SOURCE: 2006 matrix shifting in transmission problem

This is a known condition. And, is under warranty.

Take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership. Ask them to replace your ECU per TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) TC015-07. The new ECU has redesigned logic that rectifys your condition.

If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps

SOURCE: Toyota Avalon 2006, I ahve a VSC indicator light

VSC is Vehicle Skid Control. The system is usually on, but when you turn it off (on my mother's 01 Avalon, it's on the knee bolster, below and to the right of the steering column), the indicator comes on in the cluster to let you know it's turned off - it's just a reminder to you that you don't have that safety net activated. The way the car is set up, even if you turn it off, when you shut down the engine and then restart it later, the system is rearmed automatically.

What I'm thinking is, since you've obviously had the engine on and off and the VSC OFF and TC OFF warnings are still illuminated, you probably have a problem with either an ABS sensor, a yaw sensor, or something related to those, as those systems rely on a bunch of sensors to work. If they have failed, it should illuminate the check-engine light. Stop at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the car's computer (it's free). They'll give you a list of the fault codes that come up. If you post them up here, I can define them for you and help you solve the problem - just post them as a reply or follow-up on this posting.

2002 saturn engine codes p0305,p0421 & p1818, what do i have to do to fix them?

Start with a tune up and change your fuel filter. Check your plug wires or better, replace them. The p0421 code has to do with the cat. Also, install spark plug anti foulers, you can get them at your local auto parts store. Follow the spark plug link. As for p1818, have this code reset at a reliable shop preferably a transmission shop. Ask around and some of your friends for their recommendations as to where you can take your car to to have the trans control module reset without the shop trying to tell you you have to fix something, ie shell out the big bucks. tell them aLl you want is to have the code and trans reset, NOTHING MORE. Sometimes this code comes up false. so have it reset after you take care of the tune up etc. this code should be reset using a transmission code reader.

replace the sensor .

Loss of power, transmission issues

code p0700 refers to transmission control system/MIL --malfunction===causes --wiring ---TCM (1)
code po740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid--circuit malfunction===causes--wiring--TCC solenoid--ECM/TCM (transmission control module) (again)
code p0871 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor C -range/ performance problem==causes---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM /TCM (yet again)
code p0734 refers to gear 3 ratio (po374 is gear ratio 4) incorrect ratio===causes --wiring--TR sensor/switch--shift solenoids--transmission mechanical fault (causes are the same for po733&734)
code po846 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor B-range/ performance problem===causes ---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM/TCM (again). Give the clutch a miss as you still have 1st gear and if the clutch is not working you will not be going any where. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failures (pump ). The rest are sensors are wiring connections , sensor and TCM. My bet is the TCM unit. Have it checked out. What ever you do treat any suggestion of a new transmission with a grain of salt until you are shown proof positive that you need one.

Transmission Codes

This is usually a PCM / TCM problem, replacement, wiring repairs, or reprograming is usually the repair. Dealership is your best option for a qualified Diagnosis /repair.

I can't locate where the spark plugs are for a 2006 saturn vue,4cy.Could you tell me where they are located?

They are located in the head.To gain access you need to remove the cover on top of the engine and unplug the ignition module once these are removed the plugs are in the cylinder head and accessible with a 5/8 spark plug socket and extension. Some ecotechs have an additional plastic cover that need removed before you can access the coil cover and ignition module.

Eng light comes on and code 1887

The code P1887 is an indication of a malfunction with the TCC release switch.
The Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) release switch is part of the Automatic Transmission Fluid Pressure Manual Valve Position Switch (TFP Val. Position Sw.). The TFP Val. Position Sw. is mounted to the transmission valve body. The switch is normally-closed. The switch signals the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) that the TCC is released. This is accomplished by Torque Converter release fluid pressure acting on the switch contact, thus opening the switch. When the voltage is high on the circuit, the Powertrain Control Module recognizes that the TCC is no longer engaged.
When the PCM determines that the TCC release switch is open (indicating that the TCC is not applied) and the TCC slip speed indicates that the TCC is applied, then DTC P1887 sets.
