1st & reverse gears not engaging

Old Girl.

Recommended Posts

we own a very faithful 1989, 4X4, toyota hilux, 3L, 2.8 D, LN106.  the engine purrs like a kitten, only problem is the gear box.  only will go into 1st & reverse

gears when the engine is stopped. question! as we live in the middle of Australia , Tennant Ck, NT, a long way from major cities, what is the best way to correct this problem. at this time it is unregistered & will require a road worthy pass to register.  would be grateful to any suggestions or ideas.

Suggest changing the transmission fluid. Consider replacing the transmission filter [if it has one]. Not sure if your gearbox has shift solenoids, but if so, remove then check/clean the fine mesh screens.
