TOYOTA A240L, A241E, A243L Transmission Service and Repair Manual
The A240L, A241E and A243L automatic transaxles are 4-speed transaxles with a lock-up mechanism developed exclusively for use with a transversely-mounted engine. The A241E automatic transaxle is an Electronically Controlled Transaxle (hereafter called ECT).
These automatic transaxles have the following features.
- The “Super-Flow” torque converter is used to improve the transmission efficiency.
- When shifting the transmission, the engine torque is controlled and the clutch hydraulic pressure in the transmission is electronically controlled to reduce transmission shift shock. (A241E)
- Transaxle control ECU has been integrated with the Engine ECU. (A241E)
These automatic transaxle are mainly composed of the torque converter with lock-up clutch, 4- speed planetary gear unit, the hydraulic control system and the electronic control system.
