  1. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Short backstory, friend ran over a curb which put a hole in their transmission oil pan, he drove for probably about 10 minutes (max) before his tire blew out. Once I got there we pushed the car into a parking spot and put the spare on only to find out that the car would only go into neutral (at...
  2. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    My '99 Tacoma 4wd has been making a clicking noise on and off for awhile now. It's got worse lately and this time the mechanic was able to isolate to a cracked flexplate when "a part was removed so we could see the crack". Everything I've read around the internet does point to this as the...
  3. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I have a Toyota Camry 2012 4cyl with about 200K Plus miles and I have experienced shuddering at speed 20-25 and 40-45, I looked up the carfax for the vehicle history from the previous owner and also took the car to local Toyota dealer service center to get it checked and saw that there was a...
  4. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I looked at a 2013 Toyota Camry LE with 50k that an owner needs to sell as he is moving out of the country. The car is in good condition with some minor wear and tear. I am getting it for about $9500. I have read on this forum and other places regarding the torque converter issue. I looked...
  5. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hi Guys, I own a 2015 Camry SE with 30 K miles. Purchased in June 2015. Recently starting this winter I am experiencing vibration or shudder as soon as the torque converter locks up/engages. I usually maintain 40-42 miles in inner roads and as soon as I start maintaining the speed, I feel the...
  6. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    My 2013 Highlander Limied Edition has 82k miles on it. It vibrates (deep rumble) at speeds between 35 and 45 mph at slow acceleration. If I accelerate further or decelerate, the car is fine with zero issues. I have rotated tires, changed tires, done wheel balancing and alignments but the issue...
  7. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    My GF and I were driving my Mother's '04 Camry (60k) back to Portland from FL when the check engine light came on. When I pulled over there was no fluid on the transmission dipstick and definitely fluid had come out on the front upper housing of the transmission and block. It also started...

    Hey everyone, I have 2010, Toyota Camry LE, 2.5L. Since September I been experiencing shudders while driving under light throttle, about 30-50mph. After it passes 50-60 range, it goes back to normal. I visited my local mechanic today and he told me there was a recall on all Toyota's that have...
  9. Venza Gen1 (2009-2016)
    I bought a 2010 Venza brand new from the dealer in August 2010, and it now has 150,000 miles. It's overall been a great car. My big concern right now is the transmission. My mechanic diagnosed it as a bad torque converter. I've just spent more than an hour reading all the problems Camry...
  10. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have been trying for 2 days now to put my Torque Converter into the Transmission and it's getting quite frustrating. I know that you have to basically line up the cuts in the TQ with the slots in the Transmission but it just won't go in. I've push, turn, and lift but it doesn't slide inside...
  11. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello and thank you for reading my question, I greatly appreciate it. Relating to a 2010 Camry XLE V6 auto, is there a way to bypass the fuel cutoff mode to avoid the "drag" sensation and deceleration of the vehicle when coasting? Maybe a performance tuner and programmer? I understand the...
  12. RAV4 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Looking to see how many people have had an issue with their torque converter and those who have not. Curious to see how widespread it is or if it was just a handful of vehicles. Just for my own curiosity. No problems yet at 36k miles.
  13. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hi I just noticed a vibration between 25 to 40 mph. I read online that many people are experiencing torque converter shutter. I took the car in to toyota Santa Monica, CA. They told me there has been an update on the software last year with the first owner of the car . They suggested me to...
  14. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Since this was a pretty long story, I'll keep it short. My Car has 86k miles on it. I went in last week to get the Torque Converter warrantied and replaced. It would shudder when slowing down back into first gear. After I got my car back it seemed to be worse than how it was, also the alignment...
  15. RAV4 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Recently bought a 2013 Rav4 with a faulty TC. Fortunately I only had the car a week and thanks to the posts on here I was able to diagnose the issue. Vibration as the vehicle upshifts at 20mph at 1200-2000 RPM's. The vehicle had 72,000 but since I only had it a week, the dealership is footing...

  17. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    So I brought my car to the dealer today and mentioned about a light shudder at light throttle between 25 to 45 mph maybe while shifting between 3rd and 5th. Its a 2012 SE with 52K. Otherwise the car runs smooth at other low and high speed. The software update has been already done about a month...

    I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE (1.8L 4cyl 4A) with 117,214 Miles on it. A year and a half a go my Torque Converter had a catastrophic malfunction and spewed it's innards into the gear box and this led to me having the transmission rebuilt completely. The guy who I brought it to took about 6...
  19. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hello. There is a wierd sound coming from the transmission of my camry. It has 170,000 miles on it. I took it to 2 places today and they both said it was coming from the transmission. One guy said it could be the torque converter and he could change the filter and replace the oil for 160.00...

    1996 1.8L automatic Does anyone know what the torque specs are for the bolts that connect the flywheel to the crankshaft and the bolts for the flywheel to the torque converter? Haynes has confused me once again. It just lists flywheel bolts but doesn't say which ones and lists them as 47...
