People With '02+ Es300 W/ 5spds

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 Es300. It has a 5 speed trans. IF I put the gear selector in D it never shifts out of 4th gear. If i put it in 4 and drive it stays in 4 and manually shifting into D does nothing. The car revs at about 3200 rpms 60 Mph and 3600 at 80 MPH.

I know this is to high and I'm pretty sure it's not going into Overdrive.

Anyone know anyhting about this? Am i missing a switch?

Good question? Whats the factory powertrain warrantys? Mine is a 2002 with 26,000 miles on it. I will have to find out the purchase date.

Powertrain is 6 years or 70k miles......get the in service date. Awefully low mileage to have a tranny with an overdrive problem.

:cheers:

I'm having the same problem. In "D" it never makes it out of 4th gear. Definitely over 3000 RPM at 70 MPH. Did you resolve it?

Welcome Matt......what is your mileage currently & if below 70k miles do you know if it falls under the 6 year/70k powertrain warranty?

It has... wait for it.... less than 20k miles!!! We just bought it from my wife's Grandmother who can no longer drive. I don't know, however, if it's past the six years. If it's not we are just under the wire. I should point out that when I move the shifter from park to drive, 4th gear lights up. If I move it to 4th and back it still says 4th. If I move it to 3rd 2nd 1st the instrument panel reflects the changes. Basically the car can not tell the difference between the shifter in 4th or drive positions.
