Toyota has a fail safe sensor in the transmission that prevents the truck from shifting or moving when the temperature of the fluid gets too hot. Great idea but need to tell consumers about it too.

I have a 2000 Tundra with a 4.7L engine and automatic transmission. The transmission seems to go into neutral while stopped and then hesitates to go back to first gear when I hit the accelerator. The truck has just over 100,000 miles and has been serviced. The problem did go away after I had the radiator replaced about a year ago but it has resurfaced recently.

My 2008 Tundra 4WD makes a clunking clashing sound in the front end when the rear wheels slip but sometimes at other events. Selecting 4WD high range most often causes the transmission to shift very hard and loud. It is impossible sometimes to get this truck into 4WH low. I bought this truck new and have had it back to the dealer twice with no help. 35,000 miles. Any ideas?

Sounds as if you're using 4WD when you shouldn't be. You have a "PART-TIME" 4WD system that should NEVER be engaged except on a KNOWN slippery, low-traction surface.
Also, even on a low traction surface you should disengage 4WD once underway, traveling above ~20-25 MPH.
Since 4X4 mode "4WD low", uses a spline/dog type clutch so it will often be difficult to engage, trying rolling slowly, VERY slowly, backward while shifting into 4X4 mode.

You should be flushing it, there's a lot of fluid that stays in your tranny so when you just exchange the fluid in the oil pan your not getting much of the oil, you should also change the filter.

I have a 2000 Tundra with a 6 cyl. engine and automatic transmission. The transmission seems to go into neutral while stopped and then hesitates to go back to first gear when I hit the accelerator. Now I can't get the transmission engaged at all, even though the gear selector moves. The truck has 133,000 miles and has been serviced.

When he battery died it killed the power to the soliniod and your hubs stopped trying to lock themselves. the button was still in the 4wd position and when you fired it back up to move he next day they slipped into position. I have a 94 s10 blazer and if I don't keep up maintenance on the 4wd actuator it seizes up every winter. I have to punk he battery let it sit for 5 mins then re-try it. if that doesn't work I have to pull the battery and move the cable.manually a few times to free it up. good YouTube video on it.... Nothing beats the good ol 4wd stick on the floor....
