#55 of 79 how to drain torque converter
Jul 27, 2010 (5:18 pm)
When changing automatic transmission fluid, you also need to drain the fluid from the torque converter (and change the trans filter) to do a complete job. I have heard that some auto transmissions no longer have a drain plug on the torque converter. I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla with automatic trans. Does anyone know if this car has a drain plug on the torque converter? If it does not, how do you drain the torque converter without doing a flush job, and the problems that can cause. Note to everybody: don't forget about changing the separate differential compartment fluid now and then (which my car has).
#56 of 79 transmission slipping
Oct 19, 2010 (2:31 am)
I have a 1989 toyota corolla with 145,000 miles on it and it jerks when it increases from 30 miles an hour to 40 miles an hour. Is this the transmission slipping? It doesn't do it all the time. There are some days when it does not do it at all. But when it does jerk, it is a powerful jerk. Can anybody help me? It is an automatic 3 speed transmission.

Can we assume you already checked the transmission fluid level? Did the fluid look clear or did it look dark and smell burnt?

Yes, the transmission fluid is okay and is in good standing.

A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

I've let my 17 yo drive my Corolla for the past few months and now when I put the lever on "R" the car goes in nuetral. When I put it on "N" it goes into drive. When on "D" I can only assume it's in second gear. Has anyone ever had this problem? Please help.....thanks!!

#62 of 79 Toyota Coroll, 2007, Automatic Transmission
Jan 04, 2011 (3:57 am)
Recently, I purchase a Toyota Corolla, 2007 automatic transmission car (ODO: 109,000 KM). On the same day, I changed both engine and transmission oil. In D or R position, when I press the brake, the car starts moving in a smooth way. But, when I slow the car (5-10 KM/hour), generally happens at round-about, and then press the accelerator, the engine RPM increases but car behaves as it is in nutral. In that situation, I bring my car to L position, move it after pressing accelerator, and then again in D position. This happens some times very freqent (i.e., at every slow-down) and some times very rare. Can anybody please help - what would be the problem? Thanking you in anticipation.

Did this problem start after the transmission fluid change? If so was the correct amount and type of fluid used?

No, the previous owner was also feeling the same problem. My mechanic could not trace it during the test drive. But, after noticing the problem when I enquired with the previous owner, he accepted the fact I was also feeling this kind of problem.
