My 2007 Tacoma 4-dr pickup with an auto transmission shudders when I first start out (1st. gear). I can feel it again as it shifts into second. I have asked my Toyota service writer if they have had this complaint from other owners. he replied, "No."
I have owned over 144 automobiles in my life, and this is the first time I have encountered this problem. What do you think it is.
#54 of 601 leaking transmission in a 2007 standard 4wd tacoma
May 03, 2008 (12:50 pm)
has anyone had any trouble with leaking transmission fluid on a standard transmission tacoma?
brought it back to the dealer, they checked it out and said it was likely caused from overfill at the manufacturer...they cleaned it up and said should be fine
that was 3 weeks ago....
just checked it again...and found more fluid dripping on the crossmember...appears to be leaking from the top of the transmission...any ideas?

Please help? I have a well maintained 2005 Tacoma. Stopped this morning at a 7-11. When I got back into the truck the shifter would not engage the transmission. No warning at all. Anyone have an idea before I take it to the dealer. My extended warranty has expired, 80K miles. Not one single problem before this.

I also have a well maintained 2001 tacoma. Everything was running fine and then I went to start the truck when it was sitting in my driveway and the shifter would not engage the transmission.
What did you find out about this problem?

I have not found out yet. Had it towed to the dealer with my hand on my checkbook hoping it's minor. I should know today. Will let you know.

Hi - I have a 2001 Tacoma and I'm experiencing the same issue with my transmission not wanting to engage after it cools down. I was curious what you found relating to your problem?
Thanks, Tx_tim1 in Texas

#60 of 601 Toyota Tacoma Shifting RPM Issues
Mar 02, 2008 (2:15 pm)
I have a 2007 Tacoma, 2.7L, 5 speed manual with ~13k miles. Shifting from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to 4th works as expected: push in clutch, release accelerator, and engine RPM drops quickly to idle. Shifting from 4th to 5th presents a problem where the engine RPM does not immediately decrease and often increases. There is no indication of the accelerator sticking or any other mechanical throttle problem. Any ideas on what is causing this problem?

I have the same probem with my 2001 Tocma, not a 4x4. Right now I have a rope going from the pedel to the steering column ajust. lever so that I can pull the &^^%^& pedal off the floor. It's "redneck" rigging I know but this is my main ride and its just until I can figure it out and get it fixed. I have found that the problem is less if I stay off the clutch. No down shifting or stitting at a light with the clutch pedal pushed in. This model does have a master and slave cylinder, with only 20,000 on the truck. May have to replace them both ($100.00 for both).The first thing I did was make sure the fluid was at the right level. Its in the back right corner under the hood high on the fire wall, just in case you need to know. If any one knows anything we would love to hear from ya.

My problem (which sounds like yours also) turned out to be the master and slave cylinders.....changed both, less than 100.00 - never a problem again. Ran like a top. Since, I've traded the truck for a 07 tacoma - to be honest, wish I still had my 01. Hope this helps
