Question about 2000 Toyota RAV4
When I am driving in cruise control the car will lurk and the overdrive will turn off.
This happens randomly, uphill, downhill, or flat road.
Sometimes I can go 50 miles before it happens.
Sometimes it does it a few seconds after turning the cruise control on.
If I click the coast switch, the overdrive will turn back on immediately.
If I click the accelerate switch, it will turn back on in about 5 seconds.
Clicking the overdrive switch has no effect.
Pressing the brake or turning off the cruise contol will turn the overdrive
When it is working right and I am going uphill the car doesn't lurk when the
overdrive turns off, it is a smooth transition.
Toyota service did a test drive but I guess it didn't do it for them
so they couldn't do anything.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.

check to make sure you don't have a vacuum leak to the cruise system. sounds like it is loosing vacuum and taking a while to build up.
