Had transmission rebuilt 1yearago light came on needs service it clunks in first gear and when at a stop. someone said I need a new computer true or false?


It would need more troubleshooting and info.
If it clunks continuously while at a stop, probably not the computer.

Clunk when coming to a stop


That clunking noise you get it whilst you are braking or just as you are coming. If it is whilst on breaking,check your rear brakes. if is whilst coming check for any suspension shocks,bushes.

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks


hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.

Transmission passing gear keep either getting stuck or it dont work because the motor keep idling up in first gear


this could be relative to many things, however you should check a few things before asessing the possibilities. When you put the truck in gear from park, Drive (overdrive) Should be the third notch you come to. so your in park, pull down clunk you're in reverse, clunk you're in neutral, clunk, now you are in drive. If you dont feel/ hear four notches/ clunks, you should be in overdrive. If you take off and it over revs 1st ( you shouldn't see more than 15 mph before it shifts on a stock transmission unless your flooring it and taking off fast) and then hard shifts to second gear, progresses to third gear normally, but wont progress into overdrive, it may be related to your vaccum advance, your shift linkage, or even possibly your timing. From the sounds of it, I would say vaccum advance is the likely cause, if it is otherwise in stock condition. If this is the case it could be as simple as reconnecting a vacum hose to the distributor. Should be to the left hand side of the cap, between the cap and intake manifold as you are looking at the firewall.
