Gearchange on RAV4

Asked by E.H. Woodbine, NSW.

The automatic transmission in my 2001 Toyota RAV4 is slipping when changing gears, and at times it won't accelerate when I depress the accelerator after stopping at traffic lights. What would be causing this problem? Should I take my car in for a normal service, or should I take it to an automatic transmission specialist?

It sounds like the auto trans needs servicing. If you have a   regular mechanic you trust have him test drive it for you for an   assessment, but I reckon you need to take it to an auto trans mechanic.
