Toyota Cressida Transmission Additives

Car Information:
Toyota Cressida
Year: 1980
Engine Size: 6 cycle
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
The vehicle has 48000 original miles. It runs good but I have to warm it up at least 10 minutes before I take off. If not the transmission will not shift properly and it will slip. After it warms up it runs great.

Answer:
You may want to try one of the miracle transmission additives available at one of the discount part places. If that does not work its time for an overhaul. Seals are hard and won’t seal until the fluid gets warm.

Overdrive Light

Car Information:
Toyota/Cressida
Year: 1992
Engine Size: 6
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
You responded to my transmission question about a week ago and and I now have some more accurate info after driving my wife’s car myself for a few days. The transmission is actually skipping second gear, going into third gear and staying there and not shifting into overdrive. At that time the OD light comes on. I had to drive the car all day before this happened, so it is sporadic. Is this going to be bad news or hopefully something simple?

Answer:
A-340-E Transmission. I would install a 1-2 shift solenoid and see if that fixes it.
