I thought you said you had no first gear?
Anyway hard to say from here what's going on, but a code reading should tell something, as should a pressure test. Might be valve body issues as well.

With these electronically controlled automatics, you have to eliminate electrical issues first before tearing into anything. I'm not sure what the effects of a bad ECM might be precisely--I just don't have that hands-on experience. Seems to me that actual severe slipping would have resulted in fluid that would be quite dirty and would have a pungent smell (coming from the damaged clutch material).
#145 of 181 '02 Camtry V-6 Trans. hesitation
May 15, 2009 (7:58 am)
My '02 Camry 82,000 miles has recently been experiencing a rapid cycle of hesitations when decelerating at highway speed. also with the cruise on and going down an overpass. I took it in to a garage I trust and I was told that the trans needed to be reprogramed. I was also told there should be no cost to me for this as there was a TSB from Toyota for this complaint. Naturally the service writer at the dealer told me he never heard of it, therefore nothing was done. Has anyone else exerienced this problem before and what was the solution? Thanks.
#146 of 181 95 Camry Transmission
May 24, 2009 (12:24 pm)
I just purchased a 95 Camry. The problems with the transmission are twofold:
1.) Above 45-50 mph the RPM's are too high for the engine speed based on my last Camry (1996) that this car replaces. At 60 mph I am around 3200 RPM. At 70 I'm over 4000 RPM. I am used to 2600-2800 for around 70 mph. It seems that the car will go through all gears normally but the overdrive gear never kicks in.
2.) If I'm at 60 mph (or ANY other speed just for example) and around 3200 RPM and I remove my foot from the accelerator, the engine tachs down immediately to around 1000-1100 (idle speed) and when I want to accelerate or just engage the engine to speed up, the engine revs ups freely until the RPM's meet the point where they engage. It works the same if I allow cruise control to take over.
This car was an engine rebuild by a mechanic so it could be as easy as he just didn't put in the correct ATF so the friction agents aren't working or the whole tranny could just be junk and I can replace it with the one from my old car (235k miles). I'm certainly no mechanic. I'm just going by the posts I have read on here.
Any thoughts or questions to help me hone in on this issue? Should I drain the tranny through the drainplug and just refill with what I KNOW is the correct ATF? I don't want to mess it up more without some guidance. So thank you for any offered.
#147 of 181 1994 camry V6 Transmission issue?
Jun 12, 2009 (5:12 am)
i have a 1994 camry V6, suddenly my car just started to give me problems with what i think is the transmission, or so i am told
when i first leave in the car it does fine, but after i come to a stop my car acts like it cannot shift (struggles from 1 to 2 then goes on to 3 & 4 with no problem)
and sometimes won't go at all. will go into drive and reverse
i recently had the radiator replaced and then afterwards i had a day where hit was trying over heat again , thought maybe the water level was too low cause after we topped it off and got it to my mechanic , he could not find anything wrong at all and never did it again until this started to happen with my shifting issue.
any suggestions, cannot get a computer on it to see if it throwing a code
could it be related to the radiator issue or a sensor
was told that i have 3 sensors that could be going bad as well but don't know which one to start with
any help or suggestions are welcome!

I had the same problem on my 2002 camry V6. Gear 1 and 2 hesitation. I also has this problem. When the transmission cold (e.g. at 15'C). It won't change gear at the first 1 km. And I had the dealer reflash the ECM computer doesn't solve the problem. My friend said it is comment on camry transmission.

Month ago. I had the toyota dealer flush my car trans system. Now the hesitation problem occur. Dealer said nothing related to the flush it is my transmission failing.
Jul 23, 2009 (4:59 am)
Same problem.......... rapid hesitation, bucking. seems like the engine is just cutting out like it had bad plugs. Only after driving a 100 miles or so and only when decelerating from highway speeds or going down the slightest hill. No check engine light so the dealer says they can't do anything unless they drive it with a scanner. It has real good power and gets 30 mpg highway. I'm lost. Local dealer suggested next time we take a trip schedule an appointment with a dealer on the way so they could test it.

I have a 2005 Camry LE 4 cyl with 41000 miles and is still under PowerTrain Warranty. I am getting a gurgling noise like metal flowing thru liquid during low speed acceleration 2 to 10 MPH. It does not occur everytime. My engine oil level is reading high 1/2 inch above full mark.
I am concerned about a transmission problem.
