Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

I can't get the shifter out of 3rd gear. It runs fine in third gear except for the obvious problems that would occur when staring off and running at high speed. I'm pretty handy but I don't know where to start. Whats wrong?

    On a rating of 1-10. 10 being the most difficult, where would you rate this repair in regards to difficulty, time and cost for a DIY'r? Is this the only thing that could be wrong. It is a manual transmission.

If this is a manual transmission,the synchroniser in the transmission for third gear has to be replaced,if it is automatic,there may be a shift solenoid bad.

Check first the fluid if it needs replacing or you may need to add more. Dirt in the fluid may be a sign that the valve for the 3rd gear may be dirty or full of debris. If one gear is dirty normally the next gears are affected.

When it shift from third gear to second gear it makes an abrupt shift. This problem is only from third to second gear, the other gears shift nice and quiet. The transmission is new only 3 months old.


Hopefully this Transmission is still under warranty?
If its a stick the shifter or schronizers could be the culprit. If the vehicle is an automatic,shift solenoid, shifter, problems in 2nd and 3rd circuitry (band or clutch not releasing properly ),manual shift valve .
Take it back to whom ever did the rebuild or transmission work tell them the problem .
Business is so demanding these days they will probably do the right thing.
