94 Camry V6 Auto Shift Problem

Just had trans rebuilt by national trans company. Have most of the same problems after rebuild as before:

-Start on cool/cold day, no upshift into second until a screaming 4,000 rpm or higher. A manual shift into second gear is possible. When temp gauge needle is mid to top of letter C trans shifts into second gear at 3,300 rpm

-Hard shift from first to second gear

Will the eng temp sensor and or the throttle position sensor be at work here?

Sounds like they took your money without really solving your problem.

If the transmission is working like it should, I would check the throttle linkage. It modifies ATF main line pressure according to throttle position. But it would be a surprise if the "national" transmission company didn't do this. 3300-4000 before going into 2nd is too high.

Another thing is to check the activation of the correct solenoids at the proper times. But a good shop should have done this too on their dyno.

It's another reason I would go to an ATRA (Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Assoc) shop, and not a fast lube place or a "national" transmission shop for example.

The throttle linkage on the throttle body end has a staked stopper on the cable. The stopper should be 0-1mm out of the rubber boot.

Check repair manual, Haynes or Autozone's free repair guide. There were discussions on TN too. Here is an example:

Engine Swap Now Tranny Doesn't Shift

John I visited the link you provided. I also found this < http://www.**********s.com/camry/ax2.pdf > On page AX2-69 are instructions to adj cable. Reading both is confusing. I will do as explained on AX2-69 but first stressing the cable by fully depressing the accelerator pedal, then checking the distance between the outer cable end and stopper on the cable. I will do that in the morning. Thanks again. The missing letters are turbo and ninja
