What is the function of L in corolla s gear


Hi, I have spent some time researching this, and have come to the following evaluation:
Assuming your Toyota Corolla S is an automatic:

P, R, N, D, these are all letters on your automatic transmission that you're probably familiar with. However, you might rarely, if at all, shift into "L" on the gear shift. So what does this letter stand for? And should you use it?
L stands for low gear. When your car is in drive, or D, the automatic transmission will shift through the gears as your speed increases. When your car is in low, or L, the transmission won't shift. Instead, it remains in a low gear, and less fuel is injected into the engine. This gives you less speed, but what you sacrifice in speed you make up for in engine torque. Basically, using low gear gives the engine more power.
Torque is useful when you're towing something with your automatic. Towing requires more torque, but if you tow in drive it puts more strain on your engine as the transmission cycles through the gears. Keeping it in low gear lets you keep the torque, which makes towing easier, and reduces the stress on your engine. Another reason you might use low gear is for driving up a hill in order to give your engine the power to get up the hill without over-stressing it. Low gear is also useful for driving in snow or on icy roads, because it reduces your speed and gives you more control over the vehicle.

I hope this helped, please feel free to write a testimonial if it did :)

I have an 96 grand jeep cherokee and it is currently stuck in 4wd part time. When i shift it to N and put it in 2wd then shift to drive it does nothing but make a humming type noise. same thing happens w/...


first this is a shift on the fly system which means you shift it in and out of 4wd when moving and not stopped . 4 low yes stopped. second the diameter of your tires must be all the same plus or minus 1/8 inch. third if you drive in part time you will be causing binding when turning at all on dry pavement. this can break things like cv shafts and or the transfer case chain.

2000 VW Passat Wagon V6, 79,000 miles, automatic There's a **** when slowing down to a stop from 2nd to 1st. Otherwise, the car drives like a charm. Any suggestions?


thanks.didnt realise that j... is a no no (in england a j... is a fool.)
back to your harsh downshift.as first is a crawler gear(very low ratio),you will feel the change,but if the clunk is feed back from a driveshaft...
try this,without using any gas put car in drive and let it accelerate to max speed,then braking VERY gently let the car down shift to a stop,you should not feel any clunk unless its a driveshaft.remember very gentle on brake.....

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Put a new transmission in and now the car from 0 to 30 has a slow start. but after that it pulls like its suppose to.


Try putting the transmission in low or 1st gear manually shift it down and try taking off as you accelerate shift it manually to 2 then drive. Did it take off like it should when you put it into low and then shift up or did you feel more power when it was in low if so it sounds like the transmission is not going into low gear but taking off in maybe second gear or even drive. When it takes off in any other gear but low it will start slow and sluggish and as you begain to gain speed it will start feel normal but thats because the speed matches the gear you in at that point.If my assistance was helpful please take the time to rate my assistance thank you.

My automatic escort will not shift out of first gear. I will drive in first gear, slip it into neutral, then back into drive, and will get second gear for about five seconds. Any ideas?


Try replacing Speed sensor.I have 95 Escort that while driving for about 20 miles would shift into low gear and not shift back into higher gears.After letting it sit for awhile it would drive fine for about 20 miles then do the same thing.Had the speed sensor replaced and works fine now.
