The FSM covers this.
simple voltmeter checks.

first is to scan the TCM. that too in the FSM book.
or at alldata.com ,log in. and see.

1996 is transitional year,
in that CPM scans get the TCM errors. or not.
if not, then the TCM has its own blinking light codes, that too is in the FSM. (can vary by year, and submodel of camry and engine size.)

They had a problem with this plastic washer that is in the shifter tower it sits just under the shifter it self and gets worn out and causes this to happen- hope that helps.

I have 88 Chevrolet 1500 4.3 and will not shift out of first in drive first gear doesn't slip and it still has reverse


Check fluids. Start, warm up to operating temp. With foot on brake and at stop, shift through all gears, P, R, N, D, 2, 3, etc. pausing 2 seconds in each gear, then go all the way back through the gears, pausing 2 seconds in each gear still. Check the transmission dipstick. Should be in range. Too much, or too little will cause bad behavior. If fluid is good, it could be the tranny or the 1-2 shift solenoid. Some are external on the tranny and replaceable. Good luck!

A/T tranny issues. (solenoid )
my auto tranny is slipping in call gears. forward and reverse?
there are no guessing, just tests.
check all fuses.
check AFT levels using the operators guide, (dont guess at ways, do it right way, as 99% dont)
so DRIVE is stuck in 1st gear, or 2nd?
the connect the jumper for the TCM, and get the flash codes.
if it says VSS is dead, then it is.
why wonder this. the TCm will not lie, it will see any bad VSS signals and report them on all cars made. but has flash codes this year.
there are 3 or 4 paths here

1; inputs to TCM wrong, sure it will shift wrong. how could it not.
2: TCM bad , it has good inputs and its outputs are wrong.
3: the TCM to tranny connections are bad, (corrosion)
4: the Solenoids have the correct inputs but fail to work.
bad solenoids or far far worse.
note the order here.. only this works unless guessing with $1500 fist of dollars is ok.

the FSM covers each tests. from 1 to 4.
for on car tests. if the solenoid tests pass its a bad tranny.

Reverse is rough, with intermittent grabbing, not slippage. I have replaced both s1 and s2 solenoids but dash light arrow still flashes. Prior to replacing the solenoids the transmission was in limp mode...


It sounds as if the seals are bad in your transmission and they are allowing fluid to slip past them. This results in the transmission not completely engaging in gear and being extremely slow to shift into gear.

You can try a few capfuls of break fluid in the tranny. This will swell the seals and allow them to seal better. This is not a permanant fix however, this will only temporarily get your tranny working for an undertermined amount of time. I used this fix on a turbo trans 350 and I got about a year of life out of it.

Beyond that I believe you may be looking at a tranny rebuild or replacement.

Tranny slips & wont shift past 2nd gear


Ok, you will need to first check the fluid level in this transmission. if the trans is sealed, you will need to take to the dealer for a fluid check. assuming that the fluid level is proper, this will usually be caused by a faulty transmission control module and faulty shift solenoids as well. these devices are located on and inside the trans and i recommend testing each device for flaws.


Most slips are the result of gear ware but, the solenoids and TCM will cuse this issue as well.

Tranny slips in reverse


Reverse clutches are burnt. Clutch material is getting into valve body causing late shifts since valves can't move. transmisison will have to be overhauled. wish i had better news. sorry

1995 cadilac deville has problem shifting from 1 to 2 gear


You don't have torque converter shudder. You don't even mention that in your original post! You def had a solenoid issue. My 94 STS did the same thing. I only had reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. Wouldn't shift outa 2nd period. It was a $200 solenoid repair. Car had a 160K on it when that happened. I have almost 170k on it now. Shifts and works fine. you don't need the tranny replaces ad josavv63 indicates.

Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.


I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.
