My truck is a 2001 Tacoma 2.7 liter, automatic 4x4, access cab pickup. I have been having problems lately with the transmission not shifting into Overdrive. It seems it will only make it to the fourth gear. Before it would shift fine, then if it downshifted automatically from the 5th gear into the 4th it would stay there. Also lately it has been going into higher RPMs before shifting on all gears up to 2-3 rpms. At 60mph on highway it will stay at 3 rpm?? I'm not sure what to do. I have NOT change the transmission fluid, the fluid looks fine, not burnt. Toyota put a new frame, Iam the 2nd owner.
One other problem, it seems when toyota put the new frame on they did not tighten the exhaust manifold bolts when they put everything back together, now it is leaking. I can see that one nut is loose on the exhaust, and it looks like there is a small crack on the end of the manifold near the exhaust manifold bolts? I don't believe that is there fault? But I'm not sure. The A/T P light has came on on the cluster instrument panel, when you put it in drive, it goes away. When you put it in Park it turns on. They also didn't tighten the emergeny brake cable and that fell off along with the nut that holds it on??? Where do you start, seems like one thing after another.
Also I'm new on here, lol so hello to everyone, and thanks for any help you can give.
