You would most likely need a rebuild for a long life use.
If your just needing to get by without spending a bunch of cash.
Lucas oil has a product that you can get at autozone to "rejuvinate" your transmission.
I did this a couple of years ago to an old Ford, and it still is working O.K.

the transmission forward band is slipping flushing or replacing fluid will not help you will have to overhaul or replace transmission the reason problem got worse after fluid replacement is that the dirty fluid actually helps to seal minor spaces in clutches and bands when new fluid circulates through passages it will pick up deposits and remove dirt sealing clutches and bands most trans shops dont reccomend replacing trans fluid on vehicles over 120,000miles or 180,000kms that haven had regular trans fluid maitenance for that exact reason

Low transmission fluid is usually the only reason power engages late or slippage occurs. But changing the transmission fluid again would not hurt. The stuff really shouldn't deteriorate like engine oil. Be sure to not run the vehicle many miles until the problem is completely resolved < 100 miles. One easy check would be to make sure the transmission lines are well connected and maintain pressure as well as fluid level. The good thing is that Toyota has a reputation of very good transmissions.

It can never hurt to have the tranny flushed and good fluid put in there. If it had issues and was run low on fluid for too long I hope it did not do some damage. Absolutely get it flushed and see if that does the trick. Doesn't matter how many miles really. Dont just keep it topped off, the fluid that's in there now may have picked up some debris and needs to be changed. Hope it helps!

in your transmission you have a shift solinoid that is probably sticking, when and if you replace it, also have the bands adjusted (every 12000 miles or the next transmission flush)

Slips between gears.


well I guess I will say change the fluid again and change the filter- you simply do not have enough miles to be transmission failure- so my guess wil be the shift solenoid as well - contact dealer to confirm.They will have to change with solenoid anyway.I sold my last honda with 275,000 miles and it had a hard life- no issues ever

Chevrolet Malibu 2001 Transmission Flush or not


75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.
