1998 Toyota Corolla • 250,000 miles


I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla with a Transmission problem. First, it suddenly started leaking a large amount of transmission fluid and Second, it lost the ability to shift into Drive (or any gear for that matter). The car still turns on, but obviously can't go anywhere with this issue. What could be the problem? I would like to know if this is a couple hundred dollar repair or a couple thousand dollar repair before I spend a ton of money on having it towed 2 ways, to and from the garage. Don't want to spend thousands of dollars when the car isn't worth it.

Thanks in advance!

As I mentioned earlier, it is not possible to provide you an estimate without knowing the source of the problem. It might be a simple fix or an expensive one costing more than $1000. Even if we know what needs to be replaced, the cost can still vary depending on location.

It is best to get it checked and get an estimate locally.
