I have a 1992 Toyota Paseo, it has 114,000+ miles on the car itself, only 60,000 miles on the motor, when the new motor was put in the car the Throttle Position Sensor was cracked. Would this have an effect on how the car shifts between third and forth gear? This is a new problem as of about a month ago. I have owned the car since August 2008 and have not had a problem with it shifting like this before, except when it is cold and not warmed up yet. When the car gets to between 35 and 40mph it starts to hesitate and car pulls foward when it is trying to shift into the next gear.

Re: Shifting problem with Toyota Paseo
The throttle position switch has some effect on shifting but should effect both hot and cold. It is normal for Toyota vehicles to lock out the overdrive upshift (3rd to 4th gears) until coolant temperature reaches approx 180 degrees f.

Engine Won't Crank Due To Starter on Toyota Paseo ... My car is turning over, getting gas and all my spark plugs have fire, but it will not start. Wh... 1993 Toyota Paseo ...car won't start, problem isn't starter but i think it's in the wiring. i can start ...
It is not the EGR, it can be a head gasket, only a trained pro can check this and know for sure. You will need the system pressure tested and see if any of the cooling system components is leaking coolant.
If it is a standard/manual shift transmission, the clutch slave or master cylinder is probably going bad. If you continue to drive it like this it can damage the transmission. I would get these parts checked out ASAP to prevent transmission damage. This is a minor repair compared to replacing the transmission.
If it is an automatic transmission grinding and not shifting, the problem will be inside the transmission itself, and it should be repaired or replaced.
You want a new one. It will cost you about sixty if your lucky. Hard to get it in and out of the small engine but you can do it. Its like three or four bolts and two wires. It attched to the transmission
if your starter has the clip style connector on the starter itself (not the solenoid) it is the cold weather package starter. they have different starters for automatics, manuals, california models, and cold weather package. i ran into the same problem.
