Toyota Venza Transmission Problems



  • These three lights were simultaneously lit 2 weeks ago but I noticed no driving or shifting issues. Dealer has had my car for one week and I really have been given no info about what is wrong. Supposedly the master technician has a call into Toyota regarding my car. I am pretty worried about this. Anyone have any imput?

    What's the weather like when this happens....COLD ?

    ATF volume expands a fairly great amount with a rise in temperature.

    Low brake fluid reservior level, or failing level sensor, will result in "brake" indicator illumination and that in turn will disable some of the brake use functions, VSC, etc.

    It sounds to me as if the Toyota factory is cutting corners, cutting COST corners, by only marginally filling fluids, ATF, brake, etc.

    With size/volume of the ATF sump having already been reduced, by design, to the absolute minimum for purposes of FE, even a slight underfill could result in these problems, especialy on COLD weather conditions.

    The actual factory fill level may even be selective based on ship destination, Canada/Alaska = COLD = higher fill level.
  • Took the vehicle in, dealer hooked it up on the computer.....$1200 for the part plus labour.

    Anyone else seen this?

    They said that with the light permanently ON, past weeks it was intermittent, means the AWD feature of the vehicle is disabled.
  • Hi Forum ..I have 2010 v6 fwd...And im at alost here i have 65,000 mile on it and my transmission has the famous tempermental issue...I did get a code at first of P0793 Intermediate shaft Sensor now the code is not present after reading alot about this transmission i decided to change the transmission oil but that didnt work so now i am hoping this Shaft sensor does the job..Here is what happens on occasion the transmission doesnt engage delays while going into gear then those famous lights turn on (Check Engine and ABS) i have my phone hooked up to my OBD port the only error i get is a Oxygen Sensor B2S2 But if i erase the codes the car drives like a brand new car ...Has anyone else got the Intermediate shaft sensor code P0793
