HI all bit of noob to petrol engines but I currently have a 1998 rav4 5 door 2l petrol auto. It seems to try and hunt for gears when under load and seeks to be getting slowly worse. All fluids are up to level although an auto fluid change is on the cards and probably the filter (?) In the process.

My initial though was that the kickdown wasn't set right however I cant find a set way for it to be adjusted Haynes is next to useless but suggests it adjusted from the gearstick end. However tonight it started to hunt for revs when in overdrive (torque lock up) so I'm now wondering if it's more related tk engine not pushing out enough grunt and the box is unable to decide which gear for it?
Auto fluid is still red and smell unburnt.

Any thought on where to start?
