Overdrive dosen't shift in.


Make sure u have a good thermostat in it. The engine temp must be at certain temp then a signal is sent to the transmission so it will shift into overdrive. Bought my 4 runner,91, was shifting fine until started getting cold then stopped all of a sudden. Checked the thermostat and it was in but had been gutted which allowed the engine not to warm up sufficient to allow the trans to shift into overdrive. Changed thermostat about $8, hasn't skipped a beat since.

My 93 chevy g20 van heater doesn't work very well. It has the hottest running thermostat available.


you want to get a thermostat that has a low temp release. when u have a hightemp release it does not open til it reaches a hot temp. when you put the low temp in it releases earlier and warms the heater core up as the engine warms up.

I have a 93 Toyota 4 runner that I had to replace the head gaskets on do to the recall work over torqeing the headbolts. After replacing the gaskets I can't run it with the thermastat in with out it over...


1. I would in the first place try to isolate this problem to a faulty thermostat and /or wrong fitment.

2. Get a new thermostat that is the correct spec for the vehicle. If you don't know check with the dealer.

3. Make sure you are positioning the thermo correctly in its seat and when connecting everything back up there is nothing impeding coolant flow like a poorly fitted gasket.

4. Importantly make sure that when connecting the cooling system back up and after topping it up with the correct coolant you purge the cooling system of air. If you do not do this the vehicle will overheat and potential engine damage will result.
Many vehicles have bleeder screws in place to bleed out air from the cooling system. Consult the workshop manual for the vehicle for advice on the correct procedure for bleeding air from your cooling system.
