    When ever my car shifts gears, it makes a screeching sound.
    When i start driving and getting up to speed on the road, i hear a screeching sound every time it shifts and I'm getting concerned because its happening more often now. No lights are on for check engine or anything.

      Odd sounds coming from your car can be an early sign that something is wrong with you vehicle. Get your vehicle checked by a professional immediately. At the same time, you should get your oil and engine checked.

      it could be but it could also be bad bearings in the water pump or timing belt tensioner. i replace them while doing the timing belt it could be something rubbing on your new timing belt.

      The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is mounted on the exterior housing of the transmission - on the output shaft.
      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the speed sensor from around $58.00 for your vehicle.

      The (VSS) vehicle speed sensor is located on the top of the transaxle (exterior) housing and can be identified by the blue wire and the yellow wire connected to it. There is no magnetic pick-up, but a speed sensor - one bolt to remove the sensor.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the speed sensor from around $58.00 for your vehicle.

      These same websites also show photos of the sensor - and its mounting bracket on the exterior of the transmission.

    Loud clunking noise when shifting to reverse
    I recently had the transmission flushed at a certified Toyota dealer. Shortly after the check engine light came on. The dealer did a diagnostic and said he had to re- set the pressure sensor. The car ran fine after that but soon the car would make a really loud ...

      check the engines rpm at that time, it may be a little high, check if there is any computer up grade flashes for shift ability, check for any wear in the drive line mounts etc.

      If the fluid level is OK; still slips / does not engage - then no easy fix. Most likely the transmission bands / friction surfaces are worn and need replacement. This means either a transmission overhaul / rebuild or replacement.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the transmission rebuild kit from around $68.00 for your vehicle.

    I had sloppy and hard to shift from park to L. Fluid OK .
    So I parked car tried shifting back and forth, Then lever went free wheeling. Now It's stuck in park and no shifting. it has 116,000 miles on it and runs well but shifting has been getting more difficult. What to do next.

      Stoplight switch directs current to the stop lights, cruise control, and shift interlock to turn them on or off
      When not replaced, stop lights will run continually or not function, potentially causing premature bulb failure, safety issues and/or the transmission will not shift out of park.

      Check the brake lights and see if they're on when you applied the brakes. No,

      Check the brake light switch, replace it as necessary

    I had sloppy and hard to shift gear selection from park to L fluid good.
    I checked fluid level its clean and up to level. Then I tested shifting, then the lever went free wheeling with no connection to shift. It's now stuck in park position.
