Customer Question
Second opinion] I have...

Second opinion] I have a 2006 Toyota tundra xsp 4 door. It will not shift from 4th to 5th gear and won't catch over drive.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

The brake switch?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

About a month ago I had to add and additive to the tranny bc the torque converter was shuttering

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The additive fixed that problem but now it won't shift from 4th to 5th and when I mash the overdrive on and off button it does nothing

Have you had any one check for body codes because that's where you may find any transmission codes, also if you hooked up a scanner to confirm that the ECU temp sensor is reading correctly as this is crucial for shifting as your transmission is electronically controlled by all inputs to the ECU. tHE OTHER THING TO CHECK IS THE PROPER FLUID HEIGHT IN THE TRANS AS THIS HAS A PROCEDURE TO DO SO. These are things where to start before we get into the trans itself. So tell me where you wish to start and I can walk you through .
