Don't give up looking for an answer.
I maintain 4 Toyotas, and all of them do this very thing.
I have learned to live with it.
I have taken them to Toyota dealers, who say there is nothing wrong with them.
I have taken them to independent transmission shops, who have changed the oil and serviced the transmissions, and they were not any better.
So now, I let the car warm up for a few minutes, and it shifts a little sooner.
God bless your efforts.

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

SOURCE: AC doesn't blow cold air on 95 4 runner. Can I check compressor

Well, for one with the truck idling, the RPMs should increase every time that the clutch on the compressor engages. You should be able to see it engage and disengage and the RPMs will change accordingly. If this isn't happening then you need to determine why. Have the A/C blower on low when doing this.

Can a diagnostic connector on 1995 Toyota 4 runner be jumped over with jumper wire to get check engine codes?


There is probably a way to access codes by using a jumper and causing the engine checklight or an integral led to flash in groups. I can't say which pin or pins need jumping.

I suggest you ask the question of google and click on the youtube video.

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.

1994 toyota four runner not going into overdrive until it is warmed up


This may not be a problem. First you did not tell us if this is a manual or automatic. But neither are supposed to go into overdrive until the engine is warmed up and you don't have to press much on the gas pedal. You should check fluid levels also, and perhaps change fluids. If it is a manual, the overdrive may have a separate fluid compartment and level. Overdrive should not engage under 50 mph either. Tell us more details.

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.

Looking to buy a '95 toyota 4 runner. when test


Yes, Bill you are wise to be worried. It may be a simple fix and it may cost over $1,000 to repair. Walk away from this vehicle. There are plenty more out there without this type problem.
