overdrive failure

Asked by Mar 10, 2007 at 12:51 PM about the 1988 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1988 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan with 86k and for about 300 miles the overdrive worked intermittently then stopped altogether, otherwise runs great?

1 Answer

30,975

Could just be that there was too much wear and tear on the overdrive gear. Sounds like a mechanic is going to have to take a look at it. That is if you really, really need it. If it runs fine without it I would say just go with it.
