  1. Hi, at the 110,000 service they replaced my old transmission oil with Caltex easy shift 75W90. I just want to be clear that downshifting was an issue before the transmission oil change, and was the reason I requested they change the transmission oil to see if that would help.
  2. Hello, I have noticed that my Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport 2014 Manual is not down shifting easily like it used to. example: I leave for work in the morning and up shift my gears to 70 km/hr and travel about 1 km before needing to stop at a stop sign. When slowing the car down to stop, I gradually shift the gears down to help slow the vehicle. The gear lever is often reluctant to enter the lower gear, to the point at times my car needs to be stationary before I can enter into first. From 6th to 5th, and 5th to 4th is never an issue, however 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st is problematic. I have owned the car from new, It has done 115,000 km, Toyota replaced the transmission oil at the last service at my request. The issue seems to be more prevalent in the mornings when it's cold (0-10 degrees Celsius), Up shifting is excellent. The air conditioning compressor was replaced under warranty at 100,000 kms. I have spoken to a friend who said it may be the synchromesh, I hope this is not the case because i was expecting a manual corolla to be reliable. Cheers.
