No decelleration

A few days ago I noticed my fj does not decellerate when I take my foot off the gas. What repairs do I need to make?

Re: No decelleration

Have you changed anything lately?

Like removed roof rack, increased tire psi, or swapped diff fluids?

I get what you're saying. Toyota trucks downshift aggressively to slow you down instead of coasting. I believe it's in the owners manual. AI downshift or something like that.

Re: No decelleration

Is it possible the FJ wasn't warmed up and is still in fast idle and not slowing down as quickly as you are used to?

Might disconnect the battery to try and reset the computer. Sounds like a blessing to me lol. I hate how aggressively mine slows down

Re: No decelleration

Mine seems to also do this, it coasts more and I have to use the brakes were as before it would slow down faster by itself.
I will mention this at next oil change which is not far off.

Thanks for the reply's. I did not change a thing, I noticed it was judt coasting no down shifts. I will try the battery reset. It has to be electronic, I originally thought a speed sensor or something along those lunes.

Thanks for that, I will look in the owner's manual. I hope there are suggestions in there.
