Toyota VVTI 16 valve 4-cyl

My mom has a 2005 Corolla that was totaled in an accident. We purchased the car back from the insurance company. I would like to know what years and models of toyotas this engine will fit. The engine still runs fine and I would like to find a toyota with no engine to put the engine from her car in. Thanks.

It’ll fit in several cars. Years 2001-2007 Toyota Corolla, Chevy Prizm, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Celica, Toyota Matrix, I think that’s it.

I think it’s in many of the Scions too.

The answers are correct. (I have an '04 Matrix, same engine)

I think your only concern MAY be whether the vehicle will have an auto or standard trans.
