Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla
Takes a very long time for the automatic to shift to 'overdrive'. Runs ok, temp guage looks ok but I suspect its not being registered as hot. Could it be a thermostat issue - if it is, where is it?
The overdrive does not engage until the coolant reaches 177 degrees F. If your thermostat is sticking open, or staying "open too long", your OD will not engage. The thermostat is in a round housing, at the end of the large rad hose, on the end of the cylinder head. Hope this helps, and Thnaks for choosing FixYa!
