Your light for the overdrive is probably flashing from the transmission shifting in and out of overdrive? But to your power problem,It could be your cataylitic convertor. You should have a check engine light on with a fault code associated with it.Manuf are all different but it should say, Cat efficiency below minimum which comes from the rear oxygen sensor. The only way for you to check would be to drop the exhaust forward of the cat and then drive the car around the block to see if the power returns. Sometimes if you take a rubber hammer and hit the Cat you can hear the broken material inside jumping up and down. One thing I would check first before replacing it is by govt standard it is warrantied up to 80k. call the dealer and run your VIN number they can tell you if it is still under warranty. Even if the car is not.Hope that helps..Mark

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

If the "overdrive off" light is flashing, this indicates an error condition in the transmission ECU.

There is a diagnostics procedure you can follow, but it is a bit too long to go in to here. Try and track down a copy of the Toyota service manual, number RM315E (searching the ih8mud forums is a good start) and follow the procedure in there for reading the fault codes.

It involves bridging the diagnostics connector in the engine bay (facing the front of the vehicle with the bonnet open it is to the right of the engine on the bulkhead) - easy to do...

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


I would start with replacing your tranny fluid. black is no good. your tranny should hold about 7 qts of fluid. The tranny fluid runs through your radiator to help keep it cool. If your thermostat is stuck closed your eng coolant won't circulate and the coolant will get hotter inside your radiator. thus making your tranny fluid hotter and breaking it down. After time it will turn black from getting too hot. Let your car warm up to normal operating temperture then grab your upper radiator hose. It should be very warm. If not your thermostat is stuck closed.

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


does it loose heat when you set still? is it full of coolent? whats the climent like were you at? is trans. low on fluid?when was the last time trans. was serviced? i know on most cars and trucks low fluid or old fluid can cause it to do what your saying, and also cold weather. some cars have a temp.sensor that won't let it shift into overdrive until car gets to a certain temp. with your temp. guage fluctuating the two could be related. has your service engine light ever come on and then went out, when it did this? if it ever has, have it scaned and see what codes show up. it might be that temp sensor i talked about. well thats the best i can do for you RON hope it helps or at least point you in the right direction to cure your problem. OLD SCHOOL.

2004 Toyota Sienna, a/c light flashes with system running


The AC light will flash if the AC compressor "Revolution Sensor" is compromised.
This is the only reason that the AC light will flash. Best advice: Replace the AC revolution sensor. It is bolted onto the side of the compressor. Best to have a professional do this, as loss of the refrigerant may occur when it is removed. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa. The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be most appreciated.
