A few days ago my truck went dead after getting off the interstate. Cranked up and ran fine seconds later. Then I noticed that it was shifting late sometimes. Not always. Today on the way home I made a stop and when I got back on the road it won't shift out of first (auto). Any ideas?

Thanks!

Sounds like a tps problem. Maybe one of these guys that know more will chime in.

I have been told that but haven't had a chance to get the codes read. I guess I'll be in the FJ40 till I figure it out.

The tranny thing makes sense since it has 188k on the stock tranny. Not too shabby since all I hear is that they are junk.

Talked to the folks at dieseltrans.com today and they told me to check the trans. output sensor and the gov. solonoid. I've got part numbers. Hope it's one of those. Much cheaper than the trans!

On the back of your tranny there is a sensor, I can't remember the name but it is like 20 dollars at autozone

U can cycle the key on and off 3 times leaving it on the third time and it will diplay the codes in the odometer window. If it is the TPS do an APPS search on here. U can adjust and reset the APPS. I was throwing an Apps code and just finished redoing mine and the truck drives great again with no codes. totally fixed dead pedal problem.

Well... it's fixed! $17.00 speed sensor (trans. output sensor) was the culprit. Better than the alternative! Thanks for the help!

That won't work on a 99. I didn't have a check engine light. Could there still be a code even if there is no light. I'm good to go now with the new speed sensor. Just wondering.
