Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4

1997 toyota rav4 manual transmission won't shift into any gear

I was driving my car up a hill and the engine revved but it seemed the engine was in neutral. Coasted down the hill and everything seemed to work okay. Upon arrival on my street, lost all gears, meaning I could not get the car to move but the engine revs when the accelerator is depressed. I can move the gear shift without putting in the clutch. What is the problem and is this going to be expensive to fix? Thanks!

Change the gear oil. If the gear oil is leaking get it fixed as soon as possible. If all the oil has leaked then it may have severely damaged the gear box.

SOURCE: Few slight problems in 1997 toyota rav4:

Hi there
Your rattling noise in engine bay ,dose it do it only when you start up, and if so dose the rattle go when the oil light on dash goes out, If yes then its either Low in oil/your parking on a slope/engine bearings worn/oil filter change and change oil to 30/50 oil.
you should only downshift to 1st whan stopped but you can change up and down the g/box without a clutch with correct Revs

check the level of the transmission fluid while the engine is running.
also has the transmission been "flushed"? a lot of shops just use
dextron atf with the additives supplied by the supplier of the flushing machine.
this can cause problems in toyotas.
replacing the fluid with the correct (T IV) transmission fluid
may help.
but if you are having this much trouble it may be too late.

When do I use the d 5 gear in acura 2003 tl 3.2 liter


Pretty much all the time!

D3, D4, and D5 are all just *DRIVE* like on any automatic transmission, EXCEPT
that the number next to the D is the "highest gear the automatic transmission will go into".
The Acura just gives you a choice, in case you don't want to go into a higher gear (like if it's slippery traction or a steep hill, etc.)

1 means: Manual gear. FIRST GEAR ONLY.
2 means: Manual gear. SECOND GEAR ONLY.
D3 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 3rd gear.
D4 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 4th gear.
D5 means: Use automatic transmission, but engine will never shift above 5th gear.

I have a 97 Toyota RAV4 which sometimes while driving down the road the car seems to shift to nutral. The RPM's will go up to about 4000 and the car seems to only be coasting. I can let off the gas...


Check you transmission fluid for proper levels. If ok, have the transmission oil and filter changed!! If that doesnt remedy the issue, its possible the transmission needs to be replaced or rebuilt!!

Gears slipping


Sounds like early stages of a worn out clutch slipping under load. If it is, make sure in the future to always take your foot completely off of the clutch pedal once in gear, or you will be replacing it again. In other words Do Not Ride the Clutch. Eventually you will have trouble going up hills, even in first or second.

I have a 1997 toyota rav4 manual 4X4 , Everytime I shift up into 4th gear it does a slight grind but it doesn't do it down shifting.


Sounds like you have a scrinco stuck or worn out and the way you will get away with out grinding till you can get it done is to drive it like the old cars and trucks and that is to double de clutch between 3rd and 4th
all you do is to clutch in pull into nutural clutch out and in again fast and in to 4th gear (simple).

2000 toyota echo, transmission won't shift to 4th


First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first
