Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
Just bought this car,runs great but has no take off speed.shifts manually trough low to drive with plenty of zip but still no o/d.tranny has been over filled by previous owner is also dirty.I dont think this is the problem and will correct that.I have been told low and o/d could be on the same solenoid.Is this true?How should I approach this the most cost affective way?
Almost certainly your No 1 shift solenoid has failed. It is fitted as a pair with the No 2 solenoid, and to replace them the trans pan has to be removed. You may as well replace the internal filter in the trans at the same time.

Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.
96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.

Thnaks for the response back, Carol.
I am rather certain that your issue will be fixed by the replacement of your thermostat. Why?
You have stated the the temp gauge is lower than half at times...this leads me to believe that your thermostat is sticking open slightly...The science here is the fact that the OD is prevented from activating until the coolant temperature reaches 177 degrees F. This is controlled by the temperature sensor in the cooling system, and is part of the emissions package. It is not adjustable. The OD is prevented when the coolant is below 177 to reduce possible hydrocarbon spikes (emissions) at the tailpipe. In short, cool engine temps lead to high emissions, especially when the vehicle has engaged OD. Replace the thermostat, and you might as well replace the coolant at the same time. I am pretty sure this will cure your issue. The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for choosing FixYa!

Trying to solve same problem on my 1994 ford Taurus. So as I see it just need to rethink what we did wrong to begin with and we could have put one of the wires on wrong (in wrong placement) or bad conection.
