Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I have a 2006 Corolla with 22K miles. Last week my check engine light came on and the car (automatic) was having a slight difficulty changing gears. There is a slight delay in the gear shift and then the car jumps a bit as the shift takes place. I am suspecting a transmission issue but want to confirm two things: 1. Anything that I can do w/o taking the car into the shop. 2. Can I drive on this for a few days or do I need to get into the shop urgently?
Thanks in advance for any help.
You have an issue that Toyota knows about; there is a programming problem with the ECM in the vehicle, and Toyota has released a Tech Service Bulletin (TC015-07) to cure your problem.
You probably have a DTC code of P-2716...The ECM needs replaced with an updated unit.
PLUS: this repair should be covered for 96 months of use, or up to 80,000 miles. The replacement ECU will be installed totally for free. Call your local Toyota dealer & get an appointment.

I had the same problem- check engine light,hard shifts. The problem was the transmission control module (TCM). Some of the Corollas have bad transmission control modules- mine was replaced under warranty.

The check engine light is trying to tell you that something iis wrong. Takeit to Auto zone and have the codes read anD it wiss tell you what area to check.
Sounds like you need 2 get a new transmission!!!
There are pages and pages and items that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked for codes with a scan tool. After repair light can be shut off with scan tool.
Transmission jumping hard is the malfunction causing check engine light to come on,most likely its the tcc solonoid causing this or a possibility of causing this.
it has to be repaired urgently if you know how to replace the transmisson you can do this on your own.but if dont know taking it to the repair service center is much advisable.
