    So what you are saying is that it has only one forward gear (2nd) and i take it that you still have reverse. That would be LHM. problem with the wiring from transmission to control module or with transmission control module

SOURCE: after start car do not move after gear shift

Check the automatic transmission fluid. If it smells burnt or looks any color other than redish replace the trans fluid. Most likely the fluid is low or really dirty.

SOURCE: when driving (auto) in 2nd gear car jurks

If the transmission fluid was VERY low, the damage may already be done. I know on alot of Rav-4's, there is a computer problem, that causes transmission problems. basically, it wants to shift into 2 gears at once, and will eventually make the transmission come apart. BUT, it has to be replaced WITH the ECU because it will just break the new transmission. I would take it to your local Toyota dealer and have them check the ECM and transmission.

The O/D off means your overdrive is off. Have you accidently bumped it? It could be the start of a problem with electrical system. Usually a bad ground on your O/D may cause this. Intermitten problems are the hardest to track down and fix. Do you know what overdrive does? It's a gas savings device which cuts the engine's RPM's down by something like 1/3, like a 5th gear. That's why you are experiencing the jerking on the highway. Do you have an owners manual? If not a good place to look for one is at a local salvage yard, or online even. There may be something in there to explain this to you a little better than I did. I had a frien who had a simular problem. It turned out to be a bad fuse. It wasn't blown, it was broken, and it's element would jiggle around when he would hit bumps in the road. I don't know if this helped you, but it will give you place to start looking.

SOURCE: I have an 80 series

It seems like your "2nd start" button is turned on. The 80 series LC has a button next to the shifter which allows it to start in 2nd gear. If the button is not engaged then there could be a problem with the circuit, but that is not common

SOURCE: I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5

A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

2008 wrangler, won't start and can't move gear battery. Not long ago. 23,000 miles

With the truck not running, but the key on move the shift lever through the sequence - f the fuse blows you have a wire getting pinched by the shift mechanism. Trace the linkage and look for a scraped wire or squashed wire.
If it only happens when the engine is running a wire is rubbing on the engine or trans and look for the same - a scraped wire or squashed wire.

Continuous metal knocking noise while driving in 2nd gear?

First thing to do is ensure all the transmission oil levels are correct. It is a good idea to draw a little oil into a sight glass to check the condition.

Check the condition and security of of the propshafts and universal joints and a thorough wheelfree inspection of the underside.

It is perhaps worth noting the gearbox rotates considerably faster than road speed. A road speed ticking is unlikely to be directly related to the gearbox.
The only things that do rotate at road or wheel speed are the wheels and things connected directly to them - brake rotors, drive shafts/half shafts, differentials...

not to panic as it is not the box
because you have 2 cables for the gear selection they have to be adjusted correctly to enable gear selection
one cable will position the selector for in the gate in line with a shift rail and the other will move the rail
after a box replacement ,it is very possible that the adjustment has mover or a cable has stretch or started to fail causing your problems
any accredited transmission shop with experience on your make of vehicle should be able to adjust or replace the faulty cable

I don't know how you thought he could fix that leak when the trans has to come out? Take it to a transmission shop and stop guessing, and replacing perfectly good parts. Have the trans shop replace the rear seal while the trans is out.

The first thing to do is to plug in a diagnosis machine and check for errors in the gear system. From my experience it could be a sensor in the gearbox or the ECU.

Torque converter is probraly going bad, the automatic gear selector having trouble seeking or going into another gear unless high rpm to select it out to another gear. Could also be your 1gear is getting bad. you may need to take it to the shop as in the long term, it can damage more. You could check to see if fluid is up to level too, as this does happen when it's low in transmission fluid.

Hi there from what I can see this seems to be a common problem. I found this link to how one guy dealt with the problem. I hope this helps. The thread shows a common problem with some jeeps of this vintage.

Here is another site but I did not see anything there.

Here is another. I hope this helps. You can always call the dealer if you don't want to go in for service.

I hope this helps! God bless.
