I have Toyota Camry 2002 V6 automatic transmission it is shifting very rough I think from 2 to 3 gear at about 30/40 km/h and when slowing down to about 30 km/h AT gives ****
The first thing I suggest to do is change the transmission fluid. This will require you to remove the transmission pan. To Do this: a. purchase transmission fluid, transmission pan gasket, and transmission filter). You may also want to purchase some gasket sealant, but his is not necessary - however it will help hold the gasket to the pan when installing the pan. Put a light beat all the way around the pan, then using your finger spread it the width of the pan (where bolt holes are) and let dry for about 5 minutes before putting new gasket on. Once the gasket is on, let it sit for about 10 minutes so it will stick and stay in place while putting the pan back into position (remember to install new filter before putting pan on).
1. Loosen the front bolts then the side bolts on either side (only one side) then, start removing the bolts on the other side, and the rear one by one until the pan becomes loose enough to lightly pry down. Once this is accomplished, you will drain the fluid into a drop pan (will hold the fluid). Once the majority of the fluid has been drained, slowly remove the rest of the bolts while holding the pan up (can use a small jack) - then lower pan holding it level. Drain remaining contents into the drop pan. (leave pan under transmission while doing this as to allow excess fluid from transmission itself to drain; won't be a lot, but will be some). While the transmission is draining, remove the transmission filter. After you have removed the filter, install the new filter. If you have already put the gasket on the transmission pan, you are ready to install it. When insterting the bolts, put one in each corner of the transmission pan so that all corners are up and the pan is securely in place. This will allow you to install the rest of the bolts without holding the pan up and any side. Insert the other bolts every other hole, finger tight. Once you have these in place, snug each one. Then insert the rest of the bolts, and do the same. When you have snugged the last one, go to the one right next to it (or start with that one) and turn each one just less than a 1/4 turn (ever other one) and do the same for the rest). This will ensure each bolt is snug, and the pan gasket will seal. DO NOT overtighten the bolts as this will cause leaks. Once you have all the bolts snug, lower the vehicle and put the recommended amount of fluid in the transmission (auto parts dealer will tell you how much). Once this is accomplished, start the vehicle and let it idle until at operating temperature. Check fluid for fullness - add fluid if needed until transmission is full. DO NOT overfill the transmission fluid.
