Trans Tune in 2002 Camry that won’t shift [SOLVED] Asked by Michael N. In California I have an automatic 2002 Camry LE V6 with 200k miles and it’s not shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Will Trans Tune fix that?
Thanks for the question! First, it never hurts to have the problem diagnosed by a certified mechanic. The fact that it’s not shifting at all (vs rough or erratic shifting) typically means it’s a mechanical problem. If it’s a mechanical problem, Trans Tune won’t help.
However, if it is a fluid-related problem, Trans Tune will help clean residues and improve performance.
For what it’s worth, a can of Trans Tune (less than $15) is probably worth a shot for a 2002 with 200k miles. Add a can to the transmission fluid and drive if you can. See what happens – it may help, or it may rule out that the problem is fluid-related.
