Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4

Toyota Rav 4 4x4 manual transmission is slipping out of 4th gear

The problem started today coming up the hill, the Rav 4 suddenly comes out of 4th gear and I have to shift down to 3rd in order to keep it moving. I did not try for 5th gear, because I didn't want to dog it coming up the mountain. Someone suggested possibly linkage adjustment needed? I heard something about a gear wearing down. I cannot afford some huge 2,500 bill from a dealer. There appears to be other solutions other than replacing an entire transmission (if that is what the problem is). Any suggestions or words of comfort?

Sounds like your transmission has come to the end of its life. You can try getting the transmission flushed , and an additive I.E. No Slip added. That might cure some of the problems but obviously if its slipping the clutchs inside are worn out and transmission needs an overhaul.

I would suspect the pressure plate and clutch need replacing. Your truck is 22 years old and if it has never had the clutch replaced you can almost bet it needs a new clutch and pressure plate. It slips in 4th & 5th gear due to the fact the the ratio is high and it takes more pressure to hold the clutch in place.

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.

Transmission i think


Sounds like clutch. The clutch is almost gone and worn unevenly, so if you baby it, it will stay engaged if you put alot of stress on it like up a hill it will slip. This symptom is the warning sign, it will get worse as to where you can't engage any gear. The more it slips the quicker it will fail.
