1990 Toyota Cressida ProblemsAutomatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
Our technicians tell us that it is important to change the coolant with factory coolant and replace the thermostat every 60,000 miles. The will help protect the head gasket, otherwise the head gasket can deteriorate and be stressed to the point of failure.
