    4efte swapped 87 corolla. Just got it running. Been dealing with little issues, but now on top of things today it has no 3rd or 4th gear. And 2nd only stays engaged until i let off the throttle. After that it free revs and i have to slow down to about 15mph and get 1st gear again

    Looks like its going into limp mode. Reset the ECU and got 3rd and 4th back. Very interesting

    Sounds like an electrical gremlin. Any fault codes getting logged?

    Not that I can tell. I plan to mess around with the car again soon and see if i can get more answers.

    Im starting to regret this swap.
