U250E Transmission Technical Service Bulletins | TSBs
TSB TC010-06 – Harsh 5-4 downshift on deceleration – U250E transmission
2006 – 2007 Toyota Camry
Problem – Owners with the Toyota Camry U250E transmission may notice an unusually harsh 5-4 downshift when the transmission is at normal operating temperature, and the vehicle was traveling above 45 mph and has decelerated through 28 mph.
Solution – A revised line pressure control solenoid assembly will have to be installed.
Harsh shifts or shift flares between 2-3 or 3-4 – U250E transmission
Problem – Shortly after starting up, vehicles may experience shift flares or unusually hard shifts into third or fourth gear. The problem may go away, but return after the vehicle has sat overnight.
Solution – It’s possible that the battery needs to be replaced (the voltage is too low, resulting in the ECU going into the “relearn” process after starting up), or the ECU grounds are corroded.
Common U250E Transmission Problems
Erratic Shifting / Loss of Forward Gears: If you’re experiencing U250E transmission problems like slipping, erratic shifting, or failed gear engagement, the causes could range from a failed U250E solenoid, to a U250E torque convertor issue.
Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot.
Loss of 4th Gear and/or Reverse: Another common problem is an inoperable fourth or reverse gear. These issues are often caused by design flaws in the Reverse Boost Valve, channel plate, and stripped splines on the 4th gear clutch hub shaft.
Updates to Remanufactured U250E Transmissions
• A remanufactured and improved torque converter is included with every transmission.
• To eliminate the possibility of front seal leaks, vibration, and premature bushing wear, all torque converters are tested for leaks, lock-up, concentricity, and balance.
• Every fully remanufactured valve body, with complete system correction and recalibration kit, is tested independently.
• All wear-prone valves are restored to stringent specifications and vacuum tested to confirm proper function.
• Each remanufactured transmission is hot, cold, load, and simulated road tested using our proprietary CARS (Computer-Aided Road Simulation) dynamometer program.
• All remanufactured transmissions are backed by the industry’s best, no-hassle nationwide warranty.
How to Buy a Remanufactured U250E Transmission
1) Buying Locally
When you go to your local repair shop, they’ll order a remanufactured U250E transmission, then mark up the price. So at the end of the day, you’ll be paying 15% to 30% more than the actual cost of the unit.
2) Buying Online
Buying a reman transmission through a company like Street Smart Transmission will save you a considerable amount of money because you pay the wholesale price (avoiding a repair shop’s 15% to 30% markup), they’ll ship the unit to the shop of your choice free of charge, and returning your old transmission is free as well. Then all you have to pay for is the labor to install the unit (usually $400 to $800), and you’re on your way.
How Does it Work?
To order a remanufactured U250E transmission from a company like Street Smart Transmission, all you need to do is provide your vehicle’s VIN number, the mileage, and the address of the repair shop that you want it shipped to.
Replacing a transmission can be expensive, so Street Smart Transmission offers financing through PayPal Credit. Depending on your credit, you’ll be able to order a new transmission, get back on the road, then pay for it over time. You may have to pay labor charges for the installation up front, but you won’t have to shell out for the transmission all at once.
When it comes to shipping, a transmission is quite heavy. So you’re going to pay quite a bit of money, unless the reman transmission company offers free shipping. Street Smart offers free shipping to a business address, which is usually the repair shop that you’ve chosen to install the unit.
What is a Core Charge (Core Deposit)?
Every remanufactured transmission originally came from somebody else’s car. Therefore, they need your broken transmission in order to refurbish it for another customer.
Your old/damaged transmission is called a “core”, and many companies will collect a core charge (usually $500 to $1500), which will be refunded once they receive your old transmission. (Street Smart does not charge an up-front core charge.) Make sure to ask any company for their core return policy, so you’ll know what to expect.
We recommend Street Smart Transmission. We have found Street Smart to be of the highest quality. Their transmissions carry a 3 year / unlimited miles warranty that covers both parts and labor. Their warranty is nationwide and attached to the VIN so it is transferable with ownership if you decide to sell the vehicle. It also covers both parts and labor for the installation of the replacement transmission.
