you say that you suddenly lost power to wheels in both drive and reverse do you mean the car will not move in fwd and rev ? if the answer is yes check the atf level is it real high on the dipstick?

That question, initially, confused me.
But no, now that there is no mechanical connection between the shifter and the transaxle the motor mounts should not have this effect.
#135 of 181 '05 - Transmission Fluid Change
Apr 19, 2008 (6:27 am)
I just did a drain and refill over the weekend 43k. I used CASTROL IMPORT MULTIVEHICLE MTF instead of Toyota T-IV. It needed 3.5 qts. I got 4 3.19 each at Pep Boys. This MTF outperforms the original fluid. I noticed that it shifts smoothly and does not abruptly downshift when you step on your gas and driving uphill . This works on my Camry and might solve the tranny issue with 5th gens. I wish I had changed the fluid earlier. I plan to change again at 60K.

Ooops! I stand corrected.
This is Automatic Trans Fluid not MTF that I mentioned earlier.

#139 of 181 Camry 4 cyl auto trans issues?
Apr 12, 2009 (12:35 pm)
2001 Camry 4 cyl auto, trans replaced by Toyota at 56k miles (trans totally gone). Now, 30k miles more, no first gear. Fluid smells great (as far as fluid smells go) and level is OK. Does Toyota have a problem? Any TSBs available? Anyone think Toyota will help?

No mention of transmission failure issues in the TSB list.
Could be an electrical issue (ECM, shift solenoid, etc.).
You need to have the transmission scanned for trouble codes to learn more.

A) Sorry for duplicate posting. First time I have ever posted anything anywhere. B) are you saying an electrical issue could be causing 1st gear to shudder and slip when trying to connect up? That is what is happening. Thanks
