Default 93 camry shift soleinoids code 61 and 62

Hi have a camry 2.2 auto getting codes off auto box sometimes blinks 61 and 62 sometimes doesnt blink for days .Gearbox sometimes struggles at 1700 rpm before drive engages sometimes takes quicker .Once driving it gets up to speed quickly ..Been to big gearbox places they tell me gearbox ruined 1200 dollars repair smaller guys tell me 400 for secondhand import gearbox incl instalatin 3 months guarantee.Nobody can give me concrete answers all wishy washy on repairs we will only know how much cost on repairs only when opened.How big is a shift soleinid problem can i drive car like that long term or not .Also a secondhand auto box import is it a 50 50 if i get a long term use or if in a year i end up with auto box problems again .Any help suggestions appreciated thanks wayne

Does the trans slip, over speed between shifts, have hard shift, take a while to shift into gear when moving gear selector?

61 is the 2nd speed sensor on trans.

62 is shift solenoid 1 problems.

These parts can be replaced with trans in car.

If possible, find a smaller shop that does trans work. The larger ones may only want to replace the trans.

As to trans life if not fixed. If the trans has the above symptoms, more damage will occur over time.

3 sometimes 4 seconds when in drive at about 1700 rpm will go to agent to get solenoid shift sensor number when driving od flashed again code 62 then go to autobreakers yard and test secondhand one off my car battery with positive and negative if firing the small piston .Then will get small mechanic to jack car up and drop gearbox sump will have gasket on standby as a metal filter if i see a lot of metal on magnet tell him swop solenid refill fluid and then decide do i get complete running car in manual or to get secondhand auto box or remanufactured auto box

2 seconds but seemed to be laboring as though taking off in high gear when taking off manually using l2 drive going through gears it takes straightaway only gearbox code is code 62 now and again when on a long straight with od button pushed in ..only once in last week did code 61 flash followed by code 62 thesedays only code 62 .Took it to gearbox mechanic he reckons gearbox history but i smell a rat im half convniced that if shift solenid one gets replaced the gearbox will run a couple more years

Two seconds is OK.

It could be the trans is not in low when its working in automatic mode. Then its forced to shift to low by moving the gear selector to low.

Do some research on the trans model. Find out where the shift solenoids are on the trans body. All solenoids and trans shift body can be replaced with the trans in car by dropping the oil pan.
