Shifting and Bogging Problem.
The trans on my 2002, 2.4L, Camry started to slip. I searched car-part.com for a used replacement. After doing a part search using the VIN number, I found a low mileage trans about 160 miles from me and bought it. My original trans was a U241E and replacement turned out to be a U241 from a 2004. During the installation process I noticed that the neutral safety switch plug did not fit my harness. I was able to get my original switch back and finished the job. As soon as I got on the road, the problems surfaced. The car did not want to shift and was bogging down during acceleration. After talking to a few techs, I could not get a straight answer to the cause. Some said the trans is bad, and the others said the ECU is not reading the trans correctly. I'm not sure who to believe, but a ECU replacement or reflash sounds a lot easier than swapping the trans out again. Anyone with a similar issue, and hopefully a resolution?
