Those designate the three different speeds on the auto transmission. If you select D, it automatically shifts thru all gears as conditions require. If you select L, it will stay in Low gear, or first, and if you select H, it will shift thru all gears except the overdrive gear.

I put a new automatic gearbox and transfer case in my 80 serious Land Cruiser but it wont move when I put it in drive or reverse, what could be the problem?

this is indicative of a torque converter clutch problem
(servo/solenoid )
see as to how you just fitted the transmission I would be checking all wires and connections first
second are you sure that the unit worked before fitting it

Does an automatic transmission have a countershaft?

Depends on the gearbox design. Aisin(Toyota) troque converter automatic trannys are generally epicyclic (planetary), so are (GM and Ford) TC automatics. And I have heard Honda uses a countershaft design for its automatic trannys. Dual clutch automatic trannys have in general countershaft design as opposed to TC automatics.

Hi .. please can you tell me I use which kind of hydrolic oil for my car ( my car is toyota camry 2001 automatic) . beast regards ........

Hi! Firstly let's say are you sure Hydraulic Oil?
Surely you mean Auto Trans Fluid?
A normal Auto Gearbox uses DextronII
Your local Parts supplier/garage will be able to give you the correct amount, grade and specification as He/She will have the catalogue listing your Toyota Camry.
I hope this Helps You!
