Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner
I've checked the U-joints in the drive line and they seem ok. A friend who is really good with cars says it could be my transmission. It also seems to go into Drive and Reverse with a klinking sound, but nothing while driving Any help here would be great!!!
If the vibration goes away when you let off the gas, it's definitely a ujoint. Best check them again. I see this is an old post. Maybe you have it fixed by now.

First check your transmission fluid level improper fluid level is the number one cause of trans failure, you need to check it with the vehicle warmed up, on flat ground, i accidently checked mine while it was tilted in my driveway and i got a false reading on the dipstick. The fluid should have a reddish color too it, if it is light brown, its time to get it serviced, if it is dark brown or black and you can feel gritty particles while rubbin it between your fingers, your transmission is toast.
