Question about 1989 Toyota Camry
1989 Camry-four cylinder----There are, depending on which dealership/parts place I speak with, one or three electric switches that govern the transmission. I can see one, which is mounted on top of the trans housing with a threaded collar to the electrical line. I haven't been able to spot any others. Is there also a 'speed sensor' switch?Currently, I can't pass a smog test because the trans goes from low to third, even if I have the shifter in the #2 auto trans position. This results in a very high reading on one of the emissions (too much fuel being injected at low RPM?). The switches run from $200.00 to $300.00 each. What's my best first purchase, or can a solenoid be cleaned? I have a feeling that this car sat, in a salt-air environment, for some several years. The switch may be corroded. Thanks, Bob
I would consider getting another car for the price they want for the parts for that one. at leaset get one that will pass emission tests
