Driving 65 MPH and engine rpm goes to 7K. Not in O.D. light comes

My 94 Toyota Camryhas 2.2 engine with automaic transmission. It has 97K miles on it. This will freak you out! Driving 65 mph, level goung, with cruise control on. The motor revs to 7K, not the speed, just the motor. The O.D. not on came on. I cut the key off and came to a stop.
Started the car up and drove home, no problem. PLEASE tell me what's going on.

    Im young and I don't know much about car engines but mine does it sometimes. It doesnt go all the way to seven but it will go to six and then it will kind of shift I guess and then itll be fine. Sometimes the car drives really good. I don't know what's wrong.

Sound to me like it maybe a faulty sensor in the transmission. take your car to someone with an ODB reader and see if a transmission fault is indicated. you may have to take your car to a transmission shop.

Hi. I purchased a 1991 Toyota Camry LE last summer. It is an automatic, 3-spd with overdrive. Sometimes it will not shift into overdrive and I figured I had a repair issue. When finally I read through the manual I learned that the transmission will not go into overdrive until the engine has warmed up to a certain temperature. For my car that happens when the temp gauge pointer gets past the line that is just above the "C". The same holds true for the tramsmission lock-up feature. Hope this helps. Bob

DATA:
7K (wiki)
The 1.8 L (1,781 cc) 7K was first introduced in 1983. Cylinder bore was 80.5 mm (3.17 in) and stroke was 87.5 mm (3.44 in). Output was 80 hp (60 kW) at 4600 RPM and 103 lb·ft (139 N·m) at 2800 Was available with a 5 speed manual & 4 speed automatic transmission. Available in both fuel injected and carburetted configurations, the 7K produces much more power and torque compared to the other K engines however it is a lot less 'rev happy' due to having such a large stroke.
7K is available in KR42 Townace SBV vans (1997-2007) using a large G52 5 speed gearbox (Same bellhousing to box pattern as W55), or automatic.

Should I keep overdrive on or off? also should keep ECT on or off?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. I am Toyota Ed, and I will be assisting you today.

The Overdrive function allows the transmission to shift an extra time, sort of like selecting 5th gear in a 5 speed manual transmission. The Overdrive, when used, will save you gas, as the engine is no longer maintaining a high RPM at normal driving speed. Look at the tach whilst driving about 45 mph, and engage/disengage the OD. You will see the tach RPM raise when the OD is off.
More RPM = lower fuel mileage,

The ECT is a different circumstance. The ECT button is used primarily when you have a heavy load in the car, or are towing something. All the ECT button does, when it is engaged, is lengthen the shift points as the transmission upshifts. Normally, the transaxle will shift into 2nd gear at 18-21 mph. When the ECT is engaged, the transaxle will shift in the area of 22 -24 mph. In short, the ECT just makes the time to the 1-2 and the 2-3 upshift longer, to compensate for the additional load being carried/towed.

I hope my assistance answers your question.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today!

Oil light in 1999 Toyota camry comes on when idling.


bad to worn out oil pump or excessive oil passage clearances that allowing more oil to pass thru them at a lower pressure due to the bigger opening. It can be a sign of an emminant engine failure due to oil starvation.

I had the same problem, replacing you thermostat should do the trick, i spent 8.99 on a new thermostat and 99 cents on a seal. For some reason engine temperature affects the transmission shifting. Good luck

Not sure what is causing it, but it sounds like you're running on 3 cyllinders. Check plugs, wires, timing . timing belt may have jumped, bad injector, low fuel pressure.

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.


Automatic transmission are complex systems. The shifting of gears is based on a number of things like bands, speed, acceleration, deceleration, manifold back pressure, RPMs, temperature, etc.
Sometimes the electrical ground connection for the transmission can become corroded which causes poor shifting.
Since you are getting an error code, you should get a readout for it. Many auto supply store like Advance Auto will loan a meter for you to get a readout. Call up some stores to find one.

1992 Honda Accord EX 4 cylinder automatic [engine RPM change]


Hi!

It seems to be clutch problem.

There is a way to slightly adjust the idle,on the front of the throttle body where the intake boot is bolted on,abovt the boot and slightly to the left you will see a hole about 1/2 inch wide and it is plugged with grey epoxy like material. Using a flat head screw driver scrape the epoxy out of the hole and there is a flathead adjustment screw. You can adjust the idle up and down just a few hundred rpm. Hope this helps and let me know if there is any more direction you need.
Please rate this solution.

Thanks
