Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

1996 Toyota Corolla clutch will not engage into any gear

I was driving on the highway the other day and all of a sudden the car started losing speed. I pulled over and found that I cannot get the car (manual transmission) into any gear, including reverse. Car has 304,000 miles, and I have never done anything to the clutch, including changing the transmission gear oil (I know, very negligent). I checked the clutch fluid reservoir, and it was fine. A mechanic said that the clutch needs to be rebuilt ($600 estimate). I don't have the skill level to rebuild it myself. Am I stuck with having a mechanic repair it, or are there any suggestions of things I could do myself?

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla with 36,000 miles Transmission now "jumps" into gears

hi,
when the check engine light comes on, your car goes into a mode where instead of everything being normal, things are forced, to try and compensate for something else being wrong. It most likely does need a new timing belt, and a complete tuneup INCLUDING plugs and wires. we have a 1984 toyota corolla and it purrs like ground rice, I suggest the tuneup to continue proper rice production.

SOURCE: 2006 Corolla: Check engine light is on - gears shift is not smooth

GOOD NEWS!!!!
You have an issue that Toyota knows about; there is a programming problem with the ECM in the vehicle, and Toyota has released a Tech Service Bulletin (TC015-07) to cure your problem.
You probably have a DTC code of P-2716...The ECM needs replaced with an updated unit.
PLUS: this repair should be covered for 96 months of use, or up to 80,000 miles. The replacement ECU will be installed totally for free. Call your local Toyota dealer & get an appointment.

My clutch wont engage gears on my 98 corrola at low speed or at idle. I also cannot change gear. This has only just started. Can you tell me what the problem is?


Could be the clutch master or slave cylinder, or the clutch disc. The disc is not disengaging from the flywheel.

Car turns off when engaging clutch to a lower gear


Check the following:
- Thrust bearing, clutch.
TEST: Pull up the hand brake. Start the engine and let it at idle speed.
Depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, while keeping the clutch pedal depressed. If the gear lever hesitates or produce any abnormal noise, replace the clutch thrust bearing.
- If the gear lever shifts smoothly, clean the throttle body, idle air control valve and perform idle speed learn learn procedure.
- Check the valve clearance.

My clutch works sometimes and sometimes it don't. I was driving came to a stop, tried to go it sounded like the clutch popped out of gear or something broke. My car wouldn't go so I got towed. but...


A clutch that's failing doesn't behaves like that - it slowly starts slipping until it fails completely and definitely. If it would break suddenly (like when the pressure plate would snap) the noise and the vibrations it would generate would be unbearable.
No, in your case something is failing inside the transmission/gearbox - most likely in the command forks and their locking pins. The gearbox will have to taken off the car and dismantled to investigate and fix that, and it will be expensive.

1992 toyota corolla merino 4a-ge engine. just stopped running while driving and won't start again. have replaced almost all electric components and still nothing. at ignition starter seems to spin but not...


get a new starter or starter selinoid, sounds like its hanging up possible stripped gear on starter of flywheel. If its a stick shift you can always put key in "run" position and have a couple friends push you in neutrel then when you gain speed put it in 3 gear and dump the clutch, if it starts you know the starter, selinoid, or flywheel is faulty

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
