Having problems with your 1999 Toyota Camry ?

Sometimes when my car is going about 10 mph and I put on the brakes, it acts as though the front tires are going across very rough pavement. I thought it was an alignment problem until I pressed the accelerator, but then there's a slight **** as it shifts into a higher gear and it runs fine. I'm assuming it's an automatic transmission problem. Is is serious? It doesn't happen very often.

I have a 1997 Camry. There are several problems. Starting with the Gage Fuse. Apparently 7 different circuts run on in. Everytime I shift past Neutral, the fuse blows. Sometimes when I hit the gas, the fuse blows. All the gages go dead, the alternator stops charging the battery and the car dies. When I put a new fuse it, it blows as soon as I shift or hit the gas. And when its blow, the car won't shift into 2nd gear. The engine just reves higher and higher. Sometimes when I put a new one in, t

I have had my tiburon less than a year but about a month ago the transmission started to act weird. At first it began shifting between i think third and fourth gear which made the rpms go higher than they should. after about five minutes the transmission decided to stay in 3rd gear and wouldnt shift even when the car slowed down or stopped. Later i got back in my car the problem did not re-occur for about a week but acted slightly different. the transmission shifted between 3rd and 4th but began

I just bought a 1992 eagle talon and one of the belts is making a high pitched squeeking sometimes until the car warms up or if I cycle the gears a few times. THe belt looks fine, no frays or anything. (Automatic)Also until the car warms up it jumps when going from 1st to second. Also if I shift bewtween Drive and Reverse or neutral it jumps. Also when I shut it off the ignition the hole car kind of jerks. Theres no strange moises, the engine runs smooth and at speed it drives fine. THeres also


As for the high pitched squeeking. Just replace the serpentine belt. Just because you don't notice any crack or no frays, does not mean that the belt is good. My car was doing the same thing and when I replaced the belt everything was fine.\015 ... 1992 Eagle Talon

I recently started noticing that when I shift gears, the RPMs go really high (even when I am going very slowly). This problem is especially noticable when I go from a stand still to 15mph in first gear. The RPMs quickly "reve" over 30. As I accelerate, the RPMs reve even higher and then suddenly go back to normal as I gain speed. I notice this same problem as I shift from first gear to second and second gear to third. Any ideas why this is happening? Any ideas what might be the cause

Hi I have an 05 Cadillac SRX and the automaton transmission shudders. The sequence of events is going up hill, transmission has shifted into higher gear prior to hill.

I bought a 1995 Nissan 240sx s14 a month ago.(146K milage). It has a manual transmission. It didnt have any problems when i bought it. But right now when i try to up-shift from 1st gear to 2nd gear or 2nd gear to 3rd gear, it does not go in smoothly, instead it kind of grinds. I mean the gear still goes in and the car runs smoothly. But when i move the shift knob, i can feel that the gear grinds( for like half a second) before they got engaged together. It happens quite frequently. I would say 8
