That code 63= "Severed No. 2 solenoid or short circuit-severed wire harness or short circuit." There is a way to check the No. 2 transmission solenoid with an ohmeter. You'll have to disconnect the wire bundle from the ECT computer and measure the resistance between the S2 terminal and ground. You should see 11-15 ohms. If the solenoid is open or reads very high ohms, it should be replaced. This can be done by removing the transmission pan and the transmission oil filter to gain access to the solenoids. You do not need to remove the whole transmission from the vehicle.

    You're welcome...I had a 92 Forerunner with the same problem. I replaced the No. 2 solenoid and changed the fluid in the tranny and that solved it.

Shifting automatic transmission is sluggish


you probably need to get your tranny fluid and filter changed,your filter is probably getting plugged up,get a tranny flush done at a garage or if you plan on doing it yourself,its a messy job.you need to get yourself one of those haynes repair manuals at an auto parts store or on ebay

Overdrive dosen't shift in.


Make sure u have a good thermostat in it. The engine temp must be at certain temp then a signal is sent to the transmission so it will shift into overdrive. Bought my 4 runner,91, was shifting fine until started getting cold then stopped all of a sudden. Checked the thermostat and it was in but had been gutted which allowed the engine not to warm up sufficient to allow the trans to shift into overdrive. Changed thermostat about $8, hasn't skipped a beat since.

My overdrive lightis flashing on my 1991 toyota 4 runner.


means it's going out or the transmission oil will need to be changed, check the transmission fluid if it is brown and smells likes onions have the fluid changed and the filter, this may not fix it but you may get lucky, if it's the band or clutch assembly you will have to rebuild transmission.
