Manual gearbox shifter is floppy and stuck in first gear

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.

SOURCE: desciption of the gear positions on the automatic gear shift

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.

SOURCE: I have a toyota rav 4 1996 & the engine

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.

Get out gear that stuck in


I used to have an old Holden that did that. On the side of the gearbox were 2 levers that changed between gears. Sometimes if I was a bit quick on changing gears , it used to lock into 1st and reverse at the same time. By using a shifter spanner, I would crawl under the car and manually move 1 gearlever at a time until they clicked into the correct position. You may have the same problem where the gearbox has stuck in 2 gears. Have a play with the shifters while someone moves the gearlever to see if it will drop back into its correct position.

Gears stuck


Unlees you have had a loss of gear oil this is unusual.
I would first remove the linkage on the gearbox and see i i could manually move the shifter. Obviously, if i could, then the fault is in the shift rods or lever.
If the gear shift on the bix is jammed, the box will gave to come out for strip down and inspect or get another gearbox.
Cheers

Dose the engine oil top up the gearbox oil in the toyota rava4 19


NO the engine oil only tops off the engine it self and the gear box uses a different oil and to top it off and check is different from the engine dip stick. Good luck and your manual should tell you when it's time to service your gear box oil.
