First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first

With such a small engine, the automatic Echo won't shift into overdrive (4th gear) until a certain engine/transmission temperature is reached. This is to protect the bearings and gears from too much torque and stress while the oil is still cold and not flowing at it's optimum level. Usually when the blue "cold" light on the dash shuts off, the transmission will up-shift to 4th. When it is very cold, it could take another few minutes of driving before it will do so.

2003 toyota echo when shifting above 45 mph makes a loud high rpm noise especially on the highway


If it is not going into overdrive or lockup it could be the fluid or an electrical problem. Some of the shifting is controlled by solenoids now.
You may have to get a transmission shop to evaluate it for you.

Gear shifter is broken


When you say it is broken do you mean it won't move into certain gears?

In past couple days our '04 Echo shifting lever won't go into Park or 2 or Lo gear. And we couldn't take the key out of the ignition. My husband took to center console cover off and when he loosened the bolt under the lever we were able to get it into park and get the key out. But still cannot get into the lower gears. Will probably be taking it to a transmission shop before making major decision.

If your's is an automatic trans, and it is locked in park, there is a small opening on the right/front side of the shifter, pop the top and press the white button, it releases the lever.

Good Luck!

My 2000 Toyota 4runner V6 125k miles automatic transmission started slipping on cold starts especially in the morning. After starting up, putting in drive and pressing the gas pedal first gear doesn't...


Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

Trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th


DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.
