I have a 95 4runner 2wd with the 3.0 V6 and the auto transmission. Transmission will not shift at all on its own but shifts very smooth without problems when shifted manually through the gears. The O/D light also flashes.

I kinda doubt all the shift solenoids would go bad at once...is there a shift control module or sensor that could be causing this? Truck only has 145K and hasn't been abused at all.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

1MZFEfan,

Will it shift down to low and not up shift or does it stay in high gear making it difficult to move?

When you first put it in D it starts out in either 2nd or 3rd gear making it impossible to move. You have to put it in 1 and manually shift it through to D. I don't believe it is using Overdrive either. It has shifted down maybe once or twice on it's own but it won't up shift at all on it's own.

make sure your throttle postionns sensor is hooked up. I just did a engine swap and had the same problem and tht was the issue. forgot to plug it i. so if it comes undone or is bad then that will be ur issue. is u check engine light on?

That VSS is part of the speedo, but it doesn't affect operation of the speedo. I don't think it can be replaced except by replacing the speedo.
