Question about Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Stiff gear shift

The mileage of the car is 72,000 and bought it few months ago. It was quite fine at first, but then started to make problems when you wanted to change the gears between reverse and parking . However, for the other gears, it works perfectly. The car has been serviced regularly, however, siv=nce it has not reached the 90,000 mileage yet, its transmission oil has not been changed. I took it to CMI Toyota and they couldn't find the reason. They charged me for 100 bucks and told me there was nothing stck in the mechanism, the tranmission oil was fine and they also said, changing the shift cable MAY! improve it.

Hi Sam ! Have checked whether is there any problem by the where the shifting lever is? might something there is not working properly since is from parking to Reverse. the other option I agree with the CMI Toyota to change the cable. I had the similar case in my garage but with Nissan March and renewed the cable and works fine.

SOURCE: Hard shifting starting in Drive Gear. Starting in

I agree with the suggestion to service the trans but no transX, just new fluid and a new fluid filter, if that doesn't help then you will need more seriou work.

SOURCE: ''O/D OFF'' SIGNAL ON THE DASHBOARD

The O/D off means your overdrive is off. Have you accidently bumped it? It could be the start of a problem with electrical system. Usually a bad ground on your O/D may cause this. Intermitten problems are the hardest to track down and fix. Do you know what overdrive does? It's a gas savings device which cuts the engine's RPM's down by something like 1/3, like a 5th gear. That's why you are experiencing the jerking on the highway. Do you have an owners manual? If not a good place to look for one is at a local salvage yard, or online even. There may be something in there to explain this to you a little better than I did. I had a frien who had a simular problem. It turned out to be a bad fuse. It wasn't blown, it was broken, and it's element would jiggle around when he would hit bumps in the road. I don't know if this helped you, but it will give you place to start looking.

SOURCE: 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, automatic transmission.

TCC(Torque Convertor Control(lockup)) sensor.Or another transmission control sensor. Bad sensor will cause erratic shifting. If your Check Engine light is on a code should show. Don't hesitate in getting a 2nd opinion. Try having Autoz... or another parts place hook it up. Add some Trans-x or other trusted additive to trans. fluid. Servos could be gummed up. WARNING: If you drive too long/many miles like that something really expensive will break.

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

SOURCE: Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse

Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

05 chrysler pacifica 0700 warning code and shifting problems


This is classic limp in mode. The computer won't let it shift to prevent further damage to the transmission. Gas mileage will go down because you're stuck in low gear. P0700 is a pretty general code. You need to get it to a shop for a diagnosis

1998 chevy k1500 4x4 4 speed auto.transmission wont shift out of 2nd gear. shifts fine from 1st to 2nd first and reverse is fine wont shift out of first, shift servos have been replaced.


Had a similar problem with same model pickup but would shift into third only after reaching high RPM in second @5000. There was TSB that came out about this a few years ago. I had to replace the valve body in the transmission to fix the problem and worked perfectly after that. Hope this helps!

Odometer quit working


Suggest you visit this website... http://www.hyperocity.com/volvo240/volvoodometer.htm
Odometer is turned by a mechanical gear wheel, which is the likely culprit.
