AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE SYSTEM


PRECAUTION
NOTE:

Perform the RESET MEMORY (AT initialization) when replacing the


automatic transaxle assembly, engine assembly or ECM (See MANUAL
SHIFTING TEST).
Perform the REGISTRATION (VIN registration) when replacing the ECM
(See REGISTRATION ).

HINT:
RESET MEMORY can not be completed by only disconnecting the battery cable.
1. The automatic transaxle is composed of highly precision-finished parts which need careful
inspection before reassembly. Even a small nick could cause fluid leakage or affect the
performance. The instructions here are organized so that you work on only one component group
at a time. This will help avoid confusion caused by similar-looking parts of different sub-assemblies
being on your workbench at the same time. The component groups are inspected and repaired from
the converter housing side. Complete the inspection, repair and reassembly before proceeding to
the next component group as much as possible. If a defect is found in a certain component group
during reassembly, inspect and repair this group immediately. If a component group cannot be
assembled because some parts are being ordered, be sure to keep all parts of the group in a
separate container while proceeding with disassembly, inspection, repair and reassembly of other
component groups. Recommended: Toyota Genuine ATF Type T-IV
2. All disassembled parts should be washed clean and any fluid passages and holes should be blown
through with compressed air.
3. Dry all parts with compressed air. Never use a shop rag or a piece of cloth to dry them.
4. When using compressed air, always aim away from yourself to prevent accidentally spraying ATF
or kerosene in your face.
5. Only recommended automatic transaxle fluid or kerosene should be used for cleaning.
6. After cleaning, the parts should be arranged in the correct order for efficient inspection, repair,
and reassembly.
7. When disassembling a valve body, be sure to match each valve together with the corresponding
spring.
8. New discs for the brakes and clutches that are to be used for replacement must be soaked in ATF
for at least 15 minutes before reassembly.
9. All oil seal rings, clutch discs, clutch plates, rotating parts, and sliding surfaces should be coated
with ATF prior to reassembly.
10. All gaskets and rubber O-rings should be replaced with new ones.

11. Do not apply adhesive cements to gaskets and similar parts.


12. Make sure that the ends of a snap ring are not aligned with one of the cutouts and are installed in
the groove correctly.
13. When replacing a worn bushing, the sub-assembly containing the bushing must also be replaced.
14. Check thrust bearings and races for wear or damage. Replace them as necessary.
15. When working with FIPG material, you must observe the following:
Using a razor blade and a gasket scraper, remove all the old packing (FIPG) material from the
gasket surface.
Thoroughly clean all components to remove any loose material.
Clean both sealing surfaces with a non-residue solvent.
Parts must be reassembled within 10 minutes of application. Otherwise, the packing (FIPG)
material must be removed and reapplied.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
1. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
a. The ECT (Electronic controlled automatic transmission/transaxle) is an automatic
transmission/transaxle that electronically controls shift timing using the ECM. The ECM detects
electrical signals that indicate engine and driving conditions, and controls the shift point, based on
driver habits and road conditions. As a result, fuel efficiency and power transmission performance
are improved.
Shift shock has been reduced by controlling the engine and transmission simultaneously.
In addition, the ECT has features such as follows:

Diagnostic function.
Fail-safe function when a malfunction occurs.

DIAGNOSIS SYSTEM
1. DESCRIPTION
a. When troubleshooting OBD II vehicles, the only difference from the usual troubleshooting
procedure is to connect an OBD II scan tool complying with SAE J1987 or a intelligent tester to the
vehicle, and read off various data output from the vehicle's ECM.
b. OBD II regulations require that the vehicle's on board computer illuminate the Malfunction
Indicator Lamp (MIL) on the instrument panel when the computer detects a malfunction in the
computer itself or in the drive system components which affect the vehicle emissions. In addition to
illuminating the MIL when a malfunction is detected, the applicable DTCs prescribed by SAE
J2012 are recorded in the ECM memory (See DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE CHART).
If the malfunction does not occur in 3 consecutive trips, the MIL goes off but the DTCs remain in
the ECM memory.

Fig. 8: Identifying (MIL) Malfunction Indicator Lamp


Courtesy of TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A., INC.
c. To check the DTCs, connect the OBD II scan tool or intelligent tester together with the CAN VIM
(controller area network vehicle interface module) to the DLC3 of the vehicle. The OBD II scan
tool or intelligent tester also enables you to erase the DTCs and check freeze frame data and
various forms of engine data (For operating instructions, see the instruction book).
d. The DTCs include SAE controlled codes and Manufacturer controlled codes. SAE controlled codes
must be set as prescribed by the SAE, while Manufacturer controlled codes can be set freely by a
manufacturer within the prescribed limits (See DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE CHART).

e. The diagnosis system operates in "normal mode" during the normal vehicle use. In normal mode,
"2-trip detection logic" is used to ensure accurate detection of malfunction. "Check mode" is also
available to technicians as an option. In check mode, "1-trip detection logic" is used for simulating
malfunction symptoms and increasing the system's ability to detect malfunctions, including
intermittent malfunction.
f. *2 trip detection logic: When a malfunction is first detected, the malfunction is temporarily stored
in the ECM memory (1st trip). If the ignition switch is turned off and then turned to the ON
position again, and same malfunction is detected again, the MIL will illuminate.
g. Freeze frame data records the engine conditions (fuel system, calculated load, engine coolant
temperature, fuel trim, engine speed, vehicle speed, etc.) when a malfunction is detected. When
troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was running or stopped, if the
engine was warmed up or not, if the air/fuel ratio was Lean or Rich, and other data from the time
the malfunction occurred.
h. The intelligent tester records freeze frame data in five different instance: 1) 3 times before the DTC
is set, 2) once when the DTC is set, and 3) once after the DTC is set. These data can be used to
simulate the vehicle's condition around the time when the malfunction occurred. The data may help
find the cause of the malfunction, or judge if the DTC is being caused by temporary malfunction or
not.

interface module) to the DLC3, turned the ignition switch to the ON position and operated the scan tool,
there is a problem on the vehicle side or tool side.
If the communication is normal when the tool is connected to another vehicle, inspect the DLC3 on
the original vehicle.
If the communication is still impossible when the tool is connected to another vehicle, the problem
is probably in the tool itself, so consult the Service Department listed in the tool's instruction
manual.
3. CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE
a. Measure the battery voltage.

Battery voltage: 11 to 14 V
If voltage is below 11V, replace the battery before proceeding.
4. CHECK MIL
a. The MIL comes on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and the engine is not
running.
HINT:
If the MIL does not light up, troubleshoot the combination meter.
b. When the engine is started, the MIL should go off. If the lamp remains on, it means that the
diagnosis system has detected a malfunction or abnormality in the system.
DTC CHECK / CLEAR
1. DTC CHECK (NORMAL MODE)
NOTE:

When the diagnostic system is switched from the normal mode to the
check mode, all the DTCs and freeze frame data recorded in the normal
mode will be erased. So before switching modes, always check the DTCs
and freeze frame data, and note them down.

a. Checking DTCs using the OBD II scan tool or intelligent tester.


1. Turn the ignition switch off.
2. Connect the intelligent tester together with the CAN VIM (controller area network vehicle
interface module) to the DLC3.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the on position and turn the OBD II scan tool or the intelligent

CHECK MODE PROCEDURE


HINT:
Check mode has a higher sensitivity to malfunctions and can detect malfunction that normal mode cannot
detect. Check mode can also detect all the malfunctions that normal mode can detect. In check mode, DTCs are
detected with 1 -trip detection logic.
1. DTC CHECK (CHECK MODE)
HINT:
Intelligent tester only: Compared to the normal mode, the check mode is more sensitive for detecting
malfunctions. Furthermore, the same diagnostic items which are detected in the normal mode can also be
detected in the check mode.
a. Procedure for Check Mode using the intelligent tester.
1. Check the initial conditions.
Battery positive voltage 11 V or more
Throttle valve fully closed
Transaxle in the P or N position

