    What type of sounds comes from the engine? Rattling sound or some other type?Which mobil oil are you using? After how many kms do you change your oil and filter! Are you the first owner of this car?

    2010 and 15000kms seems fishy at showrooms end.Meter would have been reversed and now you're facing the problems.Anyways double check it.

    Meter reverse check: run it with any other car at 100-120, your car will either speed up, or It will show a lower speed than the other car.
    It's the easiest way to check meter tampering

    Nopes try to run it with the same car.
    Paki meter guys are not that authentic. They will play with needles, and change the calibration of needles :p

    Btw tyre size doesn't put a difference of 10-20km/h

    It's not that they put it on a spindle that runs anti clockwise and turns it back, the electronic odometers have their memory in a computer chip. That chip is accessed electronically and it's memory is replaced by programming into a new number.

    To open a meter the needle may have to be removed but that doesn't mean that it will give an error of 10 to 20 Km p h when fitted again. If it sits on zero correctly it will display speed correctly as before, provided that the tyres are not exceptionally large or small.

    This is particularly true for the corolla mentioned above that does not have a stop pin at zero. Its needle rests at a pivot in its internal mechanism and is very easy to reinstall.

    Agreed, in most digital speedometers, they dont have to fettle with the needles at all, just remove and program the chip, the only clue can be screws that hold the meter, if they look fishy then its a sure case of meter tampering. Here is a video that may help

    elaborate on the sound, post a video,

    is it a ticking noise from the engine or a grinding noise or can of nails noise etc? is it loud from the outside to or just interior etc
    did the car came with service history? if the car really is driven 15k it must have service history at least, all record of oil changes since start etc

    and you are using petron 20W-50 oil? thats what toyota dealership pours and its a bad choice.
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!
