1993 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 206000 miles
i have a 93 corolla, all I can afford at the time. I have basically put all new parts in it including engine and transmission in june 09. My drivers side caliper was sticking this weekend and my dad put a new one on. The next day I was driving it and it was making a whining noise and some clunking. I was about to drive it home and put it in reverse when it clunked hard, the shifting lever was real stiff, I then put it in drive and it wouldnt move. We had to put it in reverse and push it back in the driveway. The fluids were checked the other day and it was fine, then we checked them after this and it was low. Then this morning, the next day after this happened, the car would move again but I was tooafraid to drive it. It is doing some of the things the last transmission did when it went, the whistling and tight shifter. But last time it would clunk so hard when moving at all this time its not.
Does this sound like the transmission is shot, or able to be saved. I just dont understand it since I only put it in 4 months ago and drove about 5000 miles on it.
I always thought that japanese cars were good cars but all I have had are problems.
