Default 1999 Toyota corolla transmission problems?

99? Toyota corolla.. Automatic 4 cylinder. Car moves into all gears fine when you step on the gas car won?t move just revs up as if there is a big log in front of the car preventing it from moving. I?ve been told that this is a differential problem in the tranny. Should I have the tranny rebuilt, get a used one or is it possible to just replace the differential ?

maybe. do you feel it bump as you move the selector through the ranges? in and out of gear? or does the engine race?

either way,

i'd cetainly look at the range selector on the trans and the trans shifter cable first. then i would retrieve trouble codes. CEL/MIL lit or not. this has a soleniod shift trans that's monitored/controlled by the ecu influenced by a number of sensors.

also, not sure how this one works, but if for some reason the parking pawl is jammed in place, it would do the same thing.

for the diff/exfer case,

again, not sure if it's even a seperate/closed case or share trans fluids, but if separate, check fluid condition for particulate matter. that would be a clue as to it being suspect. plus, prolly would have had some sort of symptomatic issues coming from that b4 it went toast. grinding and such.

so you're gonna need some diagnostics done first to determine the exact cause.

reputable ASE shop or the dealer is best.
