Question about 2001 Toyota Echo
My car won't shift out of second while the cold engine light is still on. As soon as the engine warms up and the light turns off it is fine.
I have two echo at home a 2001 and a 2004 bought new the two of them. And my sister bought a 2003 new herself. They always function that way. As long as the temperature light dont close (showing the fonction temp is ok)the trans dont go in third in normal use

Check transmission fluid and if not check your transmission screen

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.
Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

Sounds like your tranny fluid level is too low. Check tranny fluid level on dip stick when engine is warmed up and running.

If it shifts normally and then it warms up and goes backwards OK and the check enigine light works and isn't on while driving the trans has the right fluild and it's not low then the trans has bad troble. If the check engine light is on find and fix the reason Speed sensers Theres 3 leaks burnt fluild correct and see if its fixed the engine needs to run right and hit the right temperture as it runs. otherwise an expensivew rebuild is next or a used transmission.
