My speedometer don't work I've replaced the transmission speed sensor and it fixed the odometer but did nothing to help the speed indicator to know how fast I'm driving. What else do I need to check?


Its possible that your ECU electronic control unit is failing to send info from the trans to your dashboard or perhaps wiring is faulty (common at trans plug). Use a code reader to scan for any problems with ECU - It could also be a fuse...

I Have a 1993 GEO Prizm that the O/D light is flashing and it starts off I 2nd or 3rd gear.. the codes that was pulled are 26 and 36.. how do I fix this problem?


1.6L or 1.8L? engine.there are 3 engines,
1.6L with one injector and one with 4 and the 1.8L with 4.
and the ecu is different on each.

tell which terminals were jumped. and which lamp flashed?
Corolla - jump DLC terminals TE1 and E1 with a short lead 1

which transaxle.?
A131, A240i, a241h, or A245e, (the e trans is tcm shifted)
The 7AFE engine has the TCM and ECU in same box.
the 1.6L single injector engine runs a pure hydraulic trans.(no TCM)
TCM's engine/trans setups.
the 4speed, has 3 ranges switches, and 3 solenoids. and speed sensors., the MPI engine ecu shifts the transmission the TBI engine does not. MPI has 4 injectors, this your car?

if the OD flashes driving, this means TCM sees errors.
can be bad sensor inputs to the TCM
or bad shifter switch, (really they are sensors too, status switches)
and the TCM can see bad speed sensors.
the TCM can also flash if the solenoids are dead. or transmission slips. (nut shell answers)
IF it skips gears, the TCM may be in limphome, they do that on errors. to protect the transmission for damage.


first, off , prizm is just a toy corolla and those are really corolla

best page on car., but i cant find your codes? are you sure you counted correclty? 26 is too rich running. (fuel ratio) 36 I can not find anywhere, (stumped me)

What years will interchange transmission with 1997 toyota tacoma


If you can locate the trans serial number that would narrow down any options. Its usually stamped into a flat spot on the trans or on a stamped metal tag on one of the bolts. I would expect only one from the same size/ spec/ model/ year/ production run would be a swap. You don't say what is wrong? Is it not fixable?

Can i swap transmissions


It would be very difficult to do primarily due to the differences in how they bolt to the engine, the driveshaft design and length and the electronic controls. I'd stay with the transmission it came with.

I'm wondering if i can swap a 3 speed auto transmission for a 4 speed with overdrive in a 1996 corolla standard model. Whether I'd have to change computers or if its even worth it.


The guys that know if this is possible are the wrecking yard guys. You need to call a few of them and see if it is possible. You will need the new flywheel, clutch and clutch release items.

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

How do u fill the tranny differential on a 1996 toyota corolla?


It depends on if have you have a 3 speed automatic, 4 speed automatic, or a manual transmission.

The 4 speed and manual tranny share their fluid with the differential so if you fill the tranny you fill the differential at the same time.

The 3 speed differential does not share its fluid with the tranny. To fill or check the fluid on the 3 speed automatic you will need to get underneath the car. The fill bolt faces the firewall side of the transmission. It is about 4 inches above the differential drain plug. You will need a fluid pump and hose to get the fluid into the fill hole. The fluid you will need is Dexron tranny fluid.

Automatic Transmission problem


You didnt specify which transmission your car has,the 3 speed,model A131L,or the 4 speed A245E.Both transmissions basically have the same elements applied internally when acquiring Reverse gear.Forward clutch off,Direct clutch and Low Reverse clutch applied.The major difference between the two available transmissions for your car is,the 3 speed trans is totally hydraulic,no electronic controls,while the 4 speed trans is totally electronic control.Check the fluid level first,regardless of trans model.If your car has the 3 speed trans,it is likely an internal trans problem.Same thing for the 4 speed model,with the exception that the problem could be the electronic solenoids malfunctioning.The solenoids should be deemed defective or good,before a determination is made.
