I have 1987 toyota mr2 automatic with overdrive, w...

Don't listen to that guy, he doesn't know what he's talking about!! I have an 85 Celica with the very same issue. I was told it could be some kind of temperature sensor that may not be working properly. There is a sensor, I was told in the exhaust line that indicates that the car has reached operating temperature and until that sensor is tripped, it will not activate the solenoid that allows overdrive to engage, it could also be that solenoid malfunctioning, or maybe a fuse or the switch that turns on the overdrive malfunctioning.. I would check those things first before you go thinking the trans is having issues.

Open the rear bootlid behind the engine and there are two carpet panels on each side covering the light electrics. they are held in by fastners, push each fastner at the centre to release them.
Remove the carpet panel to get access to the brake light. Twist the bulb holder and replace the bulb.
Then replace the carpet panels using the fastners.

Did you check the bushings that connect the cables to the trans? They are a popular issue in not letting it change gears, getting stuck, or notchy shifting. They get worn...there are a full brass replacement part for cheap. Hope that helps! let me know.
