Toyota Tacoma Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

(16 reports)

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

98' tacoma transmission winding out to 30mph before shifting to 2nd gear and winding out to 55mph before going into 3rd gear. Also the overdrive will not engage. -

Truck started to vibrate and not shift properly! When traffic comes to a stop and I have to hit my brakes real quick my transmission goes out/ feels like it goes in to neutral, when I accelerate the rpms go to 4k and have to let off then it's an abrupt shift and loud noise!! Even when I turn and hit the brakes my transmission does the same damn thing feels like it goes into neutral and when I accelerate the rpms just shoot up like its in neutral!! And then it's an abrupt shift and loud noise!! I just had the transmission flushed and refilled!! What the hell is going on I've had older toyotas with way more miles and this has never happened!!! -
