My transmission has been acting up recently, and I'd like to get some feedback on the Tundra transmission problems. For people who have had to replace their transmission due to failure, what have been the symptoms leading up to replacement? My Tundra was purchased in July of 1999 and currently has almost 60K miles. Recently when I move the shift lever to "D", the transmission has been reluctant to go into gear unless I push a little on the gas pedal after selecting "D". This only happens when the engine/trans is cold (when it warms up there is no noticeable problem), and only in "D", not in "R". I drain and refill the trans at every oil change. The pan has never been dropped, so the screen and magnets have never been cleaned. I'm thinking of taking it to a mechanic friend and having him drop the pan, clean the screen and magnets (inspecting the magnet particles), then reassembling and flushing the transmission with his BG flush machine. Some websites state that Toyota has a problem with Tundra transmissions, others state that the Tundra is relatively trouble free in the drive-line (with the obvious exception of the rear axle seals -- mine started leaking shortly after the warranty expired). Give me some feedback with your thoughts.
