Shift issues??


New member
Just wondering if anyone else has had any shift issues with their Tacoma.

Recently it feels like my truck hesitates to shift into third gear a bit. RPMs run a little high before third is engaged?-----anyone have a solution or fix to this issue.---Maybe a tune-up?---Thanks.


Check your transmission fluid. Make sure it's not burnt and ensure the fluid level is sufficient according to your manual.

Yes, I agree with checking the transmission fluid.

However, for me this is a common occurance when the truck is cold and the outside temp drops. For example, this morning it was a chilly 2C on the way to work and the first few times I brought the speed up it tries to hold second gear much longer than normal. It is very noticable for the first few minutes of driving and then goes away.
