Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
I am very sorry your having this issue with your vehicle.
I will try my best to answer all of your questions.
However, before we get started, please let me mention a few things.
1. If at any point you would like to speak on the phone, please feel free to request a phone call on your end and I can call you right away.
2. If you dont understand any technical terms or anything that I mention (component tests or theory or operation), please let me know and I will provide you with a more in debt explanation or answer.
3. Please understand that I am here to help you any way I can.
Have you checked the starting circuit or for power down at the starter?
What year corolla is this?
Both wires down at the starter need to have battery voltage on them with the key in the CRANK position.
It could be something with the new transmission that was just installed or it may be something completely different.
Another thing to consider would be an engine or frame ground as the starter motor needs a good ground (through the engine block or transmission) in order to operate.
Are you sure the engine is able to rotate freely by hand?
Did you actually see the engine rotate? It would be hard to push the vehicle if it were in gear.
I would not want to speak with you when you are by the vehicle. I would need all of your attention units so I can explain everything. Then you can go apply the information to the vehicle when we are done speaking.
Also, just for grins, don't forget to check all fuses (provided you have not done that already)
I will be here waiting for your reply or phone call. :)
