Question about Toyota Camry
I think it is more likely that the shift linkage requires adjustment, but yes, the transmission fluid should be drained and replaced (thru the dipstick tube) at least every 50000 km (30000 mi) or 24 months, more often if you tow anything.
After not being changed for a long period, it would be worth it to drain and refill, drive around for a week, then drain and refill again. This is because not all the old fluid will drain out the first time, some is trapped in the trans.

no need to change the transmission. just the fluid and filter in your transmission. 90.000 miles is really too far to go without the fluid and filter changed. your fluid needs changed as well as the filter in the transmission. i do recommend you add lucas transmission treatment to your transmission fluid and filter replacement though. it costs an extra $12.00 for the treatment but well worth it.if you have a sticky valve in your transmission,it will free it up and add extra life to all moving parts,i also recommend it in oil changes as well. you'll find that if you use the lucas,it will save money on fuel mileage and easy on the pocket book in the long run. i have 1994 ford explorer 4x4 with over 400.000 miles with no problems so far,just trying to do a million miles.i discovered lucas by accident 10 years ago and have been a faithful consumer so far as well as recommending it to my customers.they produce fuel,oil,transmission,and rear end treatments to those that still drive the rear wheel drive vehicles.your problem sounds like a stuck valve or sticky valve in your transmission,so i do recommend you have that fluid and filter changed whether you decide to use lucas or not. thank you for choosing fixya.com
