TSB to fix low speed 1-2 / 2-1 shifting characteristics. TSB 0393-09
TSB 0393-09 deals with this specific issue. IT WORKS! Just as many on this blog have discussed low speed "gear- hunting" problems, I too had them. There is a lot of chatter on this site about TSB 0703-10 to fix this, There is no such TSB and the blogs citing this TSB number are creating confusion.
Inform your dealer of this fix. It involves re-flashing the computer with a revised program specifically for the A 10 model transmission installed in the Toyota Tachoma 4X4 and 4X2 6 cylinder models. It does NOT deal with vibration or banging issues described in many of the blog messages.

question? Does anyone know what the TSB # is for the correction in a auto transmission that hunts for the correct gear about 40-50mph,. mine seems to shift up and down at these speeds. and also the trans. shifts down hard, only at times. I'm thinking the downhill assist control mod. is doing that.. anyway to disconnect this feature..???????????

I believe others on hear have used the -10 on their 2010's. This is the first I've heard of there not being such a version. I have the -09 and have assumed from others on here that the only difference of the two TRB's is the year make of the vehicle. Can anyone there confirm this? I want everyone to get this problem fixed if possible and don't want to pass out erroneous information.

Running into the same problem with my 2009 tacoma 5spd, 4wd, regular cab. Noticeable clunk shifting from 1st to second and 2nd to third. 'Crunch' when going into 2nd. I don't even have 4,000 miles on the truck.
Going to bring it in to the dealer next week and have them take a look. I drove another 09 tacoma this week and the transmission felt like butter compared to mine. Hopefully I haven't wrecked or significantly worn the tranny.

If I understand your statement correctly you want a copy of the TSB right? In order to do that I need your email address which they request that we do not do here. However, I know of no other way to do it.

I think you'll find the slight bump forward while stopped is indeed the compressor kicking on or off. It's annoying isn't it? See if it still happens when a/c is off and remember, the compressor is also on in the defrost mode too. Ment to remove moisture from cab to help clear windows.
