SOURCE: how to use the overdrive on the auto.transmission.

the overdrive button on your automatic transmission is for cruising on the highway basically like having another gear for better economy careful not to use it when your not on the highway because lugging the car in overdrive when its not needed will cause higher fuel consumption other than that you should have no problems just get out on the highway and push and away you go

SOURCE: 1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem

I would start with replacing your tranny fluid. black is no good. your tranny should hold about 7 qts of fluid. The tranny fluid runs through your radiator to help keep it cool. If your thermostat is stuck closed your eng coolant won't circulate and the coolant will get hotter inside your radiator. thus making your tranny fluid hotter and breaking it down. After time it will turn black from getting too hot. Let your car warm up to normal operating temperture then grab your upper radiator hose. It should be very warm. If not your thermostat is stuck closed.

Cressida overdrive on auto


On my Trooper, I know its not a Toy, but the gear changes and more importantly the overdrive operation is controlled by a speed sensor on the tail end of the gearbox usually where the speedo cable is. A fault with this may cause all your problems. Try and locate the speed sensor from a handbook or call to a Toy specialist.

1988 toyota crissada,runs hot,idles to high.going 5 miles per hour and speedomter say 130 mile per hour,has very little power.


While the engine runs hot there is a possibility that the RPM sensor goes off and shows the wrong reading. First of all check the cause for the overheatting before we can go further.
Some tips were given in your earlier request.

I HAVE A 1990 TOYOTO CRESSIDA MY OEVR DRIVE LIGHT WILL NOT COME ON WHAT CAN BE THE PROBLEM?


That light is to let you know the overdrive cancel button is on. Does the dransmission downshift out of overdrive when you push the button? If so i would suspect a bad buld or a broken wire in the shifter assembly. If it does not downshift then good chance the button is bad, dont know if you can still buy this new.
