Customer Question

Recently had a new transmission in a 1998 Toyota 4-runner. In the morning when I put the vehicle in drive it does not go. I wait a bit then try again and it "jumps" and then goes.

Did you check the fluid level yet and does it do the same thing in reverse?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
not the same thing in reverse.
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 1 year ago.

What about the fluid level and is it seting any codes in the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Never mind. I had not called a mechanic when I asked the question so I do not know about codes. I have an appointment with a mechanic next week.

Ok let me know what he says if you need further clarification. Typically if there are no codes and it does not go into gear once you put it to drive even if you shifted manually to low and it takes a while for it to engage it is a hydraulic pressure problem. Low is strictly a mechanical/hydraulic issue. There is nothing electronically that controls low or reverse. More than likely something is going on inside the transmission.
