--- ATF QUANTITY & TOOLS--
Just more info for you. You do not want to overfill the ATF. I have the same 98 Camry 2.2L 4 cyl, it specifies for a drain & fill, it uses 2.5 qt. ATF.
The drain plug is a 10mm hex key, so you need the 10mm hex "male" to stick it in and loosen with a ratchet. Tighten with 30 ft. lb. when you are done draining.
The 4 cyl uses a filter too, you don't have to change it every time you change your ATF. Probably good to do it every 2 yr or 30K mi. You can buy the Pro-King ATF filter for this car for $11; make sure you get the one for "the 15-bolt version" transmission, as you'll need to loosen 15 bolts before you get to see the filter.
--- FLUID CHOICE ---
For cheapest way, you can buy the SuperTech Dex III from Wal-Mart for $10/gal. Or Step up some and buy the good one fro mValvoline MaxLfe Dex/Mer ATF for $18/gal.
In owner's manual it calls for Dex II or compatible Dex III. Realistically Dex II is discontinued for years, Toyota really uses the "Mobil 3309" ATF, which you can still buy some from Wal-Mart or auto part store if you care to use the OEM fluid.

I have a power steering leak on my 1998 Toyota Camry. I have been using over the counter stop leaking fluids, but it has not helped. It leaks more during the cold weather as oppose to hot weather. Deme

The cleaning is by flushing. DO NOT LET THEM FLUSH YOUR TRANNY! It will do nothing but damage the tranny.
For as fluid. the 3.2 quarts is if you dont drain the torque converter. If you drain the converter then it will take about 14 to 16 quarts.
The reason i say do not let them flush the tranny is because they force the fluid backwards through the system and that will damage it. Also if the tranny is almost on its last "leg" and you may not know it. Then all that will do is speed the process up.

you didn't make clear you have a automatic trasmission or manual?
if is a manual trasmission you have to look the clutch and to valves that is puting the trasmision oil pressure to move the clutch one at the end near the gear box and the second after the clutch pedal outside of the cabin imediatley after the pedal. you have to look to the oil level in the rezervoir, if you dont have the problem to bay some oil and to change completely the oil first maybe the right solution to begin with oil change first , may be is freeze from the dirties finded in the oil pipes and valves.
if you have the automatic trasmission sorry i dont know, because the problems there are more complex.
