You have a problem for sure. As your Toyota is 16 years old and probably high mileage, you can try having the transmission fluid and filter changed to see if that solves the problem. If it does not, then your only recourse is to seek professional help.

When I first start up my 1995 Toyota Corolla 5-speed, there is a whirring noise. It seems more prominent when the car is cold and when I turn the steering wheel at that time. Also, the battery light has...


for the whirring noice, check for the power steering fluid level, if it's low refill with power steering fluid to the propper level. If the level its fine and the noise continues you have to tighten the engine belts via the tensioner bearings. As for the battery light it's probably letting you know that the alternator is failing, when the light comes on it means that in that precisse moment the alternator isn't charging the battery and that could lead you to a dead battery. (The alternator has a line that it's in charge of activating the battery light if this cable is loose that could make the light go on, secure that cable and if the light never comes on then the alternator is fine) Hope that helps

thermostat not opening all the way.
transmission not going into overdrive.
extra load such as trailer, boat , camper.
Brakes not releasing all the way.

06 wrangler 4 cylinder... keeps going thru spark plugs. I have changed the spark plugs twice in 2 mnths. the 1st time was loss of power in about 3rd gear so changed to platinum and then about 2 weeks later...


Pull the plugs and compare them to the pictures in repair manual, ie: Chilton's or Hayne's. May be a bad injector flooding them or an intake leak causing a lean condition.

I bought my 2005 sebring a year ago and it is due for smog check.I put 3,000 miles on the 2.7 litre engine in the last year and it now has 36,000 miles.A couple months ago the malfunction yellow light came...


the 2.7l has a sludge problem. This could cause the stalling and loss of power. There's a few fixes, the new water pump (which is part of the problem) doesn't dump coolant into the oil pan. Easy way to check is to simply drop the oil pan.

2001 cavalier codes


P0621 - indicates a failure in the alternator lamp curcuit.
P0304 - indicates a miss fire was detected in the #4 cylinder
U1040 - indicates a loss of communication with the ABS system
U1000 - Indicates a class 2 communication loss

None of those codes are relating to a transmission failure (P0700-P0702)

I would have a visual look at the transmission and verify that all electrical wires are connected and tight. Then I would have the transmission serviced if it hasn't been within the last 35,000 miles.

Have the trouble codes cleared and address the ones that return.

After that you may be looking at an internal transmission adjustment and/or repair.

Good luck.
