Default 95 Camry 4 cyl AutoTrans won't shift into over drive when cold

The car runs perfectly but I notice in the fall and winter for the
first mile or so before the temperature guage comes off the peg, the
tranny won't shift into over drive. Once it warms up a bit and the
temp guage comes off the peg, everything is fine. In the summer, it
shifts into over drive from the get go even before the temp guage
comes off the peg.

I'm guessing this may be a normal part of the way the electronics is
controlling it. Is this a normal feature of the design of the
electronic controls or does it have to do with the tranny oil warming
up?

thanks
Mark

This is fine. In fact, I think it's in the manual...

Hey, thanks for answering this folks. I've been wondering about this very
thing on my own '95. And now it all makes sense.
As a footnote, the dealer suggested a "soft rebuild" as a $olution.
They also suggested a new set of rear struts when just replacing the
stabilizer bar bushings solved that (rattle and roughness) problem ..thanks
again to this Newsgroup!
