''O/D OFF'' SIGNAL ON THE DASHBOARD

-A 1993 toyota corolla, 1.8cc. Whenever i start driving the car, the O/D OFF signal appears on the dashboard. The car also change the first gear after maybe 0.2-0.3 miles after which its ok.
The problem is more persistent when its too hot. Funny enough, when it rains/cold, the O/D off sign doesnt appear at all and the car runs smoothly.
If i drive at high speed, 60-70mph, the car sometimes jerks as if shifting from gear D to D2 gear.
I did transmission service 7 months ago. Always change the oil on time. Also had the timing belt and starter changed 6 months ago.I have had the car for 3 yrs and has been perfect. The problem has been persistent for the last 2 months.

The O/D off means your overdrive is off. Have you accidently bumped it? It could be the start of a problem with electrical system. Usually a bad ground on your O/D may cause this. Intermitten problems are the hardest to track down and fix. Do you know what overdrive does? It's a gas savings device which cuts the engine's RPM's down by something like 1/3, like a 5th gear. That's why you are experiencing the jerking on the highway. Do you have an owners manual? If not a good place to look for one is at a local salvage yard, or online even. There may be something in there to explain this to you a little better than I did. I had a frien who had a simular problem. It turned out to be a bad fuse. It wasn't blown, it was broken, and it's element would jiggle around when he would hit bumps in the road. I don't know if this helped you, but it will give you place to start looking.

4 speeds were very rare in American models. Tercel, corolla's smaller counterpart came in 4speed manuals but that was to suffice the 12valve motor. Call any Toyota dealer, give them the last 8 of vin and they can verify. Happy holidays.

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

Perhaps the shift linkage has slipped and the car is actually in neutral. Try shifting to a lower gear position.

If the car doesn't move in any gear position, you may have a problem with the shift linkage or transmission.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
