Hi Margo,

Have a look at this thread which summarises my current problem. If your issue sounds similar then I fear that it is the ECU that is playing up. It's a common problem in the early 4.2's and is fixable.

Hope this helps,

Jim

......and I get the impression on here Margo that one should limit the driving of a car with this fault, as it can and will wreck your auto gearbox......ye dinnae want that.....££££

Almost cetainly the ECU is faulty!

Please refer to the link firemac Jim suggested and all the info. you require is there.

My Rav, a late 2001 Auto had exactly as the symptoms you describe and by sending the unit to ECU Testing at Heanor, they diagnosed and sorted the problem in no time at all.

Don't delay, it will not cure itself!........................................

I have no link with this company other than being a very satisfied customer.

Regards
