Default Camry transmission trouble?

We have a 2000 Camry 4-door sedan (4 cyl.) that has been running
fine until just recently, when it has shown a symptom that I'm
hoping doesn't mean transmission trouble.

Once in a while when the car is at a stop (in Drive) and you're
ready to go and you step on the gas pedal, the motor revs up
but the car does not accelerate. After a second or so it begins
to move and all is fine.

Today my daughter said she was in the car at a stoplight, and
when she pressed the gas not only did it not accelerate, but
she thought it felt like it was moving backward--not just drifting
backward, but moving as if in reverse gear.

Any idea what's going on here?

Have you checked the auto trans fluid? I assume it is an automatic.

On the Camry do you check the transmission fluid via
the differential fluid stick? I saw no stick marked
transmission fluid.

I did check the differential, and it seemed ok for a
"cold" level reading.

The transmission fluid dipstick is on top of the engine compartment and
usually has an orange colored handle. Let the vehicle run for a while
and check the dipstick while fluid is hot. The differential is a
separate compartment you can only access by getting underneath the
vehicle and opening up a bolt and sticking your finger inside the
differential housing.

I never saw a differential stick, I suggest you get the fluid and filter
changed, they must drop the pan for this,

Yes, sounds like low fluid level. Do change the strainer and drop the
pan for cleaning. Make sure you change the strainer.
