Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

92 Toyota Camry shifts Hard when cold

I have a 92 Camry 4 cylinders with AT. I bought this car that was stored for a long time and recently have been shifting really hard only when the car is cold and just from the park to drive gears and the rest as well as reverse is fine. also the car seems to be stuck on the 3rd gear and not shifting to the 4th if you get on a freeway before it warms up. the car has 110 K miles on it and when the trans. fluid flush was done recently, came out really burned out. When the car warms up all these troubles are gone and the transmission is acting normally. What could be the problem and is there a cheap way to diagnose and fix it? I'm a student and can't afford much right now and really think that rebuilding the trans. will be more money than what i paid for the car. Thank you for you help.

    Please excuse my lack of knowledge but can you explain how do I locate, identify and clean the linkage. Any type of lubricant would you recommend? Thanks again for all your help

Linkage could be sticky I would try to clean off any grease and dirt then spray some lubricant on the linkage this might help and it won't hurt it any .

    purchese a Hayes or Chilton manuel these books are very good at showing pictures of areas in question and they can give you more diagnostic advice.I use PB Blaster to free up componets and any type of silicone or if it is exposed outside the engine compartment i use a lube with a grease in it to stay on the surface so it does not get washed off from the road and rain water.

Get a readout from the car's computer to see if there is a trouble code stored, which will give a good clue to the problem.

Camrys of this age often have a shift solenoid fail in the transmission, which will cause the symptoms you describe,

Stupid engine light!!!


is it a V-6 or 4cyl. take it to autozone and have them retrieve the code...I have worked on all models of camrys...many problems can cause this like IAC valve(common on 4cyl) or timing is offset(very common on V-6). Transmission will not cause rough idle. Tacs on these models usually malfunction stemming from distributor cap/coil oil inside or just the tac itself. Hopefully this helps!!

How to replace timing belt in 1990 toyota camry LE,4 cylinders,front whell drive


It would be to hard to tell and show you over the computer.
The best way for you is to buy a Chilton manual for your car at the autoparts store. The book runs about $20
This book is a do-it-yourself bible. It will show you everything you need to know on how to do maintenance and repair on your vehicle.

it sounds like you ground the spacers between the gears. have a look under the gear shift. pull the gear shift off then look at the transmission spacers. you will see where the gear shift sits see if some spacers look like the rest.
