Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages on Toyota Camry

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

transmission changes to second gear and gets tight, as in loosing power then shifts to third and all is well. the shifting is getting a bit out of time. I have replaced the timing belt and all gaskets. it was after all that work that the transmission started acting up.

same problem, often no downshift when coming to a stop
stalls when put in drive. sticks in second if you push it
Same here, however there are other issues the car has i.e needs tune up, and a lot of other things as well so when combined it just needs some t.l.c and money is tight oh well

Shifting problems in all gears. I got four quotes all state that I need to overhaul the whole transmission it was not solenoid or throttle sensor

O/D light flashing. When the vehicle is cold it won't accelerate, I have to put in 2 and hope for the best.
