Do the rpms go up? Are you able to put it into any gear or does it not let you?

RPMS go up Does not go into gear

like if in neutral and no noise
Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 2 years ago.

The problem is the clutch is worn out. This is not allowing it to get into gear. You are looking at 127.00 and 5 hours of labor to complete the job.

it is not clutch clutch is ok so never mind I will find local help
Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 2 years ago.

If you put the vehicle into gear and try to release the clutch and nothing happens this normally is a bad clutch. But if your unable to put the vehicle into gear while the engine is running this would be a bad pressure plate. Reason why nobody likes to answer these questions is it is never a quick easy fix and we get punished with customers who dont pay or leave negative feedback. But I still tried to help out as I did not want you to be sitting here without getting help. Maybe I did not understand the question, but I will do whatever I can do to help. I have been working on cars for a very long time and manual transmissions are very simplistic.

I should have mentioned that the clutch had been checked it is not clutch I think it may be a electronic problem . I will find out
Expert:  C. Walker, Jr. replied 2 years ago.

I will open this up and see if the other experts have more input for you.

Hello. Different expert here. Please allow me to add into this request. I agree with my colleague C.Walker...this really sounds like a clutch issue; he is very correct on every statement he has made. The questions I have for you are as follows:

With the engine off, can you put the trans shifter into any gear?

If you can put the shifter into any gear, select first gear. Then release the park brake and push the vehicle forward. Advise if the vehicle moves or not.

to be proper I have been involved in repairs to heavy vehicles so I do not need the basics of checks I know how to I am not familiar with Toyotas so thanks any way
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 2 years ago.

I am trying to determine if the shift fork is the cause of the issue, or the transfer case is in neutral.
