Question about Toyota RAV4
This is the only area of slip.Is my trans bad or could it possibly be the wrong fluid. I just purchased this car and have no idea if it is the correct fluid.
The transmission is 12 years old, so unless it was replaced
once, I would say with ANY slipping, you bought someone else's
That is a normal occurrance
Why,well-- no one changes trans fluid every 3 years,so they fail
Just like you have power steering problems from not doing that
fluid every 3 years & brake problems from not changing that fluid every 2 years
Lack of knowledge & lack of preventative maintenance, that's
why things fail to last as long as they should
There is no solution or fix involving the changing of fluid on an
The fluids are changed only because they loose their ability to
remove heat,thus the trans fails. There are some other known
design features or flaws in all transmissions & some technical
issues, but the old fluid takes them out
Wrong fluid is common,one size fits all is what you get 50% of
the time I would say & thus shortened life as a result.
So you up against a rebuild or installing a reman to the tune
of approx $3,000 or more
BEFORE you pull any trans, you have a shop road test the car
with a scan tool & do some diagnostic work
Maybe a failed shift solenoid will be the fix, but if you have been
driving it with any slipping the internal clutch damage is done,
maybe before you got it

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

SOURCE: transmission flares
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.
