Question about Toyota Corolla
Year, make and trans, all in one post , 1st time in 3000, cheers to you.! way to go.
the A/T (protection)
is fluid level ok? (op guide shows how) do not over fill !
never drive a slipping A/t
now many A/T starting in early 90s have the first tranny brains.
called TCMs. trans,control modules)
it also has what is called limphome mode, on failure you lose gears, a gear can be cut, to to stop further slippage and heat damage.
and all TCM have error codes. but how to get them varies by year and car make .
the early TCM has flash codes, today its part of OBD2 port and is now scan codes. (easy)
ill try to look up toy way. (im a lover of all 1996 cars.. and not post 2006.)
toy calls this ETC, electronic trans controls)
6 fuses in total to make this work. but is part of ECU
ahh very progressive, the TCM/ETC is inside the ECU.
3 soleniod drivers to got Tranny to sequence the soleniods. inside same
id bet any scan tool will read your tranny codes, P07xx codes DTCs are tranny codes, so use a scan tool (any OBD2 tool)
there is a OD line, that runs overdrive and clutch lock up with a relay. are you sure 3rd is missing and not the lockup?
The TCM will in fact tell you, (DTC) bad OD lock,, bad soleniods.
or slippage, best look first. for DTCS stored, pendings or freeze frames showing P07xx codes or others. related.
here is the schem.

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.

there is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you step on the brake pedal.there is by the shifter a little tab that can be popped out with a small screwdriver,and using your key,put into the hole and the mechanical device will release the shifter.
it is called a shift lock override

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.
