2015 Camry with 4 cyl and Aisin 6 speed automatic

Asked by Mar 02, 2016 at 04:20 PM about the 2015 Toyota Camry SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a new 2015 Camry last Sept and in the morning when it's cool I start the car and after 15 seconds I put it in "drive".  The transmission engages for a second, then it releases for about a second and then engages again.  It does this every morning and again in the afternoon when I back out of my parking space at work and put it in Drive, it cycles the same way.  At a traffic signal I was the first car at a left-turn signal and I put it in neutral, it's a loooong light and when the green arrow came on I was slow in getting going and the guy behind me honked (no, I was not on my phone) and when I felt the transmission engage I stepped on it...well...the transmission released from first gear, the engine revved way up and the tranny re-engaged and I smoked the tires.  Is this normal for this to happen with this car?  I took it in to have this checked and the dlrshp could not find anything wrong with it.  HELP!

The obvious thing to check is the transmission fluid level. Being a newer car, it may have a sealed transmission with no stick. If you are able to pull the stick and check the fluid level, that would be the first step. If you purchased this new from the dealer, I would be bringing it back to the shop and leaving it there for them to deal with. Should be under warranty still. Since the car is new, there's probably a bad sensor or short that is interrupting the signal from the transmission to the computer. There will be no way for you to diagnose an issue like that much less fix it. A new car like that should not be having issues this early. Keep us posted.........
