Customer Question
1993 GS300 128K miles...

1993 GS300 128K miles only engages in Reverse although the gear shift lever moves correctly and no check engine light.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

No check engine light.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GS300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I have tried allowing the motor to reach operating temp. I think I should check the ATF fluid levels and possibly the speed sensors on the tranny.

I plan to check the shift linkage at the tranny when I check the ATF levels.

I guess you can close this ticket, the ATF was a little low and it seems to be working okay after filling it up.
