1994 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 156000 miles
I just purchased a 1994 Toyota 4runnner.A few days ago I noticed that the trans won't shift into overdrive early into the drive. Not until it warms up. Its as if it in 2l on the shifter. If I hit the o/d button nothing happen. Once the trans warms it will shift. And o/d button works. It scares me cause I find myself going down the road at 55 mph and the tach at 4500 rpms. What could the problem be? I checked the fluid and it hard to get a good reading. I was also thinking of getting a trans flush done. Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. I was also thinking of putting Mobil 1 in. Is that a bad move with the high mileage? Thanks for your time.
