Re: transmission oil change 2004 camry 2.4le
The job is very messy but very easy, if you don't mind spending the money use a synthetic transmission fluid, Redline corporation makes the best on the market, but pricey, it will extend trans life and give better performance overall.

Hello Kord ! It is a possibility the automatic transmission fluid to be the culprit of this situation you face. When it gets warm is starting the skipping and bucking. Is loosing the viscosity and pressure. Renew oil and filter. But my advise before you proceed on that is good to give it a good oil flush and then go to change. In the new oil if you like is good to put also the Wynn's Automatic Transmission Treatment. That will help the transmission work to become smoother.
according to my alldata book this vehicle doesnt need the tranny oil changed ,if it fails then its a exchange gearbox ,if you have a dipstick for the tranny then just undo the tranny sump bolts and drain it this way but my honest advice is if it works well leave well alone as the oil shouldnt get dirty or deteroriate as its only a hydraulic pumping oil but if its dirty then the bands and the clutch are worn so it will require a overhaul anyway as it will give up the ghost before long
OD means Over Drive. It's an automatic transmission right? There is a button someplace to reengage OD. Now as of the service vehicle note, could simplely be time to change oil or could be something wrong with tranni. I can't tell you without looking at the truck.
Assuming that it is tranny fluid, and not engine oil, there is only one seal, and your torque converter goes into it. Anyway, what you're in for is pulling the tranny, no matter what. Then it's pretty simple to pull the torque converter out, and change the seal. You want to make sure it's done right, though. That's an expensive transmission.
Everybody knows that you change the oil filter for your engine and your engine oil. The one fact that most people DO NOT KNOW, is that this is true for automatci transmissions too. Yes, it is a little know fact by the masses that you should have your tranny fluid changed and tranny filter & magnets changed (if equipped).
For example, a few days ago I had a worried customer call me and tell me she could not afford a $1500 transmission. I assured her that the starting point wa to do a transmission service for her car. Her car did not have a tranny pan and tranny filter, so all we did was drain her ATF (automatci transmission fluid) and I noticed it was dark and almost even black. New ATF should be red like Kool-Aid. This was a sign this tranny oil was no good. I refilled her car and took it for a test drive. I was happy to find that the shifting had improved immediately. She was so happy when she got her car back.
Remember, you change your oil right? WELL, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID A TRANSMISSION SERVICE? Most people say "never" or " I don't think it has ever been done before"
Some people do this every 12,000 to 25,000 miles or once ever 2 years.
Do this and this will be your starting point. If this does not work (and this does work the majority of the time); then you may need to send the car to a tranny specialist and have the tranny rebuilt or replaced.
yes it does need too be change,if auto matic ,especially, change the fluid and the filter, too ensure proper shifting and so it doesnt burn up your transmission,check your manual for exact mileage on service intervals
