#20 of 69 Re: 2008 Tundra Clunk Noise After Take Off [harringtonway]
Nov 13, 2008 (9:27 pm)
I have a 2008 Toyota Tundra Crew Max with 10,000 miles on it, and when ever I back out of the driveway and shift into drive I hear the same noise that (HARRINGTONWAY) hears. A loud clunk. Just for your info I just got back from the dealer about 6 hours ago. They drove the truck and shifted in reverse and drive. They told me that they didnt hear any noise. I am not sure what to believe. But I can say that I didnt here any noise like this when I bought it. Not sure what to do. I was told by technician that the drive train on the Tundra is built with slack in it, to allow movement during hill or bumpy surface driving..Let me know if you here anything different. Thanks.

I have a new 2008 5.7 offroad 4wd and I hear the clunk too.
I think that there is some sort of built in governor due to the heavy tow payload which prevents it from peeling off when you step on the gas. The clunk is sort of a delay when putting it into gear.
When is the first service due on a new truck? Mine are included but I can't find it in the literature.
I have exactly 1700 miles on it now.

the door stop on my under warranty 07 regular cab broke and they are not covering under warranty.
initially i had a vibration at 15 and 25 mph and took it in said they replaced a transmission converter
the drive train in general seems to be very temper mental on my 07 5.7l auto with occasional jerks, bangs, clunks, and generally crappy transmission of power to the ground

I am not pleased with what seems to be ocassional transmission clunking type noises in my 08. It seems like there is slippage inside the transmission, because sometimes the truck shifts very awkwardly. Toyota in El Paso TEXAS says nothing is wrong, as they drove it and found nothing(of course).. Dont know what to do. Any comments welcome.................

maybe this is intimidation from the dealer to you, and they are waiting to see if you take it to another level in terms of seeking just compensation, fixing the defective (plastic??)
#28 of 69 Re: 2000 tundra accelerator failure [syldryn]
Jan 19, 2009 (2:07 pm)
I own a 2008 Tundra 5.7 4WD double cab.
I notice that sometimes I can't get it to accelerate. It either feels 'stuck' or it herky jerks forward.
Another time, it popped out of D into N after some slippage on the ice.
This is happening when I am messing with the 4hi-4lo stuff.
Please advise if I am doing it right:
My understanding is to go slowly ahead and turn to 4hi, but then to get to 4lo, I need to stop and put it on neutral.
It also needs to be in 4hi first, before you can take it to 4lo which was not the case with my 2000.
But this transmission thing is so weird.
I have not gone back yet for the 5,000 service, only have less than 3,000 on it and have a 7 year paid warranty.
PS - I need to keep it in 4hi at times just to get up and down my driveway... which never melts even if the street is dry. But I don't ever drive with it in 4W unless the roads are snowy.

Did you get a fix for this? My 07 has now twice started to shimmy violently on the freeway at 70 mph. The incidents happend about a week apart with no warning. It is so intermittent that I doubt the service department could help...
Anyone else have this problem?
