Automatic tranmission not working on overdrive, tacoma 2006


The knock sensor fault may be preventing the transmission from shifting to OD. The main engine computer also sends commands to the transmission computer. Your transmission valve body is controlled by electronics.

Tacoma runs through all the gears but won't shift into overdrive


Check the bracket where your throttle cable is connected to the engine. There should be 2 cables. One of them is the throttle cable, the other is what I call the "kickdown cable" which tells your shift computer when you punch it and tells it to down shift. It can also affect the shifting ability. It is possible that cable has come off or so loose its not functioning properly. Of course it is also possible that your bands are ate up and you no longer have overdrive anymore. Try manually shifting from drive to overdrive see if that helps.

Shifts rough in 1st gear and lose overdrive at times


on the older style blazers the fan clutches did fail and would often be misdiagnosed as shifting problems as the clutch engaged and disengaged.... also a hard 1-2 shift can be due to your vehicle storing a transmission fault code in the ecm... some transmission fault codes will put the transmission into a fail safe or limp mode in which it engages high line pressure .... this can cause your hard 1-2 shift and will feel normal most of the time other than that. high mileage on the transmission fluid may also require it to be flushed and have the filter kit replaced

Car will not shift into overdrive


As a response to solution #1 these cars do have an overdrive while in D-4, mine was shifting in and out at 70 mph until it finally quit and the rpm is now 3100 at 70 mph insted of 2700. The car still shifts 4 full times just not the fifth-OD. I still can't find out what fixes this problem either.

What are these buttons for? e t c drive & side of shifter


The ETC switch is a transmission control device. When it is not active, the transmissions shifts normally. When the ETC is engaged, it alters the shift points.
Example: the 1-2 upshift occurs normally between 18-20 mph. Now, say you are towing something, or are carrying a heavy load...engage the ETC, and the trans computer will "hold" the 1-2 upshift until 22-24 mph. It is just for that, prolonging the shift points, due to load.

The switch on the side of the shifter is for the Overdrive. Engaged (the OD light is off) the transmission shifts into overdrive. This saves you gas. When the button is dis-engaged (the OD OFF light is on) , the transmission does NOT shift into overdrive. It is best to leave the overdrive ON, and the ECT OFF to obtain maximum fuel mileage. I hope this has answered your question. Please feel free to comment back if you have any other questions. Thanks for chosing FixYa for assistance.
