What is wrong when sometimes traveling over 20 mph your tempo shifts into neutral and transmission slips?

You probably have a slipping clutch band in your transmission. Take it to a transmission shop.

You need to have the transmission computer checked for codes to know possible causes.

It's not shifting into neutral, the 3rd gear "drive" band is slipping. Time for rebuild.

A Camry transmission will experience late shifts if the fluid is low or the bands are worn. This is an early sign of failure.

Any unnecessary shifts cause additional wear on the shift mechanism, but that's a minor consideration. At a long signal light or train crossing, it's better for the transmission to shift into neutral than to keep it in drive with foot on the brake, or if a manual, better in neutral than holding in the clutch all that time.

there is no fuse that makes the transmission shift the transmission shifts on cylinoids and rpms

If you shift manually, you have a manual transmission. If your car shifts for you, you have an automatic.

My 2018 is hydrostatic and it has a small pin in the back that shifts it into neutral and will disengage the transmission to make it free wheel. Hope this helps

If you are asking the function of a modulater valve,it is to smooth out the shifts in an automatic transmission.

My f150 shifts from 2wheel to 4wheel on the fly, but to use 4low you need to be stopped with your transmission in neutral to engage the low range in my transfer case.

The transmission "valve body" can often have problems that result in leaks and sticking. Once the seals of a valve body start to fail, the transmission clutches start to slip and eventually fail altogether. In any case, once the transmission fails in the way you describe, you're pretty much stuck with the only options being to rebuild the transmission, replace the transmission or get rid of the vehicle.

You could try changing the transmission filter and the fluid.

If the pcm controls the transmission the shifts could be inaccurate.

Park for automatic transmissions, and Neutral for stick shifts.

User Avatar

Yes. Stick shifts are the most common type of transmission used in Europe, India and Latin America.

A hard shift isn't always hard on a transmission. When a transmission shifts soft, it has to slip clutches and bands which causes the friction material to wear out faster. But if this concerns you, have the transmission vacuum modulator valve and vacuum line inspected as this controls the shift firmness.
