About Our Remanufactured AY6 Transmission
Like the engine, the transmission is a critical part of your automobile. Without it, your car won’t move. When the transmission starts to cause problems, it's important to replace it right away so you don’t get stranded.
There are four main options for replacing a transmission. If you can find a new Aisin AY6 transmission for sale, you can buy it. This is the most expensive option, and if there is a problem with the factory version, your new one will have that problem. You can buy a used one instead, but even if it's inspected, it will have wear and may fail fairly quickly. Buying a rebuilt transmission AY6 is another option, but as you will see, that isn’t the best option either. Getting a remanufactured transmission is usually the best choice. This way, you get a mix of reliability and affordability that the other options do not offer.
Rather than spending your money on a new transmission or having your current AY-6 rebuilt, it is usually best to invest in a high-quality remanufactured AY-6 from Reman-Transmission. We offer affordable prices and top-notch products. There are several other reasons to invest in our remanufactured AY-6 transmissions, as well.
Simply rebuilding a transmission involves replacing the worn-out parts with new ones, while leaving the original parts that seem okay in place. This can result in unequal wear inside the unit and lead to early failure. Remanufacturing, on the other hand, involves replacing or re-machining all of the parts inside the bell housing so that it is evenly distributed throughout the unit. This gives the remanufactured unit enough strength and durability to last for up to 200,000 miles – maybe even more. Our transmission experts go beyond rebuilding to provide transmissions that meet or exceed OEM specifications.
All known factory defects are also fixed during the remanufacturing process. This makes it so that if the original design had flaws that caused early wear, the remanufactured version maybe even better than the original version.
This is especially important with the AY-6, which has had problems associated with certain years and auto-makes. For example, some Tacoma and Camaro owners have had to install three transmissions in only 30,000 miles, apparently due to problems with the synchronizers. The synchros were faced with brass in some years, and they couldn’t hold up to the demands commonly placed on sport-utility vehicles like the Tacoma. The remanufacturing process of the transmissions should eliminate these problems.
The warranty on our remanufactured AY6 transmissions is up to 36 months, with no mileage limit. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you're protected if the unit doesn’t last.
We do also sell used AY6 transmissions that haven’t been remanufactured or rebuilt; the warranty on them is up to 6 months or 6,000 miles. A used transmission is the cheapest possible option for doing a direct replacement but does not offer the benefits of a remanufactured one.
Shipping for our AY-6 transmissions is only $398. Combined with our warranty, this makes our remanufactured AY-6 transmissions the best choice for anyone sticking with this particular trans model.
AY6 Frequently Asked Questions
What is the torque rating of the Aisin AY6?
The maximum engine torque that the AY-6 can handle is 345 ft-lbs. (468 Nm). For the Cadillac CTS version, it is 255 ft-lbs., or 345Nm.
What kind of transmission fluid and how much fluid does an AY-6 take?
The AY-6 MV1 transmission requires 3.9 pints of 75W90 gear oil. Under normal operating conditions, no maintenance is required once the fluid is added. However, fluid changes are recommended for heavy-duty use.
What cars have an AY-6 transmission?
The AY6 transmission came in the 2003-2010 Cadillac CTS, 2010-2015 Chevrolet Camaro, 2004-2006 Toyota Tundra, 2004-2015 Toyota Tacoma, 2006-2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2005-2012 Lexus IS220d, and 2005-2012 Lexus IS250.
How long does an AY-6 transmission last?
It depends on the vehicle, the year, and how the vehicle is driven. Some Tacoma owners report failures as quickly as 10,000 miles or less, while others have at least 60,000 with no problems. Owners of Camaros report similar issues. The Tacoma issue highlights the importance of getting a remanufactured transmission that has had its factory defects corrected, such as the AY6 transmission for sale here at Reman-Transmission.
AY6 History & Information
The Aisin AY6 transmission is a 6-speed manual transmission that is made by Aisin Corporation, a Japanese company. Prior to 2019, the manufacturer was known as Aisin AI. The company has also done business as Aisin-Warner, among other names. The variety of names is due to mergers throughout the years.
Until 1996, Aisin AI's only customer was Toyota, but later, DaimlerChrysler and Isuzu became clients. After this, General Motors began using the AY-6 units as well. There is also a Chevy AY6 manual transmission.
GM did not keep the AY-6 name for the units in its cars. Instead, they used the names RPO MV1, MV5, and MV7. The MV5 was used in only one type of car. It is the manual transmission in the 2010 Camaro.
The MV7 version was used for the 2010 Cadillac CTS.
The AY-6, whether under its main name or a GM variant, has also been used in a wide variety of other cars and light trucks, including the 2004 Holden VZ Commodore, the Holden VZ Ute, the 2005 Cadillac CTS, and Toyota's Tundra, Tacoma, Land Cruiser Prado, FJ Cruiser, and Mark X GRMN, among others. A range of model years have this unit, mostly ranging from 2004 through 2015, with the specifics varying by the car's make and model.
The version used in the Cadillac CTS is different from the others. GM specified that it has closely-spaced gear ratios so that it would have even stepping between gears. This also allowed the transmission to be optimized for the CTS engines.
There are some unique factors involved in the standard AY-6 transmission as well. It used a rare “tailset” design, which is the opposite confirmation that most manual transmissions have. This provides a new path of torque flow that lets it carry less torque and run at a higher RPM. This is meant to let it handle more torque than a manual with the typical “headset” design.
The tail set design also reduces the inertia needed for the synchronizers to match current gear speeds when shifting, which translates into an easier shifting experience for the driver.
Like all transmissions, the AY-6 will eventually wear out. Instead of having your old one rebuilt or replacing it with a used one, think about getting a remanufactured one from Reman-Transmission. These are remanufactured to meet or exceed the OEM specifications and are very affordable.
Our transmissions have also had all known factory defects repaired. This is especially important for the AY-6, which has had synchronizer problems reported by the owners of Camaros and Tacomas that use it. At the time the problems started to be detected, Toyota was replacing the transmissions quietly, on a case-by-case basis, instead of issuing a general recall. This limited publicity about the problems, and saved Toyota money. Now, it is still important to choose a transmission that has had these factory problems fixed before shipment.
All-in-all, the AY6 transmission came in the 2003-2010 Cadillac CTS, 2010-2015 Chevrolet Camaro, 2004-2006 Toyota Tundra, 2004-2015 Toyota Tacoma, 2006-2017 Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2005-2012 Lexus IS220d, and 2005-2012 Lexus IS250.
