1992 Corolla Transmission Damaged

Asked by Jul 26, 2015 at 06:41 AM about the 1992 Toyota Corolla STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The wife banged our old 1992 Corolla up over a highish kerb [RHD] to avoid a 'tail-gater'.
She then drove it home OK, but from the next morning it won't move forwards or
backwards !  Engine just revs.  
Obviously major damage....but where to start ?

Check the transmission fluid. Could be just a damaged pan. If there's a hole in the pan that has allowed all the fluid to leak out the car will do as you describe. If that's what happened, replace the pan and refill with fluid. HTH. -Jim

you can also verify manual lever actuates while a helper shifts the ranges, see if cable operated, could get knocked off, broke free and out of range but actuating some still. ? range adjust on some cables can pop apart and need a strap added to hold them once corrected
