I have a Corolla Ke70 with the manual 4 speed transmission. There was a slow leak between in the oil seal and propeller shaft. The leak isn't very big. However, I have left this leak for almost a year now.
My car sat undriven for maybe 2 weeks now, and when I tried to use it, I can't shift the shifter into any gear. For gears 1,2,3,4, I can't physically move the shifter into gear. For reverse, it grinds when I force to shift to reverse.
I tried shifting with the engine turned off, and I noticed that it is a little difficult to put into gear, almost as if there is some sort of resistance.
I checked the clutch master cylinder and fluid level seems to be okay, although dirty brown in color.
Did the car possibly run out of transmission fluid?
The last time I drove the car, I didn't see any problems with it. Although I have noticed that it is sometimes crunching gears when going into reverse.
