Question about 1995 Lexus GS 300
When you put the tranny in drive it feels like your in 3rd gear pulling out from a stop. If you manually put it in low gear it pulls out fine and the you have to shift it manually. The OD light is flashing. I took it to a transmission shop, and they said my problem wasn't in the tranny that it was electrical in the ECU. I replaced the ECU and still have the problem. I replaced some switch inside the tranny for the torque converter @ $400 and still have the problem. Can somebody help, I can't afford process of elimination ? This is in 1995 lexus GS300. Thank you very much
The shift solenoids in the shifter console isn't any more good

Your trans is going into limp mode and that is why it is starting out in a higher gear.With the o/d light flashing there is a problem.Try this disconnect the battery for 5 min then start the car,before you do anything cycle the o/d button and see if it starts flashing.If it does then there is somekind of electrical problem.Could be bad wire or bad solenoid.If not drive it and start out with o/d off in low and shift manually through the gears and see if they are all there when you need to get in fourth hit the o/d button to shift and see if it does.They should also be able to get a code for the flashihg light to try to pin point.Hope this helps and thank for using fixya
