Re: Trans issues 08

This is the only TSB I could find applicable to the 2008 Avalon transmission.

TSB 0061-08 . . . . . May 13, 2008 . . . . . Torque Converter Shudder

Section: Automatic Transmission/Transaxle Market: USA
2007 – 2009 Camry Transmission(s): 6AT
2008 Avalon Transmission(s): 6AT

Some customers may be concerned about an intermittent shudder when lightly accelerating after an upshift around the following speeds: 26 mph (42 km/h) (4th), 36 mph (58 km/h) (5th) and/or 44 mph (71 km/h) (6th). Production changes to the torque converter assembly have been implemented to improve this condition. Refer to the repair procedure below for diagnostic instructions to confirm if the torque converter needs to be replaced to address customer concerns.

Production Change Information:
This TSB applies to vehicles produced BEFORE the Production Change Effective VINs shown below.
Avalon 4T1BK36B#8U299716
