Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4
1996 Rav 4 gear shifter seemed to be getting sloppy, then one day I could not select any gear at all, but the car was stuck in first gear so I was able to limp home, It won't come out of first and the shifter is like a floppy jelly stick.

The gearbox normally shifts like this in "D":
1st gear to 2nd gear
2nd gear to 3rd gear
3rd gear to OverDrive
If you have the selector in "2", it will not make the final 2 shifts. "2" is nice for descending very steepo hills slowly, and also is nice to use coming down hills when it is icy/snowy, the engine will slow down in "2", and you will not have to depress the brake pedal.

Filter should be on drivers side of passenger side of car directly between the doors. To change shut off fuel pump relay switch in trunk, remove the clips and change the filter.

Does it loose power all together as if the engine shuts down or does it go itnto a reduced power state?
Check all of your fluid levels. Keep an eye on all of your other gauges when this happens. Some vehicles will automatically go to a reduced power state to protect itself from damage if overheating etc.
More likely, another simple problem could be a loose connection somewhere. Start by checking your battery terminals, and any connections under the hood that can vibrate loose. Typicallly if a problem just "goes away" suddenly. It is an electrical problem.
