Question about 1990 Oldsmobile Toronado
If you can't fix this problem by adjusting the cable or the gear selector switch on top of the transaxle, then it's most likely an internal malfunction. You'll have to take it to a professional to have it diagnosed.

Check transmission fluid. If that is full, try changing the fuel filter. It could be starving for gas, and trying to shift but can't. It could also be the speed sensor, or shift solenoid.

With all the problems you are having,I would check my charging system and battery connections.Also check for bad body to frame,to engine grounds.Look for a ground wire not to be connected to the engine somewhere.

it may have worn valve body coponents or there stuck, the first thing i would try is a bg trany flush, this helps 75% of the time and its cheaper than a rebuild, its worth a try, you may even ask to have the filter changed if its never been done,

I have a s40 1.9d / 2000 plate,
In the last month or so the car loses revs when changing up to 3rd and 4th gear, I can only get 50 mph max in 3rd gear 80mp in 4th.
The car has just clocked 185,000 miles
Its a great car but a pai at the moment, I've had a service including fuel fillter change added fuel cleaners to the deilsel all to no avail

sorry but time to visit the transmission shop. the only thing you could try first is Lukas Transmission oil sold at parts stores one quart only. make sure you get the oil for transmissions and not the crankcase.
