Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
Had problem going over a mountain pass, my ******* overheated and blew ******* fluid everywhere. Towed it to a shop, and they cleaned my fan and it worked for a while. Now Im having trouble getting it into reverse. One mechanic said it was probably my transmission:( Hoping to look for other solutions before I call it a loss. Anyone else with this problem?
Your shell in your transmission is probably stripped or your piston is stuck in transmission cause it not go in reverse easy way to tell if its transmission is to smell your fluid and see if it smells burnt.

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. The problem you describe could simply be a wiring/connection problem -- no telling at this point. Now, having written that, my suspicion is the LR (Low/Reverse) clutch or the solenoid (hopfully, just the solenoid).
