Default 99 Camry auto trans probs

Hi All,

I've got a 99 V6 Camry, up until about 3 weeks ago the automatic
transmission was perfect.. At that time I had a problem with the starter
motor so ended up replacing it, the very next day the transmission started
playing up.. Nothing major but now when changing gears it seems to thud into
gear, maybe thud isn't the right word, but its really noticeable when
changing gears.. especially the lower gears.

The strange thing is that the longer you run the car the less noticeable the
gear changes are.. Say for instance I've driven around for an hour, the gear
changes are almost perfect again.. a lot better then if it had only been
driven for 10 minutes..

The transmission fluid has been replaced.. Anyone think of anything obvious
that might be wrong or point me in the direction of what I shoubd be looking
at.

Cheers

Paul

Did you change the filter, Is level correct, Are you sure the correct
fluid was used. If it was an oil change place or just any mechanic you
cant be sure corrtect oil was used.

First guess would be to check for any wires to sensors that were
disturbed during starter replacement.
Starter is directly above the transaxle, plus the air box and probably
cruise control need to be removed for access.
Shifting is electronically controlled - could be a temperature sensor
wire is no longer making a good connection. (might help explain why it
shifts well again when warm)
If you paid for the work, you probably need to ask them to double check
each and every connection that may have been disturbed.
Change in behaviour day following is a big hint that something
associated with the starter replacement is responsible.
