I'm looking at purchasing a 1989 camry, it has 164,000 miles and has been owned by a mechanic the last ten years. Everything seems great about the car except that it doesn't shift into second gear when going up hill. It will shift up normally on the flat or downhill but skips second and goes to drive when accelerating uphill. The owner says that his wife just manuallly puts it into second and its fine but even without a tach I could tell this does not work either mostly because of the severe lack of power. I don't want to purchase if this could be something major. It is also the 2.0L four cylinder, which means hills can become very hard to overcome with no second gear.

If its the " original transmission" . 164k miles.
Think that you have not many miles ahead before a tranny repair.

Why he s selling it?
