Hi boneshaker9,
Is your vehicle an automatic or manual....What covers were removed and what was messed and monkeyed with inside...and what inside are you reffering to....the inside of the box....the car...or the engine compartment.... Please let me know, so that I can get an idea of where to start from....

Best regards Johngee10

  • Hi boneshaker9,

    You didn't answer, so I'll continue with this advice for you....If your vehicle is a rear wheel drive, the only way in which the transmission can have been effected, is the gear selector lever may have been mis adjusted....You may not have the gear you select....

    If it was the inside of the gear box that they played with, they would have had to remove the box from the car....even if it was a front wheel drive with the engine mounted east west, same thing applies.

    What I'd suggest to you, is to check the cooling system for damage....this will also include the cooling system for the transmission....Look for any damaged or squashed pipes, any place where there could be a restriction of coolant....

    You may have a coincidence on your hands....The over heating may be unrelated to the vandalism....Whatever help you need get in touch and we'll do our best to give to you

    Best regards Johngee10

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.

If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

Low power on toyota 2007 camry. Do I need to reset by reinstalling the new battery?

The fuse and relay box is located in the engine bay area. Please lift up the cover by pressing front and rear locks, and find the ECTS fuse (10 Amp). Location and diagram of the fuse is printed underside the cover. Remove the fuse, check the fusible link. Replace it with the same rating, if it is blown.
After replacing the fuse, remove the EFI fuse in the same relay box or remove the battery terminal for 10 Sec.
Fix the fuse back to its place or reconnect the battery terminal.
Start the car. It should now perform well.
If the problem persists, retrieve the error code and put it here.
Hope that works.

Broken headlight fixture

the oper, guide covers the lamp , read it. in glove box
but you failed to say the context
collision, damage, what../?????????? context of actions????
the whole fixture, is in the FSM , buy the book read it, keep it.
or log in to read that.

the fixture has mounting screws.
gain access to those screws.
my guess is you have no idea how to gain access.
well there are 3 ways (random ) for all cars. GENERIC answer.
front grills off. bingo front access.
top down cars, there is a cover (open hood) and see cover remove it
and hands go down to screws
or from inside bottom of fenders. (and some have covers here..

try next time posting year,car. and country.
some countries, have vary radical different lighting.
so no year, no country no joy.

Side mirror and radio not funtioning at all toyota corolla 2001

Probably a blown fuse. Find the fuse box, (make sure car if not running, key out of ignition), open fuse box cover. The cover usually has a description of what fuse does each power task. Find the radio/ACC fuses and removing them one at a time (don't have 2 out at once), hold them up to the light and look for a broken band inside the fuse. If you find one, replace it with a new one of the same size and amperage. It is the cheapest place to start.

My heat worked fine last night an today i start the car an the heat box is digital it say the heat is on but it pushs out nothing just alil cold air so i turn it on hi an it does nothing i dunno where the...

If the digital box is on, Your fuse and relay are ok, first check your heater core houses both had to have the same temperature, engines temperature, one of them has a valve with an internal door every time you press th e heat in you digital climate control, this valve move allowing hot coolant recirculate across your heater core then the blower give you heat, if this valve don't move then there is two reasons, valve stuck, or bad actuator, what you got to do is gently disconnect the cable from the valve and see if the valve move with your fingers , move it in opposite directions and in every try go inside the car and see if you have heat if you do the problem is inside the car climate control box or actuator, or broken cable.

I have 1995 toyota camry with 2.2 liter engine.I installed a new oil pan gasket,and valve cover gasket,cause there was alot of oil leaking from that area.All the work was done about two months ago.there...

I have the same car and the same problem. I can see the oil shooting out at the (upside down) rear, right side of the oil pan. This side of the oil pan is covered by a piece of plastic foam. There are no bolts on this side of the pan. Toyota recommends grey Formagaskit to seal the pan. The natural flow for this leak is all over the bell housing. The piece of plastic foam is attached to bell housing inspection cover. Good Luck!!!

Took the cover of gear shift inside car, little spring popped out. Replaced but now car will not pick any gears up at all, appears to remain in neutral although feels like its going into gear.

SOUNDS pretty simple. remove the cover one more time and inspect that the end of the shifter has properly seated in the shift fork. what repairs were made. just a leak? slop? that little spring is just to keep tension.

How do you remove shifter being stuck at park for a 1990 toyota camry?

For the short term and as a temporary measure, the shift lever can be released by depressing shift lock override button which is in a small hole next to the shifter, typically covered with a small piece of plastic.

A permanent fix is needed though. The transmission shifter has a safety interlock. You must depress the brake to release the interlock in-order to shift into a drive or reverse gear. This system is powered by electricity. The fuse may be blown. Check the fuses for faults. The brake pedal / brake light circuit must be functioning in order to put the car in gear. Check the blue 10amp brake light fuse. Make sure the wiring in the trunk does not have breaks that may cause the fuse to blow
