1991 Toyota Corolla DX Wagon 294K
While driving I have to release the gas pedal completely and wait a second for the automatic transmission to shift up as normal. I do this for each gear. I had this problem briefly a long time ago(like 20,000 miles ago) and it went away and now it's back for good. Reverse works fine. Auto downshift works fine. Auto lock up solenoid engages and disengages fine. It happened on the same day I changed my spark plug wires and rotor. I put the old parts back on but the problem persisted. Does it matter that the car is blue?
I read in the forum it could be a faulty shift solenoid in the transmission. I do understand it is kind of time to rebuild the transmission anyway. But what is causing my shifting problem? One guy said kickdown cable, one guy said internal problems rebuild the whole thing. Thanks.
