from the passenger side of the engine compartment. Noise stops when actively turning the steering wheel. Noise is present when idling and moving forward. It's also getting louder from day to day. Any thoughts? I'll be taking it to a mechanic but mine is closed for the holiday weekend. Can I safely keep driving this?

2001 Corolla, Fog Lights Always On

My 2001 Toyota Corolla has spontaneously developed a problem: the front and rear fog lights never turn off, even when the key is out of the ignition. A good mechanic was recommended to me, but he won't be able to see me for several weeks. He warned me to expect to spend $200 minimum. Is there anything I can do in the meantime to try to solve this myself? [more inside]
