    I am sooooo upset by this whole thing. I had a 2005 toyota that had numerous things wrong that had to be traded for the car I have now. It sat at the dealer for 3 weeks. It was the same type of thing. They knew about the problem blah blah blah.

    I have a 2005 Corolla. It's under the 96 months but I have 85000+. Can I just replace myself, or should i bring it to the dealer? I'm soon due for a ATF drain and fill in a couple months.

    i have '06 corolla with the same thing--check engine light on, shifts hard/check engine light off, does ok. autozone put thingy on it and long story short, shift solenoid needs to be replaced. car has 127,000 mi. toyota wants $900 to fix it, when the part comes in (it's on backorder--apparently there's been an outbreak of solenoid flu and their having trouble keeping them in stock) here's a thought--toyota, step up. you had to develop a whole new part (ECM?) to bandage an existing one? i bought this car brand new and it wasn't cheap, but toyota's always had a very good reputation. keep it that way.

You probably have a DTC code of P-2716.

Toyota knows about this issue, and a new engine Control Module (ECM) has been developed to rectify this condition. If your car is under 96 months old, and has less than 80,000 miles, the ECM will be replaced FREE by your Toyota dealer. The replacement ECM corrects the shifting issue.
Mention Tech Service Bulletin "TC015-07" when you take it in for service. If you are beyond the time and mileage as listed above, I can give you the part number for the ECU, if you want to purchase one.

My 2006 corolla has started to exhibit a strange revving of the rpm's and slight acceleration when i'm driving. Could this be the ecm recall or something else with the transmission

If you are using your defroster that I am sure in this weather, the computer increase the RPM to compensate for the load created by the compressor.

The symptoms for those people who haven't do the recall is hard shifting and no start condition. check engine light with codes p2716,p600, p607

2005-07Toyota Corolla Hard to Start/Harsh Shift/Check Engine Light On

There is a known issue with the 2005-2007 Corolla automatic transmission shift logic. The shift points may seem harsh, and the Check Engine light may be illuminated.

There is a technical service bulletin published that will address and rectify this condition.

The diagnostic code P2716 will be stored in the computer memory. The procedure involves replacing the Engine Control Module (the computer) with an updated unit.

The repair is covered, under the factory warranty, for 96 months, or 80,000 miles, which ever comes first.

I hope that this helps Corolla owners out.

This is very common on Matrix/Corollas and is repairable by way of replacement PCM to correct invalid parameters. the labor is low but the part is very expensive.

Expect approximately $89 or less in labor, and $648 for the new PCM

Reference bulletin #TC015-07

Check engine light on, auto transmission shifts gears abruptly

It should still be under warrenty Take it to the shop for repairs It is a transmisson problem but many things can cause the transmisson not to shift correctly. Call your service department and ask if you should drive it in or have it towed and do not drive till you have it figured out. If you have a warrenty and continue to drive it will void your warrenty.

2006 Corolla: Check engine light is on - gears shift is not smooth

You have an issue that Toyota knows about; there is a programming problem with the ECM in the vehicle, and Toyota has released a Tech Service Bulletin (TC015-07) to cure your problem.
You probably have a DTC code of P-2716...The ECM needs replaced with an updated unit.
PLUS: this repair should be covered for 96 months of use, or up to 80,000 miles. The replacement ECU will be installed totally for free. Call your local Toyota dealer & get an appointment.
