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.

What causes a 1993 toyota vienta to heat up excessively

Coolant level low, thermostat stuck closed, radiator fans failed, head gasket leak to coolant jacket

After checking the coolant level, look at the radiator fans when it is very hot to see if they operate.

If OK, have a mechanic do a simple check for combustion gases in the coolant, and a compression check on all cylinders. This is not expensive.

If OK, change the thermostat and flush the radiator.

No shift 1 to 2 gear but yuo move the stick to 1 for few seconds and later put in D works good 1993 toyota camry 2.2 LT automatic

it may be a lazy solenoid on the valve body inside the transmission pan. the best way to find out is to get the vehicle diagnosed with an OBD2 scantool. it can look into the information on your transmission and see if there is an electrical issue

Dives just fine in 1 and 2 gear but wont work in drive or 3rd but the engine doesn't over heat and works normally but drive and 3rd doesn't work

You could have a malfunctioning Shift Solenoid(s) in your transmission, take your truck to a Transmission Shop or a reputable Mechanic to have it diagnosed properly.

Auto transmission will not go into high gear.

Just went thru this on my 93 240. There's a solenoid inside the glove box, on the left side that needed replacing, with age it started getting fussy, and one day I had overdrive, and the same afternoon I didn't, then next day it was fine, then it wasn't, and so on...Most annoying driving around in 3rd all day....Anyways, the part was about 75$ at a dealer, and installation was about 5 minutes...Solved the problem just fine...Also have your mechanic check the shift needed changing at the same time as the solenoid...jda/boston
