Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

'98 Toyota Corolla 5 speed

I've put in many clutch over my life time but this one is got me stumped. I can't get the transaxle installed in the new clutch. I have the cluch disk centered correctly ( it used no pilot bearing, strange ) but I can't get the input shaft of the transaxle started in the cluch disk. Been trying for days, everytime I pull the clutch disk out to inspect its bured up from all the attempting of installing the transaxle, (cheap auto zone cluch ) I've forced the engine forward to give me more room also. Seems the right transaxle output shaft is right up to the engine, maybe thats the problem ? Could sure use some advice. Gene

Hi Gene,

The way that we install the box's is to remove the spyder housing....You can lever it out with a large screw driver....Another thing to check...the clutch plate....Have you fitted it onto the input shaft (spigot shaft) and tried it for size, to make sure you've been supplied with the correct replacement? Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, but it can happen!....After you've fitted the box, refit the spyder housing, using a plank of wood and a good clout....It fits and locks in with a spring clip....

Hope that this is a help to you....

Best regards Johngee10

Where is the bolt drain transmission of toyota corolla ve 98


There are two plugs. The drain plug you will see by looking at the tranny from driver side near the drive axle. The fill plug is the one you stick your finger in and is somewhere below the clutch slave cylinder. Undo them with a 24mm socket. And yes, open the fill plug first.

98 corolla, how do I swap my automatic transmission to a five speed tranny? and what parts will i need?


This is a heavy job. This must be done in a service center. The entire automatic transmission assembly
will be taken off from the engine.before the other standard 5 speed transmission can be installed. The
car will be lifted up to dismount the old one. This also need a mobile lift to hold the dismounted auto transmission and bring it down The mobile lift will also bring the 5 speed tranny up and mounted to the
engine, and the propeller shaft. But you must have the compatible 5 speed tranny first.

How do you replace clutch in 1997 toyota corolla? Do you need to replace entire clutch assy or just the clutch disc?


I see. sounds like you need a new clutch. OK, here is a step by step guide to follow. it will help with the removal and installation of your new clutch.

Remove the Old Clutch Step1 Verify that your vehicle's clutch is the source of your problems and not the pedal-arm bushings, activating cables or the slave-master cylinder. Step2 Unhook the positive battery cable, the clutch cable or hydraulic slave cylinder to get the transaxle ready for easy removal. Eliminate anything that may hinder your efforts, including exhaust pipes and the speedometer. Step3 Secure your car in a safe position before jacking up the front end. Step4 Stabilize the engine with a jack below the oil pan. Remove the transaxle by undoing at least one engine mount. Step5 Separate the engine from the transaxle by removing the bolts that surround the flywheel bell housing. Step6 Push the transaxle away from the engine until the input shift clears the pressure plate. Step7 Disengage the bolts surrounding the pressure plate and take it and the clutch disc out. Check to see if the flywheel's friction surface is scored, checked or has hot spots. Remove, machine and reinstall the flywheel, if needed. Step8 Examine the pilot bearing (bushing) located at the flywheel's center to be sure the needle bearings are lubricated and that there's no galling. Also look for any oil leaking around the rear main engine seal. Replace the clutch Step1 Follow the instructions for replacing your car's clutch carefully to avoid having to remove the transaxle. Step2 Check that the transaxle's input shaft isn't leaking; replace if needed. Step3 Take out the flywheel and the old seal and install a new seal. Install a New Clutch Step1 Clean the crankshaft flange before putting in the flywheel. With the flywheel on top of the flange, secure the bolts in a star formation to the specified torque for your vehicle. Step2 Install the clutch disc and pressure plate. Prior to putting in the transaxle, attach the new release bearing to the release fork. The fork should move freely. Step3 Hoist the transaxle into position and move it forward until the input shaft glides into the clutch disc's spindled hole. Do not apply force. Step4 Reinstall any bolts or mounts that were removed to replace your car's clutch. Grab the transaxle, release the jack and lower your vehicle. Step5 Consider replacing your car's clutch cable. If you don't replace the cable at least adjust it for the right amount of free-play. Step6 Confirm that your clutch's self-adjusting action is performing correctly by depressing the slave cylinder's piston into its bore. Step7 Drive your car to be sure your clutch is working properly.
