Question about 1983 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Toyota Long bed pick up with automatic.

Found a 83 with 70m miles. Has automatic with overdrive. Pull out switch on dash will lock out the overdrive. Problem is that ovedrive will not always engage. Sometimes when everything gets good and hot it will shift into OD and sometimes not. Transmission has goo substance in it that looks like it may have been an addition. Shift seems to be electric with 3 selinoids. All the books only list two. Any Ideas please ? Most of the techs. in this area are not that old yet.

Also have 83 long bed toyota.....few yrs ago, sharted not shifting into od. started squirting wd40 into all the carb area linkage, and that seems to work for awhile. last time a week ago, it didnt work, so flushed auto trans and refilled w new fluid. didnt work. heard spark jumb so changed plugs and points, so thought that would maybe cause low vacuum, which might be a problem. that didnt work either, so looking for where i had squirted wd in the past, so i can pinpoint the problem. so now looking for helpe

Why weneed O/D on transmission if I wanna to off it it must show on panel off?


Overdrive is a very high final drive gear ratio, to save gasoline. But you should turn it off on hills or if you are going too slow. There should be an indicator light telling when it is on, but it should go off automatically if you are not in the highest regular gear, and if you are not going fast enough.

When I first start my car the transmission works fine. after the car has ran for a short amount of time (around 5 miles) the reverse slips and the car won't move backwards. In the afternoon on my 30 mile...


Sounds like it's on it's way out.
You will soon need to repair or replace it.
Automatic transmissions start at @$2000 & up these days, mostly up.
If you're at all handy - they are not that difficult to replace with one from a recycling yard like Pick & Pull... if you can safely get under the car.
RWD R&R is a bit easier than FWD R&R. 4WD gets a little complicated - but still doable...if you're handy with tools around cars.

First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
