I can only offer advise if it's a manual tranny... but if it is, i had the same problem with my 04 f150 about 4 months ago... if the clutch pedal seems to have alot of travel before it engages, more than likely, your slave cylinder is leaking and your fluid reservoir has gone dry... the slave cylinder is located on the inside of the bell housing directly on the input shaft and the fluid reservoir is mounted to the firewall under the hood just above the steering column (it's a little thing only as big around as a silver dollar and about 2 in. deep, check the fluid level)... it is about a 20 hr job for someone inexperienced such as myself, with a friend helping and access to a vehicle lift... but it did fix MY problem... now if it's an automatic, i could probably guess you might need a trans fluid flush and change, as well as the filter.. very possibly your filter could be clogged, which could very well cause this problem..

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


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.

It sounds pretty right on..

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

I would pull the electrical connector off the side of the trans and blow it out with compressed air, the connectors are not water proof just water resistant
