I just started noticing my 2003 4Runner SR5 started having some issues and did a google search and landed here.
I had a 90K service about 6 months ago where I replaced the tranny fluid.
Lately I have been noticing that if I accelerate a bit more aggressively the tranny will not catch when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Is that normal? am I just giving it too much gas? or is this bad? I feel like that is really bad? have not experienced this before with this car.
Just this morning the tranny slipped again and this time while in second it started making a spinning whining / rubbing type of noise. It goes away when I am back in first gear.
Am I totally screwed?
This 4Runner had been babied by my father, always dealer serviced, and never even towed anything! barely has over 100k on it now... I feel like the tranny shouldnt be going dead already with virtually no work put on it (as far as towing and stuff)
Thank you for any advice in advance!
I have a 1999 4 Runner automatic V-6 2WD it has 221600 miles I've never had any problems with it I have always keep up with maintenance. I've changed timing belt 2 times with water pump & all hoses & belts and new radiator changed 3 years ago. All fluids & filters changed as needed. I'm having a slight problem with transmission when cold it takes for ever to get it to shift from 1st to 2nd once it's warmed up it will shift just fine could this be fixed by fluid and filter change?
