Automatic Transmission problem #4
The car was a 1997 Toyota Camry. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 4T1BF22K3V_. As my car crested a small hill on 7-15-99, the engine revved to about 4000 rpm and there was no power. It was like the car had shifted into neutral. The "check engine" light came on. I tried shifting to 2nd gear and then back to drive which then worked. This happened again about two blocks later. I took the car to wilkins Toyota the next day. They replaced a speed sensor. The car seemed ok but the same thing happened a few days later. I returned to wilkins Toyota 7-21. They replaced another speed sensor, saying Toyota had a defective lot. The same thing happened again a few weeks later. The "check engine" light came on but later went back off. Wilkins said the fault code would be stored anyway and bring it back. I did. They said there was no fault code and declined to do anything. At this time I contacted Toyota customer service on the internet but never received a reply. The car was then ok for a while (I was out of town for about three weeks) until the same thing happened on 10-27. I took the car to wilkins Toyota. They replaced yet another speed sensor which failed tonight after only 15 miles. This is dangerous. Two of the failures were on the freeway, including tonight's. I was unable to get the car into drive and had to use 2nd gear at igh rpms to keep up with traffic until I could exit. This is four bad sensors in 3 months and within 2500 miles. I believe something in the car is causing the failures because Toyota couldn't have so many bad ones or no one's car would run. Can you help?. It was Jul. 16, 1999 when this automatic transmission issue occurred.
