Question about 1993 Toyota Corolla
It's an auto, can feel that it pull back when changing gear, esp from 1 to 2 gear. recently replaced 2nd hand transmission, think need adjustment, anyone knows how to do the adjustment or some other suggestion?
I agree with jdawson....I think that what you're dealing with there is a defective box....The flush idea is a very good one....It's advisable, even when you have a new box, to flush out an auto box at least once every year, to keep the operation smooth and wear to a minimum....I can't recommend any specific chemicals, as where I am, we don't have any available.... A good meathod to determine if it's over-due, pull the dip stick out and smell the oil...if it smells burned it's over due....
The method we use here in Africa, is to use the same ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) we'll be using to run the vehicle with during normal running....drain the fluid and refill with new fluid....If you're in a place where you get a replacement filter, change that too.....To do that you'll have to drop the oil pan....You'll see the filter mounted under the valve body assembly, It may be fastened there with two or three (or more bolts....Keep in mind that, as with all auto engineering, cleanliness is a top requirement, more especially if you open an auto box....Re-assemble the filter housing and re-fit the pan...After refilling with new fluid and fitting a new filter (if possible) Next step is to chock the wheels, apply the brake and then with your foot kept ******* the brake pedal, start the engine and change into each gear...Count to three for each change from P move into R..N..D..Over drive off (if fitted)...3...2...and then up again until you complete the cycle....Do the same thing again two more times and then switch off the engine wait about twenty minutes to cool and then drain and refill again....If the oil smelled very burned at the start, it may be a good idea to replace the filter a second time....
....If that doesn't work I think you'll need to take the box to specialists to have it re-built....It sounds to me as if the valve body needs attention and if that's so you'll need special tools and a lot of experience....
Good luck and best wishes

I DO NOT THINK THAT IT IS GOING TO BE AND ADJUSTMENT ISSUE, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE. THE FIRST THING THAT I WOULD RECOMEND IS TO HAVE A COMPLETE TRANSMISSION FLUSH PREFORMED. MAKE SHURE IT IS A FLUSH AND NOT AND DRAIN AND FILL. RECOMEND FINDING A SHOP THAT USES BG PRODUCTS. BG HAS THE BEST CHEMICALS ON THE MARKET.
