Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Transmission slip mainly at highway speeds

The engine check light is not on, no engine codes. I just changed out the fluid and transmission filter which resulted in it not slipping as often but it still slips. drives fine 0-highway speeds and the transmission randomly slips out of gear. If I rev it a couple times and keep it the proper rpm range it usually kicks back in gear.

    I forgot to mention that when it slips out of gear, there is a rattling noise until it kicks back into gear

This does not sound good. It is possibly your O/D direct clutch or O/D brake slipping in the transmission. Seek a couple of specialist opinions.

SOURCE: transmission slips

reading what your saying, the problem started when you topped up with fluid; from experience what you have done is over filled the system which can build up high pressure and burst the oil seals and contamanate the drive plate.if your happy with what youve removed it might come back ok.but i suspect burst oil seal failure causing contamanation. thanks adrian

SOURCE: I have a 4 cyl 91 Camry ...the transmission seems

Hi and Welome to fixya.com.

Changing the Gearbox oil is fine but this is nothing to do with your clutch slipping, sounds has if you need to replace the whole clutch unit.
Best regards.

Ford trauras trouble code 732 - was told transmission code 732 was being produced, what does a code 732 say?


P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes
Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Hope helps.

2000 Neon (5-Speed) Transmission slips when accelerating


Your cheapest venue to take is to change the fluid and filter in the tranny. Look at the small magnet in the pan and see if there are large amounts of metal fillings(small amounts are normal) try it after reassembly. Good luck, Dana

400 E transmission tranny is slipping?


Check the fluid level. Make sure the engine is warm and engine is idling. If the fluid level is fine then try changing the fluid and the transmission filter. *Note: if you take it in don't let them give you any Jazz about metal shavings in the fluid. It's a scam. Metal shavings in the bottom of the pan is normal tranny wear. Tell them to just changed the filter and fluid and be on your way. Hopefully that should correct the problem.

Transmission Component Slipping (TCC Stuck off)


code p 1870 refers to transmission component slipping
That can be from dirty oil or a clutch pack or band slipping or low oil pump pressure in the transmission
you say that it occurs on highway driving after 2 hours and that slipping will add friction heat to the transmission oil bringing on the oil temp light
take it to an accredited transmission professional service center that works on your make of vehicle , have the oil changed which require the pan removal
at the same time that will allow the adjustments to be done
when reassembled and refilled , have a pump pressure test done
