Default '92 autotrans


Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. 2.2L aut
235K. Been fine but after a few miles of city driving and then 1
miles hi-way, I exited and stopped. Apparently the tranny didn'
downshift. Engine lugged down and car barely moved until reachin
aound 30mph. Same thing next 2 stops. After sitting overnite, car ra
fine altho I didn't drive it far. Used to work on cars before computer
and still do easy stuff but understand these have 2 solenoids, 2 spee
sensors, and, of course, the ECM. Anyone had this problem and have a
idea where to start? Thanks for any suggestions. (Fluid change
about every 50K but screen not cleaned that I know of. Engine run
fine.

You never maintained the trans as the manual said and you ask here
first! Go change the filter and oil.

Thanks- I intend to but if I'm reading correctly the solenoids ar
accessible thru the pan cover and I thought if they were the mos
likely problem I might replace them while it was off and drained.
Sorry I didn't ask for advice before I had a problem. BTW, instead o
going by schedule B of the owner's manual (check every 24 months) w
went by our service rep who said to change fluid about every 50K an
there was no servicable filter. Saw in the Haynes that it should hav
been every 30K and the screen can be cleaned. (I did read the Hayne
1st by the way but since it's shifting again I'm not sure what the mos
likely problem is/was and had hopes someone might have actuall
experienced the problem and knew the answer.) But I'll change th
fluid, clean the screen and see what happens. Again, appreciate you
input

The screen is a filter and cannot be cleaned as the dirt goes inside
the filter, many issues are dirt in the oil or a clogged filtet

Don't drive the car much but finally managed to read the codes and i
indicates defective #1 solenoid. Pulled pan and found it. I'll b
testing it tomorrow. Having two Camrys and a Toyota truck ('91) it'
been a long time since I've actually had to work on a car.:
