    Default 2006 Tundra 4.7 More Tranny issues

    2006 tundra 4.7l 4x2 with Tow Package, having more issues. Haven't been driving truck much because initially it had a weird intermittent problem where if you stopped abruptly (lets say the situation is, stopping hard enough from 30-0 to have the ABS kick in) it would lag to shift from 2nd-3rd and wouldn't have full power till it revved up to about 4200rpm then it would regain power.. 4th-5th all power there. It hasn't done it ever since, I checked connectors on tranny and made sure they weren't loose. Now at idle, when at a stop light in Drive it's making a grinding noise, only on 1st and when it upshifts its fine. There's loss of power of any kind in 1st, no vibration throughout the Rpms if I hold it on 1st/L gear, just that weird sound when braking at a stoplight? Can it be a sign of the torque converter going out? Or clutches in the Tranny going out? These problems started coming up about 5k miles after Transmission Flush was done.

    Thanks guys!

    Have you checked your fluid level? With no dipstick you have to remove the plug and stick your finger in to see if it is at the proper level.

    What type / brand of transmission fluid did you put in the tranny? What type of flush did you do? Did you use chemicals to flush the tranny? I would start by checking the fluid level first. This needs to be done with the tranny at a certain temp with the engine running. Hopefully you have used the proper type of fluid and have the correct amount of fluid in the tranny. Do a search and there is a PDF that shows how to check the fluid level.

    Toyota Dealership did the service for me so I have no idea what they did to it.

    I took a quick video of what it sounds like, you can barely here it though

    Hey geordybass, that's a weird one. Does it make the same noise in reverse? I'm thinking if it is related to the torque converter, it should make the same noise in reverse as well.

    When I bought tranny fluid for my 05 DC, a local Toyota dealership told me they used Valvoline tranny fluid. It maybe the same but I was not taking a chance. I used Toyota WS fluid. First, I would still check the fluid level as specified in the Toyota FSM. When I replaced the tranny in my 05 DC, the tranny started to make a swirling type sound until I brought the tranny to normal operating temperature and filled it with the correct amount of fluid. It sounded as if the sound was coming from the torque converter. Since the dealer did the flush, bring it back to them and explain the issues started after the tranny flush. Worth a shot.

    It does make it in reverse, I was about to reply and took it around the block and yeah it makes the same humming noise in reverse and forward if I'm idling with my foot on the brake

    Cool sounds like I'm gonna ask, I did it a year ago, but this truck hasn't been driven much at all, 5k miles since the flush was done so I'll ask the dude thanks!

    im going with tundrunk on this one and saying it has something to do with the TQ converter since it does it forward or reverse. hopefully the dealership can figure it out for you

    I had problems with my 05 transmission and brought it to the dealer. The dealer wanted to sell me a 3K new transmission. I brought it to a local transmission shop (with excellent references) and they fixed it for $400.00. If the dealer does nothing for you I would go to a shop that only deals with transmissions and has experience with these transmissions. Most dealers only replace transmissions. In my opinion they are not experts at fixing them! When you have a health problem that is specific to a specialist, you go to the specialist that only deals with that problem. I would do the same with my truck.

    Good call! I would NEVER take my vehicle back to them again for service for some punk-ass rookie statement like that coming from a stealership.

    What was the issue? I can get a nice used transmission for about that price, so just trying to see if anyone ha had that type of grinding sound at idle. Sounds like Torque converter but I guess I'll have to take her apart lol
