2005 Tacoma Prerunner hard shift after breaking

I have a 2005 PreRunner: When slowing down at a turn I sometimes feel the transmission miss a shift or shift harder than normal. I can recreate this problem in any gear if I - break hard, and after coming to a complete stop, I step on the accelerator as I normally would and the engine reves but will not move, then all of a sudden, the transmission will seem to kick in. The dealer diagnosed this as driveline bind (has a 2 piece driveline) and cost me $ to have the driveline greased. That was a waste and did nothing. Any ideas? One of the service techs said it may be cavitation of the fluid. The tranny is sealed and is not meant to be serviced by other than the dealer. Apparently there is a procedure to flush and add fluid (between certain temperatures)?

    my 2001 Tacoma prerunner will start. but when I go to put it in drive it doesn't move and it makes a grinding noise. it sounds like its coming from the tranny. and I go offroading... could it be that there is mud or water in the fluid and I just need to flush and replace fluid and replace filter???

How do I adjust low idle adaptation on 2005 Tacoma prerunner 4.0

1. Relearn the idle speed by disconnecting the EFI fuse and the ECTS fuse from the under hood fuse box. Leave the fuses out for 2-3 minutes minimum. Reinstall the fuses. Using your finger, push the throttle plates closed completely. Hold the throttle plates closed completely and have a helper turn the ignition switch on. Release the throttle plates as soon as the key is turned on. Reinstall the boot to the throttle body and start the vehicle. Allow the vehicle to idle for 5 minutes. Test drive the vehicle and check for normal idle operation.

I have a 2008 Tacoma Prerunner automatic. I am getting a shimmy at 30-35 mph. I believe it is a transmission issue. Could that be because it is low on transmission fluid?

How would the transmission be low on fluid ?

It's up to you to check for leaks & the fluid level

If you think it is slipping, you may as well
pull the trans & have it rebuilt

Don't change the fluid every 2 or 3 years, you
have a failed trans

All vehicle fluids break down & very few people
change them

2006 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner, 2WD, 4.0L V6, 5-speed Automatic has a severe vibration from the speed of 20 mph to 50 mph, then the vibration will slightly deminish.

Is it the engine vibrating or the car? If its the car itself it sounds like u need to have the tires checked & balanced.

In a 1999 toyota tacoma sr5 prerunner what can

Usually the key is either worn, but usually the steering is locked. To unlock the steering, muscle the steering one direction while turning the key with the other hand. Your other concern may be related to the first. For the shifter to be able to shift. The shift lock has to be activated. The way this happens is when the ignition is on and the brake is depressed or if the shift lock override button is depressed and shifted at the same time. This button is usually under a cover at the base od the shifter if a floor shifter. Hope this helps,
