1993 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135k miles
For a couple weeks, my transmission was hiccuping when I would stop at a stop sign and start driving again, as well as going up hills. A few days ago, I was driving up a small, steep hill and the transmission seemed to be laboring harder than it had been. When I arrived at my destination, I turned into a driveway on a downward slope to turn around and when I put the car in reverse, I couldn't move. Rather than revving the engine, I got out and pushed the car out with assistance. Once I hit the open road and got the car in gear, it ran fine. I got a call from the person whose driveway I was stuck in and they said it looked like I was leaking transmission fluid. I haven't driven the car since, but I did purchase transmission fluid to add if it needs it. I have never checked/added fluid myself. 2 questions: Can you give me basic guidelines for checking/adding fluid? Based on what info I gave, what is your best guess as to what the problem is and how expensive (best guess) of a problem is it?
have the same problem?
