I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid
That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.
Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.

This is a known condition. And, is under warranty.
Take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership. Ask them to replace your ECU per TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) TC015-07. The new ECU has redesigned logic that rectifys your condition.

Sean Pried it could be your A604 4 Speed Automatic Transmission Shift Solenoid which is located just in front of your transmission dip stick.

Kenhoneycutt, Not undermining keemo68's suggestion as ill given, I wouldn't necessarily use that Lucas additive in your transmission. Is your "check engine" light on? If so, it would be prudent finding out what codes are stored before advancing. It is a good suggestion of having your transmission's fluid changed by dropping down the trans pan and taking a look at what resides in the bottom of the pan. It shouldn't be anything more than a slightly grayish to black "film" deposit laying on the bottom. There shouldn't be any major amounts of brass or aluminum. I would wash that film out, making sure it is dry, replace the filter, then reinstall the pan. Then disconnect the trans cooler lines and flush the cooler out using some compressed air and brake kleen making sure it has all been removed, then reinstalling the lines. At this point, I would install the recommened amount of transmission fluid using ATF+4 trans fluid. Not ATF3 or anything else, not even the Chrylsers brand of ATF fluid. All the other ATF's were insufficiant due to foaming of the fluids. The replacement of your transfluid should clean most of the varnish deposits from your trans because of it's high detergent properties. If you do have the "check engine" light on, most probably you'll have a P0700 code with one or more additional codes stored. Without knowing what these are, the most probable problem would reside in your "shift solenoid pack." The shift solenoids are what put the trans thru the different gears. If the computer sees a fault with this pack, it will only allow it to remain in 2nd gear "limp home" mode Disconnecting the connector at this pack and examining it for corrosion or dirt, poor connection...etc. would be next. After that, I would replace this "solenoid pack" and see what happens. Chrysler had beaucoup problems with these.

There is a small pipe threaded plug on the drivers side of the tranny about half way up the body and aroun the rear center from front to rear. When removed,fluid should flow from the hole(providing the vehicle is level on all axises), if not, fill to top of the hole with new gearoil or tranny fluid whichever is specified in your manual. Thank you, Dana

Testimonial: "Thank you for the info. I thought that was the plug used to check the fluid level, but wasn't sure, since the ownwer's manual just says to check it."
