Sounds like when you pulled the cv axles you may have unplugged an electrical connector or vacuum line from the transmission. If this is not the case, did you make sure the transmission fluid levels are proper?

SOURCE: 99 Corolla is slow to up shift.

take it to a local mechanic and ask him to check the solenoids in the transmission, they will probably do it for little to nothing, its a quick electronic diagnosis, thats what the problem sounds like to me, hope this helps! and good luck, Please rate me!

SOURCE: 2003 toyota echo when shifting above 45 mph makes a loud high rpm noise especially on the highway

If it is not going into overdrive or lockup it could be the fluid or an electrical problem. Some of the shifting is controlled by solenoids now.
You may have to get a transmission shop to evaluate it for you.

I have a 95 Toyota Corolla and this evening I suddenly heard a clicking sound as I accelerate and then it goes away as I accelerate

This is most likely being caused by a defective outer axle CV joint in the front wheel drive, the grease boot may be torn.

My Olds alero 01 2.4 has a metallic tapping noise when in drive, oil pressure light flickers on left turns only, and rpms jump and car bucks at over 65mph. Oil level is fine, just changed it. 72k

The tapping must be a drive train problem, not the engine where it would be tapping all the time. It could be a transmission/transaxle internal problem, or it could be a bad CV joint on the drive shafts. The drive shafts, or half shafts as they are called-one for each side of the car-connect the transaxle to the wheels, and the CV joints on the shafts allow for turning movement and for car suspension movement, while maintaining constant power to the wheels.

As for the oil light and the car bucking, I really would have a shop check the engine's oil pressure to see if it is acceptable. The light only comes on or even flickers at very low oil pressure, and that could be worrisome. It could cause expensive engine repairs. So I suggest you have an oil pressure check along with the tapping in drive, and go from there. They all sound like unrelated events, but you never know.

In my 95 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 just had the transmission rebuilt 3 weeks ago I was driving down the road and it shifted 1st to 2nd fine but from 2nd to 3rd it reved up all the way to 4500 rpms before...

That could be a perfect reason to take it back to the shop where it was just repaired for repeat service. Either that or you spun out in the mud.

Transmission solenoid

the torque converter clutch solenoid / servo will not give any drive action if faulty
the transmission if operating fine in all gears with no noises will not need replacing
save money by going to an accredited transmission specialist shop and have the fault codes read first then replace the problem sensor , servo or solenoid

I would say the rear driveshaft is either in need of lubrication or replacement.

Overdrive factors

When the car is just cruising along at approx.50+ MPH push the O/D button. You should feel the gears change higher and if you have an RPM guage then it should drop as well to fewer RPMs. This would be normal driving conditions. O/D will not kick in until the last regular gear (3rd or 4th depending on model)  had been shifted into. O/D automatically kicks out when slowing down and the transmission shifts to a lower gear. Thus the O/D has no function at slower speeds/gears and does not need to be shifted ( on or off ) except in the very first example given here.
