Hi and Welome to

Changing the Gearbox oil is fine but this is nothing to do with your clutch slipping, sounds has if you need to replace the whole clutch unit.
Best regards.

lost engine power, or transmission slips????
which is it?
the engine rpm tells you if the engine is weak or transmission slips.
2.0 liter , DOHC I4, J20 engine.
which transmission, my guess A/T box. (sounds like?) sure..
test one
1: in drive. pointed in safe direction, say a field or ?
2: parked, hand brake and foot brake held hard and fast.
3: race engine to wide open throttle for 1 to 3 seconds.
and lift right foot. after noting RPM. quckly.
4: rpm below 2200 rpm is a weak engine , if the engine spools
wildly up to 3500 rpm or more, the transmission is bad. (slips)
this is called the stall test. (in the FSM)
2,300 - 2,600 r/min. for H25/J20 engine
stall test passes. so does the transmission reach 4th gear.
1,2,3,4? yes/ .no.
yes, the its not the transmission.
if engine power lacks in any gear, that is the engine. weak.

this post is about the engine power, (my answer)
will you change 100 more parts guessing?
why do that?, any shop can diagnose it for a fraction of your guessing.

if the trans dont slip
  1. over heating? the engine?
  2. never done a tuneup this decade?> really?
  3. low fuel pressure?
  4. low engine compression.?
  5. Bad MAF sensors or just dirty?
  6. check engine light on running?, why ignore that, scan it.
  7. weak spark , see #2 and 6
  8. leaking or clogged injectors. or stuck on, for 2 reasons.
  9. Intake vacuum air leaks>?

both the engine and transmissions are complex
as is the vast number of tests to do. based on previous tests and logic.
do you want to test or gue$$?

Key will not turn on.steering is is in park

try shaking steering wheel from left to right while at the same time turning the key towards the "on" position.if you're parked on a hill,this is not unusuall. it happens at times. you may need to release the parking brake and shake the car backwards and forwards to release the car from park. suggest you enlist a couple volunteers to assist. MAKE SURE YOUR VOLUNTEERS DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OR REAR OF THE CAR AT ANYTIME. rock the car back and forth while turning the key to the on position.this works 90 per cent of the time. sometimes when parking on a hill this happens. in the future when parking on a hill,1st put the emergency brake on,then apply parking brake to insure of this issue. then put the car in park. as a retired tow truck driver i have seen this's not uncommon for the transmission to bind when parked on a hill,or up against a curb,not on a hill. wish you the best of luck,if you need further assistance,please repost your question to

Sometimes the automatic transmission shift in my 91 Firebird gets stuck in park and will not shift into drive or any other position. could this be because of the shift lock solenoid failing? what other...

Could be the brake safety switch, there is an override for it, consult your owner's manual or check with the dealer for the location.
If you are parked on a grade (hill) it will put pressure on the parking pawl and make it hard to shift out of park. If you park on a non-level surface, put the parking brake on while you still have your foot on the brake in drive, then put it in park.

sounds like the torque converter clutch is slipping in the transmission-next time it starts doing this-instead of letting off on the gas tap the brake with your left foot-if it goes away i would be 98 percent sure that it is the torque converter clutch slipping(internal transmission problems)

2009 Toyota Camry problems

All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.

Rolls excessively forward when downhill and put in reverse

No, it is not normal. Most people use only one foot when driving, no matter the conditions. However, in this situation I think you may be able to recover this issue by keeping your left foot on the brake, put the car in gear, LIGHTLY apply the gas then slowly remove your foot from the brake. However, I would strongly recommend that you take your vehicle to a shop that can service your transmission and see what they say. It could be just a simple adjustment.
