Hi. When last did you check the transmission fluid levels? I had a similar problem a few years back and the problem was there was very little or no transmission fluids. Please check. Thanks.

    I figured it out. One of the sensors on the bottom is broken and popped out of place, I just put it back and it worked fine again.

don't panic just yet . you could have a bad rear tranny seal and the fluid leaked out, It happens, the car won't move since so much fluid leaked out,, I'd take it to get it checked, because if you just refill the fluid its just going to run out again, If it was showing no signs of slippage or jerking before , then with any luck it will be something less than a complete tranny!!

SOURCE: Hi I have a 1996 Toyota corolla. Te transmission

It differs with use but for a rule of thumb you can look at the fluid on the dipstick against a white cloth and if it brown to black looking not a reddish color you should have it serviced.Either a drain and fill or a complete trans flush if it is black.Your trans will thank you

Transmission kicks hard when put in drive

The problem is the transmission I'd check the fluid levels. Shops are notorious for not filling fluids to the proper levels. If that isn't the problem which it may not be Then some1 did a very bad job on the trans. The fact that you have been having problems from day 1 is not good. Even so that could be a low fluid problem so I'd check that first. Hope this helps.
