Salam fellow Pakwheelers,
The problem I came across this winter season (or when the weather is cold in the morning) is that when I start the car ( Corolla ae100, 5a and auto tranny) in the morning and take it out in cold weather as is now in ABBOTTABAD (almost 0 degrees in morning) the car wont shift into the 4th gear for about 4 to 5 kms or untill the temprature is moderatly hot on guage
On other hand I did find the gear oil level above the normal point which was recently changed Orignal toyota d2/d3 ( dont exactly remember ) 4 litre fluid was poured in but now looking at the dip stick i think the capacity is 3 litres
where as last year same happened to me in December but at that time the gear ran low on oil and later on broke down and was replace with qabli one which i am running now
now the question is
1. is it normal??
2. is this problem because of the excess of oil?
3. is is bad if the oil is in excess??
4. is it the cold weather causing this problem?
5. what is to be done??
I'd like sir @Xulfiqar togive his expert opinion on this matter..
