Try to change to cooling sensor because it helps with the cooling of the transmission fluid or you could try Lucas Transmission slip it has helped me a lot with my transmission or it could be just a cooling problem

Place car on drive, while holding brake down jumps. When you drive it's stuck on 3rd gear.


Your transmission has failed. Not uncommon for a car that is 12 years old, especially if the car has ever overheated (since the transmission fluid is cooled through the radiator). Take the vehicle to a transmission repair shop, and they will likely recommend replacing the transmission with a rebuilt one.

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)

'low coolant light' flashes all the time and then 'service engine soon'


These problems may or may not be related. The Check coolant light means that the coolant level in your radiator is low. If you have checked it and it is not low, then the sensor is most likely defective. The low coolant sensor will not turn the Check Engine light on - even if the coolant really is low. There are many things that can cause the Check Engine light to come on. You will have to scan your Engine Computer to find out why it has been turning the light on.

I did have a problem on one of these cars one time where the Check Engine light was coming on and there were several codes for the Throttle Position Sensor(TPS) and the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor and the car ran really bad. The Check Coolant light was also on. After checking it out I found that the coolant level sensor was shorting out the 5 volt reference circuit (VREF) from the computer and causing the whole problem. Replacing the coolant level sensor fixed the car.

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.
