Disadvantages of the Toyota UA80 gearbox

  • Such automatic transmissions produced before 2018 were subject to recall due to manufacturing defects.
  • But in general, this is a very reliable gearbox if you keep its cooling system clean.
  • High temperature reduces the life of Teflon rings and oil pressure drops.
  • And low pressure causes the clutches in the bags to burn, then the steel discs, and so on.
  • Even during active driving, the valve body quickly becomes clogged with friction wear products.
