Question about 2003 Toyota Tacoma
Is this normal? I've had this problem since I first bought the truck.
The service manager told me it was normal.
Does anyone else out there experience this same problem?
The engine is supposed to idle hgh when cold, to reduce emissions. The transmission shifting that you speak of...are you talking about the final shift? The final shift does not hapen until the coolant temperature reaches 177 degrees F. This too is an emission-reduction pre-programming. In short, your Service Manager is not leading you astray; he is quite right. I tell my Taco customers the same thing. Also, this is all in the basic program of the ECU (computer); and cannot be changed. I hope that this helps you out.
