Question about 1989 Toyota Celica Liftback
Hi. Please help me...
This old girl is beautiful, goes well and looks good in and out but last week, after working fine these past few years, refuses to go into overdrive.
One day it was fine, the next morning when I went to work, it was running at over 4000 and despite pressing the OD button, not a change in revs or anything, except the light going off/ on.
I'm hoping its not going to cost me three arms & both legs to fix, because its attached to my heart. If I have to let her go, well, I will be sad.
Please help me.
Thank you everyone, in advance.
The fuse for the overdrive is the 15 amp "Gauge" fuse. Since the OD light is working, the OD system is getting the right power. Methinks that you have, at best, a seized or sticking OD solenoid. What I would do at this point is to take the old girl to a service facility, and treat her to a complete transmission flush. Not just changing the fluid, but a complete flush. This may clean the sticking plunger on the solenoid, and get you & her back on the road. At worst, you may need to change the OD solenoid. Not too awful expensive. Get her flushed, and post me back. Thanks.
