    Hi guys. I'm new to the 4Runner group. I just bought a 98 4runner limited with an auto. It drives in 4lo just fine, but when I put it in neutral I can shift shift it into hi. Then when I try to put it into drive or reverse the transfer case jumps back into neutral. The guy I bought it from thought it was a bad transfer case. Has anybody experienced this? Thanks

    Start with replacing the bushings and lightening the linkage. It's the simple things that work in alot of cases.
