Default '00 transmission question

00 Camry, 4 cyl.

The transmission feels odd when the A/C is running. No slipping at speed,
just the shifts sometimes feel funky and the car seems to lunge through
them. It has slipped 2 times over 2 months going from a deas stop, but in
both cases it was a quick hit of the gas after shifting into drive.

I'm obviously going in to a toyota dealer for a looksie. I was just
wondering what to expect, so I can arm myself with knowledge.

any takers?

(if this seems familiar, yes this is a followup with more info to a previous
post a month or so ago, I'm heading in for a diagnostic and
flush/fill/screen cleaning)

How do you know its slipping?
A slipping trans makes a loud, short, groaning sound as the brake-band slips
aginst its drum while engine torque is high, for example on take-off.

Ah well, what happens is I shift from park to drive, hit the gas, and the
engine revs up a bit before drive engages and it jerks. It's only done it 3
times in 3 months, and if I shift into drive and allow a little extra pause
before proceeding, it never does it.

OK.,..thats different and as far as my knowledge allows, can mean a sluggish
valve or a little lag-time in the oil-pump to provide enough pressure to
execute the change. The fact the AC was on may mean the engine speed had
lowered (under the extra load of driving the AC compressor) instead of self
adjusting which it should do. This would lower the trans oil-pump
performance. Finally,..has the trans been serviced? Brake-band and clutch
material can start to clog the filter in the trans oil-pan.

I had a flush at 30,60,90 and it is currently at 96.

The dealer drove it and said it seems to shift fine for them, nothing
unusual. I'm not sure if I was unlucjy and they didnt catch it, or if I am
just paranoid. They checked the fluid via the dipstick and said it seems
fine, no change needed immediately. But without dropping the pan I'm not
sure they can really tell anything. So I guess other than the slip, which
hasn't happened recently since I am nice to it, I'm not sure what to think.
