Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

1993 Toyota Corolla with tranmission glitch.

I was driving along at highway speed when I suddenly lost acceleration. My tach would go up and down as I pressed the gas, but no acceleration. I pulled to a stop and shifted from Drive to Park, I drove aroung in a parking lot for a bit and drove home. Has anyone encountered this type of problem. The car is a 1993 Toyota Corolla with 212.000 miles on it. It runs like a top and I have never experienced any transmission problems. The oil level for the aoutmatic Trans is good and the oil itself did not smell funny or look bad but has never been changed. Any Ideas?

I had a 1996 corolla, the spark plug wires run through the top of the valve cover, pull them off and check for oil in the spark plug tubes, the seals go bad and oil leaks past the spark plugs and causes the engine to misfire

Hi Jax, As you managed to drive it home it must be a problem with the gearbox. A loss of fluid would cause a loss of drive. When checking the fluid level the engine must be idling with the car 'P' for park or 'N' for and the park hand brake must be fully applied. If with the engine running the oil level is low, top up and sort out the leakage ASAP, if it is between the two top marks, a loss of drive would indicate a defect inside the box, usually a drive clutch or a brake band. As a matter of interest, Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) should be replaced every year as a matter of course during a service. I think if you smell the fluid on the dip stick, it will smell burned. If the problem is the box it may be cheaper to replace it than trying to repair it, depending on labour charges where you live. Regards John

Vehicles have nothing called a brain

Your guessing & asking someone to guess for you

Have the vehicle road tested with a scan tool along, to collect
data & actually do some component testing, to find a problem,
anything,fix that & continue on

Stop using it & getting stranded

Check fuel pressure & for a failed pump

It is old so mechanical wear could be an issue also

2009 Corolla steering problem


I had this "problem" but there wasn't anything wrong with the car - it was just my driving...
The steering is just sensitive and "sporty" - try driving with a much lighter hand - even one hand, lower on the wheel. I now find the steering great and its actually very responsive.
It took 3 visits to Toyota before someone finally explained this to me but it works. People kept explaining that it "drives like a Corolla" but couldn't tell me how to drive it better.
Mind you the car is still horrible on windy days but I don't have same issues in normal highway driving.
A year ago I was actually renting cars for road trips instead of driving my 09 Corolla S I was that freaked out about the steering but I'm now completely comfortable driving the car. I do have to warn everyone that drives my car on the highway though...they never believe me at first but always concede that I'm right and that a light hand makes a huge difference.
