    Default I pulled the battery cable to reset the computer now that the truck is broken in and

    It seems to have taken care of the shifting and some of the drivetrain vibration issues (The tires are the other culprit).

    The shift from 1st to 2nd is much better (less harsh and more in tune with the engine timing) same with 4th to 5th. (I have griped about this in my previous board posts)

    During braking the downshifting seems to be more in tune with the engine and has less vibration (another gripe).

    It seems to be more in tune with how I drive now. I drove it easy during break in.

    Am I off of my rocker here?

    Shouldn't it have re-learned my driving style after break in?

    Anyone have info on these ecu's and how they work nowadays in great detail?

    On a side note, check out this link. I know they had this for race cars but not for the common car buff. You can hook up this device to your car dignostics port and by using bluetooth you can have your laptop or PDA nearby gathering live information from your car.

    Do you need to be under the hood messing with a sensor while reading the live data from your PDA while the diag tools are hooked up to the diagnostics port inside the car? Need to turn the fuel pump on and off while at the back of the car to verify it works? No problem..

    I know in my Jeep to totaly wipe out the "learned" memory you had to pull the battery cables off. While off you touch the positive cable to a ground for a full minute. This seemed to dicharge the system. Not sure on the Tacoma though. Again I stress that you do this after disconnecting the battery totally.

    With as rough as the truck was when it first started, I am positive the ECU memory was cleared.

    You press the button (hold it) until the display changes. Then drive in a circle until the display changes again...

    After reading this I thought I`d try it, my truck seemed a little sluggish (if that`s possible?) after I have done a few mods especially after adding Mobile 1 and an engine treatment on the last oil change.I took both cables off and held the pos. to ground and everything reset.
    Maybe I`m crazy but it is back to its kick butt self
    Thanks I love you guys
    The list has gotten way too long
