Remanufactured Toyota Corolla Transmissions 


In terms of overall popularity, the Toyota Corolla ranks up there with the Model T and Volkswagen Bug. Like those two cars, the Corolla’s main appeal is that it’s an affordable and reliable form of transportation. However, transmission problems with the A245E can be quite expensive and hurt your cars reliability. So let’s see if installing a remanufactured Toyota Corolla transmission can save you some headaches and money in the long run. 


Common Toyota Corolla Transmission Problems  


Erratic Shifting / Loss of Forward Gears: If you’re experiencing A245E transmission problems like slipping, erratic shifting, or failed gear engagement, the causes could range from a failed solenoid to a torque convertor issue. 

Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 


How to Solve Toyota Corolla Transmission Problems 


Solution A: Buy a Used Toyota Corolla Transmission 

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Toyota Corolla transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 


Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Toyota Corolla Transmission  

Getting a rebuilt Toyota Corolla transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Toyota Corolla transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be in-play. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 


Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Toyota Corolla Transmission  

If you want to get the most service life out of your vehicle as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Toyota Corolla transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. They’re also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
