1989 Toyota Camry automatic transmission starting off on high gear.Stalls on drive like pulling heavy loads.


It is quite likely to be a failed shift solenoid, causing inability to find low gears. There should be a trouble code stored, causing the O/D lamp to blink.

I would have trouble changing gears in my Rover 75 after around 15 minutes of driving. About 2 months later my head gasket blew. Could these problems of been related?


No, the problem with the head gasket would not be related-just bad coincidence for you.
Sounds like the synchronizer gears in your transmission are worn-that will make shifting difficult. The shop must have checked the clutch operation, if they put in a new clutch master cylinder
If it is the synchronizers, you'll just have to put up with it till you decide to replace or repair the transmission. (My toyota has a bad synch. for 3rd gear-hard to downshift-but I just live with it-too expensive to fix.)

If the shifter moves but does not feel like it is trying to put car in gear the cable that goes from the shifter to the transmition could have broke or came loose. If that happened while driving the gears may have tried to shift when tension was released from the cable.

I would change the transmission filter and fluid first. It could be that your filter is old and stopping the transmission from working properly.

If a transmission fluid and filter change does not solve the problem, then it's time for a transmission rebuild or replacement. This can often happen if the car was driven improperly, such as sudden stops and starts, jamming the clutch into gear (in manuals), down shifting while the car is in another gear or from old age.

Your transmission is "downshifting" which is a normal function...However if it's happening early, the throttle cable may be out of adjustment. This does not happen in 3rd gear because that's how the system is designed. Downshifting is a 4 (od) to 3rd gear shift...if already in 3rd, this won't happen. As long as trans shifts normally on flat ground with no slipping or delayed shifts, just service it regularly and it should be fine.

Tranny trouble


Sounds like your idle controll sensor, it most commonly looks like a spark plug, it plugs in to the side of the transmission, near the belle housing. But for now try a quart of lucas oil in your transmission, if that causes it to shift, then your bands are stretched, and most likely need a transmission.
