Asked by Sep 14, 2013 at 05:36 PM about the 2002 Lexus RX 300

in O/D began to surge once in awhile, today shifted hard at passing gear then would only drive 1st or 2nd gear low speed

It could be that the rapid demand sucked up some crud off the bottom of the pan and it got through the filter and plugged up the shift solenoids or the filter is just plain plugged, but have a professional check it out, the RX trannies have problems, after I serviced the one I had, I put in "lube guard" for Toyotas and never had any trouble with the trans, I had 135000 when it got totaled.
