Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6
Hi: My '93 Camry with 98,000 miles suddenly started shifting erratically during these hot summer days with temps in the 90's. It still runs but does not shift properly. In the evenings after sunset, it runs fine and even during the day if I turn off the car and wait 10 mins sometimes it will be OK. The second and possibly related problem is that in the heat of the day, the front brakes sometimes lock up erratically and are fine in the evening. Any help would be greatly appreciated - Many Thanks.

Often this kind of problem it is caused from faulty throttle position
sensor, you find out by connecting a code reader to your car computer.
throttle position sensor tells to your transmission control module how you are using the throttle, so that the car automatic transmission can shift to right gear, when this is faulty often you have transmission faults related to engine rpms and temperature, this can explain a trans problem happening only when engine is hot.
In some case it is not the sensor, but the computer module controlling transmission that is faulty.
To find out cause for the problem you need to connect a code reader to transmission module and to main computer module (ECU).
The code reader will return fault codes that allow to locate the problem. this kind of job can be done at any qualified garage.
