SOURCE: overdrive problem

the bulb has no feedback. so the flicker is only the bulb circuit. bad contact maybe. use overdrive all the time unless in mountains or towing.

SOURCE: Hello, I own a 93

The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU

Why wont my 1992 toyota pickup shift into overdrive

Fluid may be low or dirty. On automatics, check the level with engine on while in park. Could also be a shift solenoid, governor, speed sensor (on electronic transmissions). Just to cover all the bases, make sure the shifter is in the proper gear (some cars have 2 "D" positions) and make sure that, if there's an "Eco" button, that it's on.

I have a 93 toyota paseo and when I drive it the gears grind like they wont shift corectlt I wanna know should I just get a hole new transsmison 4 it or is it the shift solenoid that needs 2 be replaced

If it is a standard/manual shift transmission, the clutch slave or master cylinder is probably going bad. If you continue to drive it like this it can damage the transmission. I would get these parts checked out ASAP to prevent transmission damage. This is a minor repair compared to replacing the transmission.

If it is an automatic transmission grinding and not shifting, the problem will be inside the transmission itself, and it should be repaired or replaced.

How much should it cost to pay a transmission repair shop to repair/replace a transmission on a 1993 4 cyl pickup truck with 130,000 miles? - gary wells

$1500 thats like asking how much a house costs. It DEPENDS. Automatic? Manual? you may be better with a REMANUFACTURED TRANS with a good warranty.

Car won't go in reverse

If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
