Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1994 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

HI. I AM HAVING A PROBLEM WHEN I REVERSE. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH THE CAR STOPS OR BECOMES VERY DIFFICULT TO REVERSE ALMOST AS THOUGH THE LEFT FRONT WHEEL LOCKS AND WANTS TO STOP ROTATING. THEN WHEN I PUT THE CAR IN DRIVE IT MOVES FORWARD SLUGGISHLY. SOMETHING THEN SNAPS AND FREES UP THE LEFT WHEEL AND THE CAR THEN MOVES MORE FREELY.

QUESTIONS IS - WHAT CAN BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM AND HOW DO I SOLVE IT.

Check front CV axle, look at outer boot for rips/tears.

The CV joint is new so is the rod ends and the wheel bearings. Can this be a transmission problem by chance and if it is what in the transmission would cause this problem?

When you look under car, is there a drain plug for trans and differential?

Yes there was and there was no evidence of leaks from them. What next?

The rear plug is the differential, fluid leaks from the axle seals.

The fill plug is on firewall side and hard to get to. Remove plug on level surface and stick finger in, you should feel lube, if not fill to bottom of fill plug.
