you mean, the transmission is dead? did you have to replace it? My is 100k and never changed tranny oil. Thinking about getting it done.I decided not to wait and mess with it myself. I got a dozen recommendations for a local transmission shop.I scheduled an appointment with them. They wanted $123.xx.... dealer wanted $268.
The shop put the camry on the lift, inspected the underside. pulled the plug, pulled the straw. drained the used ATF WS. Then they pulled the pan off and inspected everything. My car is a Gen 6.5 (2011) that is suppose to have a sealed transmission.... Well it has a removable drain pan.
They put it back on, filled it. Ran it to temperature. checked the straw and plug.Level is correct.
I had 114,500 miles on the original ATF WS. I had them drain the fluid in a separate container that was clean and the original fluid still "Looked" good, it wasn't really dirty.
But after driving the car around a few days, You can tell the new fluid is thicker (The fluid with 144,000 miles on it did break down because the shifting felt a little stiffer/ smoother and not "loose" maybe that is not the right term)
But it feels like new and there is a difference.
With these 2 vdo and combine with this forum, i think it can be done successfully and fast
scotty kilmer said something about if tranny doesn't change at all the friction in the oil keeps the shift from stiffing. I am not even sure if that applies to your case.
