2009 Camry Downshifting Problem

I have a similar problem with my 2009 Camry LE 4cyl automatice transmission downshifting hard when coming down a hill. I have read the bulletin number form Toyota T-SB-0033-08. But how can I tell if my care is in the build sequence applicable to this specific bulletin. The VIN is 4T1BE46K69U383938. Does anyone know?

My 2001 cadillac catera has unwanted downshifting when not on level roads


Yep that\'s what auto trans do. it tries to do engine braking, just don\'t accelerate at all. When you go down hill in a manual gearbox, you would also have to downshift to let the engine do the braking.

On My 2002 Hyundai Elantra after 5-10 min of driving fast and hard accelaration will downshift the transmission.What can cause that,?Check engine light is not on...


Most modern automatic transmissions have a chip in them that will prevent the car from downshifting, say, into first gear when you're moving at 60 mph. Still, I wouldn't try it. When climbing a hill, only downshift if the AT can't decide which gear to be in and switches back and forth--choose the lower one. When descending use brakes to decelerate. However, once you've braked, do use a low gear to coast in, to prevent you from freely accelerating down the hill.

There is a recall for harsh downshift in 4cyl versions of your generation Sonata. It is a simple ecu update a dealer can do and it should cost you nothing.

Looses power /slips going up a hill.


This is a hard question to answer without more information. If the vehicle has a sensation of slipping it is usally the automatic transmission that is at fault and it probably has to be rebuilt. The sensation of power loss could be from the slipping transmission. Try manually downshifting the trans. to a lower gear when going up a hill and see what happens. That can tell you if the problem is the trans, or the engine,

2004 sebring lxi 2.7L V6, engine revs when slowing down at stops, when automatic transmission downshifting. what are some causes of this?


I had a similar issue with my Sebring. I took it to the dealership and they just "rebooted" my computer system. They said the computer was getting confused and having problems downshifting. I would check with them. It only took a few minutes at the dealership to reset it. I was relieved that it wasn't something major!
Hope this helps.

2009 Toyota Camry problems


All Toyota auto trans cars downshift when descending a hill when you tap the brake. This is called "Downhill Shift Logic"; what this is for is to eliminate the double shift when you come to the bottom of a hill and then accelerate. Normal condition. Usually happens above 38 MPH.
Also: The cruise will accelerate when going uphill. Normal condition.Plus: The cruise will not disengage back to the set MPH after you top the hill. Toyota recommends to disengage the cruise when encountering steep terrain.