FAIL-SAFE CHART
1. FAIL-SAFE
This function minimizes the loss of the ECT functions when any malfunction occurs in each sensor or
solenoid.
a. Vehicle speed signal (SPD):
The vehicle speed is detected through signals from the crankshaft position sensor and shift position
signal to maintain normal control when the speed sensor has a malfunction.
b. Shift solenoid valve SL:
If the ECM detects a malfunction in the solenoid valve SL, it turns the valve off.
c. Shift solenoid valve S1 and S2:
Fail safe function:
If either of the shift solenoid valve circuits develops an open or short, the ECM turns the other shift
solenoid "ON" and "OFF" in order to shift into the gear positions shown in the table below.
The ECM also turns the shift solenoid valve ST OFF at the same time. If both solenoids
malfunction, hydraulic control cannot be performed electronically and must be done manually.
Manual shifting as shown in the following table must be done (In case of a short circuit, the ECM
stops sending current to the short circuit solenoid). Even if starting the engine in the fail-safe mode,
the gear position remains in the same position.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The park/neutral position switch detects the gearshift position and sends a signal to the ECM.
For security, the park/neutral position switch detects the gearshift position so that engine can be started only
when the vehicle is in P or N shift position.
When the park/neutral position switch sends more than one signal at a time from switch positions P, R, N, D, 2
or L, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the switch. The ECM will turn on the MIL and store the DTC.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The ECM uses the signals from the throttle position sensor, Air-flow meter, turbine (input) speed sensor and
crankshaft position sensor to monitor the engagement condition of the lock up clutch.
Then the ECM compares the engagement condition of the lock up clutch with the lock up schedule in the ECM
memory to detect a mechanical problems of the shift solenoid valve SL, valve body and torque converter clutch
or automatic transaxle (clutch, brake or gear etc.).

ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

Based on the signals from the throttle position sensor, the airflow meter and the crankshaft position sensor, the
ECM sends a signal to the shift solenoid valve SL to regulate the hydraulic pressure and provide smoother
gearshifts. The shift-solenoid valve SL responds to commands from the ECM. The valve controls the lock up
relay valve to perform torque-converter lock up and flexible lock up functions. The ECM compares the engine
rpm (NE) signal and the input speed calculated by output speed sensor (output speed) and gear ratio to detect
torque converter lock up. The ECM then compares the lock up status against the lock up schedule in the ECM
memory. If the ECM does not detect lock up at the appropriate time, it will conclude that there is a malfunction
of shift solenoid SL. The ECM will illuminate the MIL.

DTC P0751 SHIFT SOLENOID "A" PERFORMANCE (SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE S1)
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The ECM uses signals from the vehicle speed sensor and crankshaft position sensor to detect the actual gear
position (1st, 2nd, 3rd or O/D gear).
Then the ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect the mechanical
problems of the shift solenoid valves, the valve body or automatic transaxle (clutch, brake or gear etc.).

P0751
gear when driving (2-trip detection logic)

Shift solenoid valve S1


remains open or closed
Valve body is blocked
Shift solenoid valve S1
Automatic transaxle (clutch,

ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves "ON/OFF". According to the input shaft
revolution, and output shaft revolution, the ECM detects the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd or 0/D gear
position). When the gear position commanded by the ECM and the actual gear position are not same, the ECM
illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

DESCRIPTION

The linear solenoid valve (SLT) controls the transmission line pressure for smooth transmission operation based
on signals from the throttle position sensor and the vehicle speed sensor. The ECM adjusts the duty cycle of the
SLT solenoid valve to control hydraulic line pressure coming from the primary regulator valve. Appropriate line
pressure assures smooth shifting with varying engine outputs.
(*): Duty Ratio
The duty ratio is the ratio of the period of continuity in one cycle.
For example, if A is the period of continuity in one cycle, and B is the period of non-continuity, then Duty Ratio
= A/(A + B) x 100(%)

The O/D main switch (transmission control switch) is a momentary type switch. When pressing the O/D main
switch, the O/D OFF indicator light lights up and the ECM prohibits shifting into O/D, and when pressing it
once again, the O/D OFF indicator light goes off and the ECM allows shifting into O/D. Turning the IG switch
OFF will reset the O/D OFF indicator light.
