Well, I was driving at speed and it sorta started to rev high, I obviously pulled over and turned off the vehicle. After awhile I started it back up, It seemed to go fine, but would sorta "groan" when I let off the accelerator to slow down. Well, then I pulled over checked my fluids, noticed my transmission fluid was slightly low, added some. Back on the road doing just fine. The car has very low miles approximately 68,000 was probably "driven by an old lady to church" who never changed the transmission. Well, I called a mobile mechanic after the problem persisted. It would work, then get to a certain temperature, and then stop working, and this repeated itself. Finally the next morning, I got it into a shop (of course the local Toyota dealer was the only person to be able to get me in). Recommendation; replace transmission, blown head gasket, and a L CV that needs replaced.
The mobile mechanic said it could be a filter problem in the transmission since it's sat so long, another mechanic told me it could be an old wives tale. Then the Toyota dealership hymns and haws about not being able to find the parts, and it's going to be really hard. So I should just sale them my car on the spot? (As I assume someone on the lot really wants it)
have the same problem?
