Disadvantages of the Toyota A960E gearbox

  • This is a fairly reliable gearbox and does not have any design problems.
  • If used too actively, the oil quickly becomes contaminated with wear products.
  • And if the oil in the automatic transmission is not regularly updated, the solenoids will not last long.
  • In particularly advanced cases, this dirt will simply corrode the channels in the valve body plate.
  • Also, the service station periodically changes the wiring of the solenoids and the oil pump bushing.
