That is odd, I have not experienced it but it might be the transmission "flare" issue that seems to be a known problem on some cars. However itwould be worth replacing the trans oil and filter and making sure the fluid level is not low. The problem you are seeing can be caused by a low fluid level

Normal for older 6-speed's to have a cold shift flare... usually only occurs 'once'. It took a couple years for Toyota to figure it out.

Pull pan, clean magnets, install ZIPKIT, change filter, inspect old fluid/filter for metal debris, refill with fresh WS equivalent ATF, and keep driving. If any metal debris(especially non magnetic aluminum), you'll eventually need a new transmission.

While different transmission then what I have, I have a similar issue with my 2004 V6. Think reading up on it was called a 'transmission flare' and it does the same exact thing - although for me is random throughout driving doesn't matter if hot or cold (Fluid drain refills done multiple occasions, no change).

As mention above, might want to drain and refill the fluid. There is a special method for the V6 2GR method (along with the 2AR 2010+ I4) as there is no dip stick and drain bolt anymore on these transmissions

The 4 and 5 speed autos used on earlier 4cyl and v6 models can also be zipkitted
http://www.sonnax.com/parts/3048-zip-kit
http://www.sonnax.com/parts/3047-zip-kit

Shift kit for the OP is also available:
http://www.transgo.com/products.php...g&category_id=186&parent_id=45&product_id=274

And for older 4 or 5 speeds:
http://www.transgo.com/products.php...g&category_id=171&parent_id=45&product_id=263
http://www.transgo.com/products.php...g&category_id=151&parent_id=45&product_id=262

Either the ZipKit or Transgo will assist in reducing or preventing the normal known issues with Toyota's 4, 5, and 6 speed automatics.

I have a 03 camry 3.0 4 sp auto. Was told I need a new trans. Pretty pricey. Which of these kits would be appropriate? And can I do this in my back yard?

If you have the 2003 V6, you might have the U140E which wasn't the best from what i've heard

Did you lose your fwd or reverse, or overdrive gears? Might want to create a thread about it.

I do have an older thread on it. Thought I would ask about the kit here tho. I'll continue on that one, but, all gears are there, mainly hard shifting or "crazy" shifting. Hope to continue there.

I bought my 07 v6 camry at 5000 miles. When cold there has always been a slip between 2nd and 3rd. I have always either let the car warm up a little before driving or ease up on the accelerator between the shift. My car now has 250k miles and still does the same thing. I shoulda had it fixed while under warranty but hate going to the dealer.
