Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
The trans in your truck had some problems in that era with overdrive. You will need ot check a few things to be sure it is not internal. The overdrive would often fail in those units due to the o rings used instead of lip seals.
Check the temp sensor. If it is bad the trans will not go into od. A defective solenoid in the trans for overdrive could cause it not to go in.
Check the fluid, if it is black, you may have burnt the clutches. I have know people who have driven the toyo's for years with no od. It is the same as the old three speed auto.
Hope this helps

you could need a throttle linkage adjustment. first check to see if your ram will start in "park" and "neutral" only. if it starts in any other gear=faulty neutral safety switch. replace. ok, now check linkage for proper adjustment...with engine off and in park...remove intake housing..disconnect cableend from attatchment stud on your throttle body..slide cable off the stud (carefully)..verify that the transmissionthrottle lever is fully forward (idle) position..and verify that the lever on the throttle body is at curb idle pos..insert small screwdriver under edge of the retaining clip and remove..center the cable end on attatchment stud to within 0.04", or 1mm. install retaining clip onto cable housing..check cable adjustment..be sure trans throttle lever and throttlr body lever move in sync with each other.
