RPM Issue with 96 4runner

Posting for a friend: Auto tranny...The 4runner is not shifting until it winds way up...almost like the tranny is slipping. Are these trannys controlled by a TCM or what?

Do these trannys have input and output sensors that go bad? Like a solenoid that controlls the shifts...

There should be an "ETC Power" button on the dash, if this is on the trans will wait to shift at a higher RPM, the indicator bulb might be burnt out, but the switch could be on..... That's all I got...

Is that for towing or something? I can get more info from him and maybe we can figure it out. I will call him today and mention that.

The ECT - in the PWR position the button allows the engine RPM to go up about 500 RPMs between shifts. This gives the engine a chance to wind up for a little more torque. I had my 86 auto set for PWR all the time. I couldn't tell any difference in fuel mileage, but the truck seemed to have better throttle response.
