In terms of design, the 3-speed automatic transmission A131L with hydraulic control belongs to the family of FWD transmissions (А140 -\240-\540). Almost all hardware and spare parts are interchangeable.

This automatic gearbox is a very rare “guest” in repair shops. This is partly thanks to the fact that this transmission is maintenance friendly, simple, trouble-free in operation and its service life is much longer than the lifespan of the most reliable car. Usually this transmission is installed on American Corollas.

Technical issues and repair guidelines

Simple and robust design of the A130 unit with two “invincible” planetary gears and without solenoids gives no reason for visits to repair services.The overhaul of this gearbox takes place after impressive mileages and frequently involves the torque converter repair, replacement of seals and gaskets, and less frequently replacement of worn-out friction components and even less often – brake bands.

Car owners prefer to change the filter (possible to use a А140 filter) than cleaning it, therefore statistics related to selling of spare parts for this transmission is unimpressive. A new filter with a narrow slot scoop produced in 1990 was supposed to force auto owners to change filters.The most common spare parts that wear out in these gearboxes are the following: seals, gaskets, rubber elements that become hard, weakening spring, damaged Direct and Forward friction elements, worn-out brake band.
