For some toyotas (I own a 1994 4-runner) there is an emissions-control feature that disables Overdrive until the engine is up to full temperature.
In my case, it would get into overdrive, but it took a very long time to get there, especially in winter. Turns out that the thermostat was stuck open, so the engine was running very cold. About $150 got me a new thermostat and now it's all better.

Hope that helps!

Is there a difference between a manual and auto engine in the 1996 toyota camry widebody or is it just in the gearbox

  • Manual and standard are references to the transmission. Manual being where the transmission runs the gears on its own. Standard being a "stick" where the driver switches gears.

  • Hope this helps.

Changed cyl head, on 1996 2.2 toyota camry, cant seem to figure out cam timing

there is a hole in the camshaft gear turn the gear until it lines up with a mark in the cylinder head at the top. then line the crankshaft gear mark up with the mark on the block. sometimes the best way to see the camshaft timing mark is with a mirror.

1991 luminA 3.1 3 /speed automatic tranny---No

the CV joint in one of the front axles could have let go. if you had a clicking noise while turning prior to the incident.that could be your problem. A way see if the axle is the problem, grab the axles (with the car in neutral with the parking break set) and try to turn them by hand.(one at a time). they should not turn or wiggle around alot. If one or both dose that is your problem.
