SOURCE: check engine light/2003 toyota CE

I have a 2005 Camry that has this as a 'feature'. the check engine light comes on after a few thousand miles to indicate that the oil has to be changed. Even if you change the oil, the light comes on unless you reset it. If this is also applicable to your Corolla, check your manual for exact instructions. I always have to look up how to reset it. It is a combination of turning your key in the ignition and holding the odometer reset button. I have to do this every so often. Btw, if this is the cause of your check engine light, it is only meant as a reminder to you, there is nothing wrong with the car.

Yes it is all related. It sound's like your speed sensor (VVS) has gone bad. There are two of them, one is an in put Velocity sensor and the out is the out put Velocity sensor.
Your going to have to get the Van scanned to find out which on has gone bad. Most of the time it's going to be the out put sensor and it not that hard to replace. 
You can do it your self or a transmission shop, as for getting your Van scanned for the codes to let you know which sensor when bad. Auto Zone or Parts source will scan for free and can give you instructions on how to locate and replace the sensor.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Check your switches for the VSC, some get bumped on (due to their location) and some get stuck in the "on"position.

I have a 1998 Toyota Camry 4 cyl auto trans. I have located all 3 shifting solenoids under the trans pan but how do I figure out which solenoid is which? Also how do I test them?

p 0755 is shift solenoid B--wiring --solenoid ---TCM( (transmission control module)
p 0770 is shift solenoid E with the same causes
The problem indicates a TCM or wiring problem and not what you surmised it to be
The workshop manual has the specifications for the solenoids but the readings will be the same for both

P0770 CEL. What is the issue and how much will it cost for repair?

Toyota has a tech service bulletin on this issue But this is how the system works the car electrical system applies 12 volts to solenoid and the computer supplies the ground to operate the shift solenoid. once the command has been sent and the computer see no change in the input speed verses output speed it sets the po770 several things can cause this problem from bad torque converter to sticky valve body control valves and wiring issues. This can be diagnosed with a enhanced scanner without taking anything apart.

97 camry has no check engine light on but 3rd gear delays scaner said p0770 comes ons a selenoid what do you advaise to do

p0770 is shift solinoid E malfunction, If flushing the transmission fluid will not help. you have a problem with the shift solenoid itself or the wiring to it. Solenoid E (SL) is the torque converter lock-up solenoid. If the torque converter is a little slow locking up, it will set this code. May only be a one-time thing,allowing to get a small particle of something getting jammed in the solenoid. The code may disappear by itself.
any trans shop should be willing to solve this problem for you WITHOUT a rebuild. good-day!

I went to Auto Zone & have a computer code of p0770-Shift selinoid E malfunction...What is it? & how do I fix it? How much does it usually cost?

Shift solenoids control your transmission shifting. More than likely you will need to replace that solenoid, which is located in the transmission valve body. I would guess its about a $300 repair depending on the price of the solenoid.
