W56B Will not Shift into 3rd
« on: Nov 11, 2015, 01:52:20 PM »
New to the board and looking for some help.  Just picked up an 86 4-runner in fairly good condition.  This will be my hunting/fishing ride, not a DD.  Only major issue is that it will not shift into 3rd.  At idle it will slip out of first.  All the other gears are fine.  I pulled the shifter and the seat and the socket do not look overly worn, however there is a lot of slop in the shift pattern.  Before I order a new seat and socket, I was hoping some one on here has seen this before and have any idea what could cause it.  Thanks in advance for any help.

I know this is a long dead post, but I am hoping you found the issue since I have exactly the same problem.
