#2677 of 3844 1993 Toyota corolla Transmission problems
Oct 09, 2006 (7:24 pm)
My son is having problems with his Toyota. When he stops at a stop sign he has to put his car in low then wait till it gets to 10 MPH to shift up to high. This is an automatic transmission. Someone said it sounded like the sensor. If so where is this little thingy at and is the possible answer to the problem . Need help in a big way here.

Garage door malfunctioned and the aerial and the threaded nut(?) was pulled from the base of the roof mount. The dealer is 100 mile trip away. Does anyone know what would be involved with fixing the problem? The two people I talked to at the dealer did not know what was required to do the fix. Can the nut(?) be put back into the base? Can the base be changed without changing the the wire lead to the head unit?

Greetings,my daughter's earlier model Corolla had the same symptoms---very frustrating finally undone the earth wire on the body/inside mudguard cleaned it and re tightened.
Problem now gone.
Earth on this earlier car has two wires,1 to the engine,1 to the body---anyway if all else fails try this idea.
Bye for now,Normo1

To lower Nox you should have fresh oil and to decarbonize your engine you can use fuel cleaner by putting trough the trottle body while engine running. You can use half a bottle and little by little. Unless you have a vacuum leak, this will make a rough idle at low Rpms. Check all your hoses for vacuum leaks. Also its a good idea to use a bottle of fuel cleaner that you can put with a full tank. You can get it at Autozone or Kragen. Don't get the cheaper kind 'cause it might not work as good. If you didn't get new spark plug wires its better to check your wires with an ohm meter 'cause if they're not within specified range for your car, the car might run good but it makes big difference on Nox readings. If you drive your car almost every day, it's advisable to change your wires every two years.
O2 sensors are supposed to be changed at 40k to 50k of life. I had a sensor was reading okay and the car wouldn't pass smoke check until I changed the sensor.
Catalitic converters are supposed to last a long time. Although if your O2 sensor was bad it will shorten its life. They also have a life warranty of about 50k miles. Unless it was the original which should last longer.

I too have a high pitched annoying whistle at freeway speeds. It sounds like it comes from the dashboard or speedmeter. its a 2005 corolla S. It is aweful. I don't think my dealer has done much to try to fix it. The only way I can get it to stop is to slow why way down. Has anyone called toyota or found a cause?

I have a 98 Corolla, and the Gas pedal is starting to stick, has anyone experienced this problem and if so, what was done to fix it?

Have you ever had the throttle body cleaned?

This question will probably be my answer but where exactly is that? No, I have never had it cleaned.

This is serviced as a unit except the mast that threads into the base. Go see a local body shop for an estimate. The last I knew the antenna is an assembly from the base in the roof to the radio & has an amplifier in it. Lotsa bucks. Good luck.
