Question about 2000 Toyota RAV4
It sounds to me like a minor Issue rather than a major one try changing the Transmission Oil and if its got one also the Panel filter that is located in the bottom of the gearbox once the sump cover has been taken off depending on what Vehicle it is. Hope this helps

There is an electronic module called ECT under the dash that controls the transmission ( a small computer), however if you had your vehicle serviced in the recent past the wiring connector (a 3 Pin connector) under the Drivers side (LHD) just before the T/case could have become loose or the wires broken, check this connector out.

If the transmission fluid was VERY low, the damage may already be done. I know on alot of Rav-4's, there is a computer problem, that causes transmission problems. basically, it wants to shift into 2 gears at once, and will eventually make the transmission come apart. BUT, it has to be replaced WITH the ECU because it will just break the new transmission. I would take it to your local Toyota dealer and have them check the ECM and transmission.

I had the same problem with my 1991 sv21 camry, it sounds like the reverse clutch is on its way. if you try to engine brake the car in 2nd or low gear does it hold, or slip?, if it slips then the box needs to come out and the cluch replaced, or is the fluid low? i had spent around $1500 Australian Dollars to fix the issue but with the 5sfe enging im aware that the whole engine and box assem, has to come out as well.

The O/D off means your overdrive is off. Have you accidently bumped it? It could be the start of a problem with electrical system. Usually a bad ground on your O/D may cause this. Intermitten problems are the hardest to track down and fix. Do you know what overdrive does? It's a gas savings device which cuts the engine's RPM's down by something like 1/3, like a 5th gear. That's why you are experiencing the jerking on the highway. Do you have an owners manual? If not a good place to look for one is at a local salvage yard, or online even. There may be something in there to explain this to you a little better than I did. I had a frien who had a simular problem. It turned out to be a bad fuse. It wasn't blown, it was broken, and it's element would jiggle around when he would hit bumps in the road. I don't know if this helped you, but it will give you place to start looking.
