    Default Delay in gear change in Landcruiser

    Here I have problem with 1991 Toyota Landcruiser vx ltd, 4200cc diesel.

    When engine is cold and it is driven, for almost 3-4 kilometers engine revs but gear changes with delay. I have taken it twice to mechanic in Rawalpindi, and he changed something and oil, it does help for 2-3 days but it goes back to same again.

    Someone said that it is a turbo proble, I am not sure what exactly this is. Anyone have idea of what to do and where to go in Rawalpindi.

    Thanks

    whatcarman check the gear oil filter as it might be clogged and as oil is more viscous when it is cold there is a delay in gear change.it is usually a metallic filter all u have to do is wash it and then put in fresh gear oil.
    hope this helps.

    Whatcarman........my LC had the same delay in shifting, especially in the morning, causing the engine to sort of race engine a bit more than normal before shifting. Changing the transmission oil and filter fixed it.

    Well these are usually first signs of the Auto clutch pack being worn. Do as the others say and might help as it does in most cases other wise you need to replace clutch pack along with valve body and filter.

    @drmac, @charterali, @alphaX, Racerf1

    Thanks guys. Oil has been changed twice in last six months, last gear oil change was less than a month ago and mechanic also cleaned filter. But same again.

    Engine revs and vehicle moves, say for 400-500 meters, when I see that revs goes up to mark 3 but still it does not change the gear. One short term solution I found is take the gear back to manual mode on position 2, where it gives a shoot.

    Now as Racerf1 said to change clutch pack, valve body and filter, seems no other option if this is the only solution.
