2002 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Okay, here is the situation. My wifes 2002 Toyota Corolla CE was a victim of the famous engine gelling. My brother and I replaced the engine with a motor from a junk yard which previously had a four speed transmission. Her car has a three speed transmission. We installed the new motor with the original three speed and it leaked tranny fluid. The transmission did not leak prior to the engine replacement so we believed we may have damaged the front pump seal in the process. So we pulled the tranny and replaced the front pump and cv axle seals. Yet again it leaked. We have now repeated this process three times with no success. My question is are there any differences between the three speed and four speed engines blocks (i.E. Flywheel shims, torque converter, spacing) or anything you can suggest? We did not mess with anything on the transmission during the engine swap so I do not believe it to be an internal problem but I could be wrong.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
have the same problem?
