    Hello I just my new project car and it’s an 89 corolla 5 speed. It worked fine until the tranny got stuck in third and now it won’t come out.

    New Owner - Question about driving in reverse (CVT transmission)

    Hello, I bought a pre-owned 2014 Corolla LE. This is the first car that I have driven with a CVT so the experience is new to me. One major question: is it normal when going in reverse at high speed that the car starts jerking and reving up. A mechanic told me that is normal because there is...
