This can have several causes. You could try 2 transmission fluid changes first to see if the fault was a bit of dirt somewhere.
Then, is your O/D light blinking? This will indicate the ECM has stored a code indicating what the trouble area is. If there is no O/D light with the O/D switch in or out both, the globe has failed, and it first needs to be replaced so you can read the trouble code. For that your instrument cluster needs to be removed, not a difficult job. See here p111

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/bo.pdf



Note you only need to do Steps 19, 20, 23
The transmission fault main suspects would be
- vehicle speed sensor fault. The ECM doesn't know what speed you are doing
- 1 to 2 shift valve fault. Possibly dirt.
- less likely is a fault with the shift solenoids. The fault code should tell you about that.

    From what you have said it appears the mechanic has not sufficiently justified a replacement transmission. I can think of only 2 reasons for refusing to consider these possible faults, he hasn't a clue what is wrong, or, he is intent on charging you a bundle. I did not just invent these likely culprits, they come from the Camry troubleshooting procedure for the A140 transmission. Yours may be a later version, but it is standard stuff, see p68:http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/ax1.pdf... Admittedly conducting a thorough checkout is a specialist job, involving check voltages and port pressures at each shift. I'd ditch this guy, and visit a couple of specialist transmission shops.

  • WM HUSTON Jan 13, 2013

    .GEOFFW1 do you think that WHEN the tranny selanoids A AND B were changed that theycould still be the probleb...with 1400 miles would the shop be responsabile

    Yes, A and B = 1 and 2. A shudderous shift points to a sticking shift valve.

If the transmission in a 1998 Toyota Camry is failingwill that cause the motor to misfire


Generally no, it will not. A failing trans will cause bad shifting, hard shifting, slippage in gear, but not misfiring. Get a readout from your ECU to see if any trouble codes are held.

Why is my o/d light of my toyota camry blinking and why does it not have power


Almost certainly your No 1/2 shift solenoid has failed in the auto trans. This causes it to be unable to find low gear, hence the sluggishness. It is a common thing in older Camrys.

It is a simple repair once the tranny pan is taken off, but that is all best done on a hoist. You may as well have the internal filter changed as well.
