Question about 2003 Toyota Tundra
Haven't tryed anything yet just purchased pickup
I would like to say the transmission has failed internally
But I can not prove that, base just on my experience,
even as a former trans shop owner
Doesn't sound too good though
Most people never change the fluid every 2 to 3 years
& by the time the trans is 10 years old & not many make
that ,they are ruined
If it is a standard you need to tell us
No more to add -I think it's done & that is why it was sold
You can try a trans shop, but I know they will pitch a rebuild,
even if not necessary, just to stay in business
The other thought would be to remove the valve body &
clean it (there should be video on that) I wouldn't let anyone
do it or pay for that
That issue can happen in cold weather when the aluminum
gets smaller until warm
I would check for codes-need professional tools for that
Clean the valve body
New fluid-the correct fluid-no way to know it it ever had the proper
fluid in it
Add one bottle of red lubgard ,no other product

Usually burnt and discolored ATF mean pump or torque converter not doing there job or bands and clutches are worn. Shift solinoid or a pressure problem is the problem with 2nd and 3rd gear, Take it to a transmission shop and have them look it over but like I said earlierdiscolored ATF could mean a rebuild.

Just curious, what the condition of the transmission fluid when you toook it out ....... was it a cherry red color, smelling sweet, or a brown/blackish red color smelling burnt ????
