I am not an automatic transmission specialist but I do know how to do internet searches.

Following URL indicates that the speed sensor can fail due to the transmission overheating.

https://maktrans.net/Dattchik-skorosti-AKPP-U660E-Toyota-Camry-06-up-RAV4-09-up-Avensis-09-15-Highlander-13-up-Avalon-07-up-Lexus-ES350-06-15-NX200-14-up-RX350-09-up-8941333030-B-U

Bad news is that this component is internal. It is most likely located near the valve body so hopefully can be accessed without having to remove the transmission.

If you have overheated the transmission then the ATF will also need to be replaced.

You will be poorer in $$$ from this experience. If you want to do stupid, then get yourself another car e.g. Ford Turbo XR6 then blow up the turbo [like my son].

Oh Deyrick, Aurions aren't the right car for donuts mate. Sorry, but karma has bitten here. Who knows what kind of damage you've done to it. You could have also damaged the CVs too.

If you can get a transmission for 1k (that is if it is in fact broken), I'd jump on it cos they are usually around the 3-4k mark. Ashley you can correct me if I'm wrong.

Get yourself a proper, rear wheel drive and go to town, preferably in a controlled environment such as the drag strip or something.

We don't advocate dangerous driving here..

Good luck with it and let us know how you go.

Cheers

Tony

My experience is that the Aurion is a great Highway cruiser. Able to run all day and when you need to overtake, there is plenty of power for a quick overtaking manouvre then back to leisurely cruising.

I know that I have a V6 with 200kw of power and have nothing to prove.

In my book, winning is all about getting safely from point A to B. Losing is a broken down or wrecked car. Prefer to leave that to the Holden and Ford boys playing with their toys. Also a low profile means no police attention and those involuntary offers to contribute to the Govt coffers.

You nailed it Ashley. My Aurion always gives me a sense of satifaction when I drive it, which is not that often as it's my wife's daily.

On the freeway runs it's a Boss car when you need to overtake. The power delivery is effortless and smooth. I  like to fly under the radar too.

For me, It's the perfect family car. Unpretentious, reliable, comfortable, smooth and best of all, It's fast when you need it to be.

I'm in Sydney, otherwise i could've helped you myself.

I invested in one recently so I can do all my cars. 

Modern cars, it's become a necessity unfortunately. If I were you I'd look into buying one for yourself, that way you can avoid having to pay someone.

You can get decent ones for a couple hundred dollars. Shop around.

Thanks mate ile look into it kinda hopeing clearing the codes may help

No problem. I suspect though that just clearing codes wont fix a pre existing condition.

If there is a hardware issue then the code will keep getting thrown up.

You may be lucky enough to have someone near you who can hook up to your OBD II and see what's going on. It will be a good starting point.

Regards

Tony

Got it scanned came up with code c1201 whould that stop trans from working 

Does your car have "Check VSC System" on your instrument cluster ?

What about check engine light ?

Are there any warning lights indicating at all ?

C1201 code can be many things and not just one specific item. This is the problem with decoding. You will end up shot gunning the parts process an be nowhere close to fixing the issue.

For eg. http://c1201.enginetroublecode.com/toyota-aurion  This link talks about several things not even remotely related to your car and yet it discusses C1201.

My experience with electronic glitches is always check the wiring integrity. Check ALL the wiring plugs are mated correctly around the engine and I mean everything. get under the car too and take a look under there also. Check the wiring to the transmission. ( don't ask me where it all is, just take a look). Sometimes wiring can come apart or even moisture ingress and corrosion sets in.

Maybe your reverse donuts ( I'm just picturing this in my mind too,... so funny) has managed to shake part of the wiring loose from your hooliganism. If it's something controlling the transmission then it will make sense it feeling like it's in neutral. It may not be communicating.

Worse case. Take it to Toyota and have them scan it with their equipment.

Have you read those URLs that I have provided?

Read them and you will have some action items that will not cost much except some time and effort.
