SOURCE: 2002 toyota highlander transmission

First check your transmission fluid level improper fluid level is the number one cause of trans failure, you need to check it with the vehicle warmed up, on flat ground, i accidently checked mine while it was tilted in my driveway and i got a false reading on the dipstick. The fluid should have a reddish color too it, if it is light brown, its time to get it serviced, if it is dark brown or black and you can feel gritty particles while rubbin it between your fingers, your transmission is toast.

this fan noise may be the coolant fan doing the job of cooling the radiator when there is no air flow through the radiator as in standing in a line or at lights. IN a drive through line you would have the window down and so the noise came to your attention when the fan cut in. However have it checked out by an accredited repair shop to put your mind at rest.

2002 toyota Highlander. will not go into park. will drive fine in all gears, but from rev to park is basically impossible. Have to push rather strongly to get it there in order to turn off and get key out....


Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like the bushing on the transmission, where the shift cable attaches, is either broken or seized.

What to do:

Go out, open the hood, and have someone move the shift lever. Observe the front of the transmission, on the driver side, where the cable meets the lever on the front of the transmission.

The bushing may be seized or broken.

CHeck engine AND VSA light came on in my car 2003 Highlander


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Without knowing the actual 'code' (the reason for the light being on), it is hard to state with any accuracy.

However...we see quite a bit, here in my shop, Highlanders with the Check Engine light on, right after an oil change. Often, whoever changes the oil sometimes checks the air filter, and, when they open the filter box, they knock off a vacuum hose going to the air filter box. This could be your problem.

Go out to the vehicle, pop the hood, and check the black box that holds the air filter, on the passenger side front of the engine compartment; look to see if a black rubber hose is not connected. If it is off, reconnect it and drive the vehicle 10 miles, shut it off, and drive another 10 miles. This may extinguish the light.

I hope that this info helps you out. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
