Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla

Hi! Shifting out of 1st gear is hard and sometimes sticks, have to almost stop to shift into second. I checked the linkage, fluid levels in both the tranny and clutch pedal. I have not checked the shift mechanism under the console.

It sounds like a hydrallic clutch problem.If there's no external leak (clear fluid under the car or by your feet under the dash) then there could be an internal cylinder leak (when the plunger inside the cylinder no longer seals resulting in loss of hydrallic pressure).Fluid levels will be normal.This is common resulting in the shifter sticking in gear.

  • does the FSM stall test pass? in 1st.? and reverse?
  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.
the TCM shifts to second with good inputs to the TCM
if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

Stick in 1st gear have to pull it hard all others are fine


Hi,
There two possibility of breakdown in that part, one is the cable might have loosen up and needs some adjustment in the shifting stick gear base. A local mechanic can adjust it and check why it become loose.
The second is, synchronizer gear failure. That part is inside the transmission, it is made of brass, and the gear teeth might have worn out. To check it, needs to pull down the whole transmission and opening it to check the gears. Replacing that gear is a must!
That gear broke down when somebody forcefully shifting the gear in first without the clutch assistant.
Forcing your car to start at 2nd gear from stop will wear down your clutch assembly, so be very carefull don't over rev the engine.
Hope that helps you.
Thanks for using FixYa!

WONT SHIFT BACK TO 1ST GEAR HAVE TO MANUALLY SHIFT BACK TO 1ST GEAR WHEN STOPPING


The first thing to do is check the fluid level, make sure engine is warm and car is level, check fluid, if oil is fine then you may need a trany, i would also take a good look at the fluid and make its not brunt or dirty, sometimes ive found that a BG trany service helps in this cases, you may have a dirty or sticking part in the valve body, the does a good job cleaning trany, its worth a shot, hope this helps. note, a 1993 also has a passing gear cable make sure thats connected and adjusted correctly the is located at the throtle body linkage.

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears


The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.
