Question on gears of a 1997 Toyota Corolla

I've just bought a second hand car (right-hand drive), a 1997 Toyota Corolla G-touring Station wagon, 1300 automatic transmission, and I noticed that when I put the gear in reverse, the car would still move forward. Our driveway is sloping downhill so the car is also pointing downhill. I still have to use the hand brake before I move the car.
I remember I use to have another matic vehicle but it does not do this. Is it normal for a car to do this? If not, what could be the problem. Is there anything I should be looking out for with this type of a car? I also feel that the power is not that great when driving it, but perhaps it's just due to the 1.3 liter gutless engine..mileage is 129,000km.Hope you can help me out! Cheers!

Car only starts in reverse and only drives in neutral

Sounds like a cable to the transmission is not adjusted up right, and/or the neutral safety switch is not adjusted right, if this applies to your Toyota Corolla.

For my toyota corolla 1nz 121 (right hand drive) thereis no power supply to the radio, side rear vision mirrors nd the light in the clock? and also can not locate the fuse box inside the car?

On my right hand drive 2007 Toyota Corolla 1.6 wagon (NZ) the interior fuse box for the radio/cig lighter/mirrors etc was in behind the glovebox. I had to pull open the glovebox (squeeze in the sides to get it past the stops) and carefully unclip it from its bottom plastic hinges (take care to unclip the opening damper on the left hand side as well). Looking up I found the cover to the fuse box. I removed the cover and using the little white plastic tool from the fuse box under bonnet (and the spare 15A fuse from the same place) I replaced the blown 15A CIG fuse and it all came back to life!

I need the front left drive shaft for my 1998 Toyota L Touring wagon. Where can I get one?

Try a salvage yard of foreign vehicles first. Then a parts supply store. And last, try the dealer.
