Question about Toyota RAV4
Hi, I'm facing an issue when placing the car on [N] position. I find the icon of the 2nd gear showing on the screen infront of me. Now when I shift from [N] to [D], the car jumps with a hit aswell. I usually press the (Auto ***) switch which takes like 10 secs and the 2nd gear icon goes. Then I can swap to [D] normally. Any Ideas? Thanks!
Wow no year stated.... ouch.
take a breath
is this problem with a cold engine or hot, or both.
the N to D lurch is normal cold. (ever drive other cars?)
is the hot rpm at about 800?
is engine power ok>
does engine stall>?
cold rpm , not klondike is around 1500 max, and well lurch, cold when
going from N to any gear or Reverse.
the display wrong is , a failing PRNDL switch.
but the ECU reports this,
why not connect a scan tool and scan it.
id bet it got DTCs stored. causing the CEL to glow full time.

Hi there, I own a 2000 4 motion v6 passat tiptronic. last year october as i pulled away the car did the same thing showing negative on the dash and left me next to the road. through endless troubles i finally got it to a person who can "fix it". 6 months later after guarantee it left me next to the road. The first "fix cost me $1500.00. I love this car but I was **********. 3 weeks ago the car went in and I got the quotation of another $ 1850.00. the previous guy messed up. there is a pressure bowl that shifts to and fro. this gets worn out and burns the clutches wich puts it into a freeze mode so no further damage could be done. What I'm saying, get a good gearbox tech that gives at least a year guarantee. well that's all i've learned through this mess. good luck.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. First, you need to make sure you have the correct fluid in the ******. If it has been awhile since you changed the filter, it may be the issue. I have seen quite a few of these vehicles act like this because of the fluid they use. They really need a strong synthetic fluid. You may have a damaged shifting links or a few of them. Do you have a check engine light on? If you haven't already, you need to get under the car and check for leaks. You could have a bad seal. Look for damage on the outside. It can be the transmission itself. The only way to know for sure though is by taking it off and tearing it down, which is a job for sure. I would try the filter and fluid change first. If it is low on fluid, it will do this. Check for any leaks. If you try this and all checks out, you will need to have the ****** pulled and the links looked at. It may just be fluid since there are no issues past 45. It may be the first few links that are damaged.

I don't want to jump ahead with bad news, before
you have a trans shop road test & weigh in
But having owned a trans shop & worked on those year
chryslers in the 1990's
I think your going to be rebuilding it

IT CONTROLS SHIFTING AT THE RIGHT TIME
AND COULD ALSO CAUSE ALL OF THE SYNMTHOMS
THAT YOU HAVE LISTED SOMETIMES WITH OUT GIVING YOU A CODE GOOD LUCK
