1993 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
I wanted to know about a transmission that I purchased at a junk yard, now I know that I am taking a chance when u buy a used part from a junk yard but the savings is so good. I put a used tranny in my 1993 camry and then when all finished the car will shift perfect to all gears except the reverse. The tranny I put in came out of a 1996 model not a 1993 will this make a difference to the car. I thought that 1992 through 1996 parts would interchange in the toyota camry as long as it was a automatic. Is this true? Or did I put a wrong year tranny in. On the 1993 tranny there was a wire that hooked up at the side opposite where the gear shifter is and on the 1996 tranny there was no hook up for this wire so it was left unconnected to anything. And also the piece where the gear shifter on the tranny is there is a wire that connects to it. I had to change out that piece because the hook up connector from the car was smaller than the connector on the gear shifter piece on the tranny. Does this piece make a difference to the function of the tranny? And can I switch out the connector on the tranny that fits over the gear shifter to solve my problem? Or is the tranny bad or non interchangable? Like I said the car shifts perfect when driving but no revers. When I put the car in reverse and push in on the gas pedal the engine will not rotate very fast it will turn slower that it is suppose to. The car was at one time go foward in reverse. Can you tell me my problem with this car and tranny. Oh yea the over drive light will flash on and off when I push the over drive button on, but does not when I push it off.
have the same problem?
