I have a 2006 tundra and between 30 and 50 mph it feels like i am running over rumble strips. It does it often.Once past 50mph it runs great.
Loud motor running on starting, sounds like if you held the windshield wiper spray button on. Mechanic says it's a catalytic converter heater fan but I can't find any info on THAT and it runs in the summer. What could it be?
The tire pressure is according to specs. Just had new tires put on with new TPMS kit. The light was on before the tire installation.
Fuse checked OK

Have looked extensively but can not find a refill plug on my 2006 Tundra (V8-2WD). The Toyota service bulletin A750E,F shows a 24mm socket located on the passenger side of the tranny. Not there? Since there is no dipstick on this model, how do I go about adding fluid to the transmission?
AC works. when placed on level 2, cool air blows fine, but anything higher than that, cool air is intermittent and sometime blows warm air. also cool air blow has a delay in it, takes a little time for cool air to start coming in.
It smelled to me like a vehicle that needed its cabin filter replaced but I see the 06 Tundra does not have one. Any ideas what may be causing the smell?
