I bought a 1995 Toyota 4runner, auto, 3.0, 72000 mi.
In the morning when cold the truck will not shift into overdrive for about 5 minutes until it warms up. I had it checked out by two mechanic that the dealer I bought the truck from referred me to. I also contacted Toyota service and a couple of transmission shops, to ask if this was normal. The referred mechanics both couldn't find anything wrong even when starting off cold though one guy said it was normal until it warms up. The Toyota service guy said it was normal in the newer 4runner but he wasn't sure about 1995. Another transmission guy said sometimes the thermostat will be change out with the wrong temp causing the sensors to fault.
can anyone confirm this or i'm I getting the run around?
