Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

My 96' Camry model won't accelerate when it is in the drive shift. Is my transmission fried even though my rpm meter is still increasing? The only shift the vehicle will move in is the reverse shift. I also checked the vehicle for transmission fluid but I believe that much of it has turned the brown color and it is not the actual red. Is it too late to save the vehicle before I have to get a new transmission?

If your fluid is dark brown and has a burnt smell to it i would have to say its either time for a new car or transmission

Why does the rpms on my 96 dodge grand caravan just keep going up when driving


It is common for rpm's to increase, as the acceleration increases... That is when the transmission comes into effect, when the RPMs increase, the next gear is then shifted into.
if the RPMs continue to increase, then the transmission is not shifting. It's possible that you have a transmission or torque converter problem.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

06 titan truck won't accelerate even when the gas


If the engine RPM's increase when the gas pedal is floored, you have a transmission problem or a problem with your shift cables.

If the engine RPM's don't change when the gas pedal is floored, you have a throttle pedal cable problem or throttle body problem.

You will need an experienced mechanic to diagnose this problem as it is very dangerous to operate the vehicle under these conditions.

Transmission only shifts in 4000 rpm range- see notes.


if it has a cable attached throtle body it needs slacking off big time, if its electriacl it needs a shift solenoid first. before you do anything check the fluid is it dirty and level ok, if all yes a new box.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

Try replacing your fluid filter in your transmission first. If that does not work, your tranny could have the gears wearing out. To solve the shifting problem, have a shift kit put in your transmission.
