trans slips

Asked by Apr 03, 2014 at 11:14 AM about the 2011 Toyota Camry SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

on the first drive in the mornings, the motor revs to 3000 rpms when shifting from 2 to 3 before engaging. I took it in under warranty and again at 51000 miles, the dealership plugs in the computer and tells me everything is good, I call BS to that, no other car I own does that.

Take it back to the dealer and have the service manager ride with you so he can experiance the issue. Dont bugging them stop till its fixed, you can also call toyota of north america and report the issue and dealer if they fail to fix it. Do it before the warranty is out.

Yeah depending on the type of trans it has, It sounds like the bands are slipping. On older cars you can take off the oil pan on the trans and adjust the bands so it doesn't flare between gear change, But newer cars don't even have oil pans on the trans if it's a FWD. Also is it cold were you are? if you don't let the engine warm up first before driving it could stay in the gears longer while the motor warms up. But try to get it fixed under your warranty for sure, I work at a Chrysler dealership and i know you have to be persistent even if they say it's OK.... It's not OK! there just trying to save a buck!
