Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla
I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla with 4 speed auto overdrive transmission. Whenever I first drive the car after it has been sitting for a few hours or more, the transmission refuses to shift into overdrive. After the first couple of mile, the transmission shifts into overdrive normally. What is the problem? the car has only 6500 miles on it. The dealer says it is "normal" for the car to do that. ...I personally don't think that is true! This problem happens in both cold and warm weather 2005 Toyota Corolla CE Automatic with 36,000 miles. The "check engine" light now on. Transmission "jumps" quickly when shifted into "reverse". After you shift into "drive" it "jumps" quickly again when you hit 10 mph, and you can feel jumps when it shifts automatically at the next gear shifts. The vehicle still functions well and all gauges register normal, including the "temperature" gauge. Does the timing chain need to be adjusted? What about a bad sensor? I didn't change out the spark plugs at 30,000 miles but I don't think that's a factor in this. Other than this strange experience the car is in excellent condition.
Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.
96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
