Typical scenario - This started a few weeks ago - Start car, around 2 miles to freeway entrance, take freeway 6 miles to destination, at 60 MPH, engine speed is around 3100 RPM. 20 minutes later on the way home, at 60 MPH, engine speed is just over 2000 RPM. Transmission was drained, flushed, filter replaced and refilled a week ago. Of course the local transmission shop recommends replacing. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

If that transmission is anything like other Aisin transmissions of the era, that's normal behavior.

On gen3/4 Camrys the A140E or A540E/A541E don't shift into overdrive until warmed up.

Ya I’ve read the temp housing can get clogged and not flow coolant properly and it will cause the auto transmission to not go into overdrive.
