  1. Tacoma 3rd Generation (2016+)
    Just upgraded from 2019 Tacoma TRD Sport to 2021 Tacoma TRD PRO. Love the looks of the PRO and few extra gadgets. My issues, the Sport had a jamming stereo, bass booming! The PRO has zero with this supposed big JBL system. Also the fuel mileage is about 3-4mpg lower. I commute on the highway and...
  2. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hey guys, just joined this forum since I bought a great used Camry with 48k miles. So far the car looks and drives amazing except for this one issue I’ve noticed after having it for 3 days. Maybe it’s just I’m not used to Japenese cars but their seems to be a hard downward shift issue. When...
  3. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I've tried searching multiple forums but haven't had much luck finding the specific issue I'm experiencing. I have a 2005 Corolla CE AT and one day the transmission stopped shifting out of first when in D. I spoke to a mechanic friend of mine who suggested putting it in "2" to see if it will...
  4. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    I have a young 2012 camry LE with 61800 miles. I just bought it last week. I noticed that when I drive it I feel all the gears shift from 1-2-3-4-5 (if it shifts into 6th i dont feel it , idk). This is under any kind of acceleration, I can feel shifting and its not hard or harsh but its...
  5. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    so, i've got an 05 corolla, auto trans, that i've been having some weird issues with recently. basically, when the car shifts from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd, there's a bit of a jump to the shift. not super hard, just not something that the car has done in the past. it doesn't happen all of the...

  7. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    1995 5SFE Automatic. 213K miles. Need your help diagnosing this issue. (searched the forums but couldn't find a similar issue) New Tires and alignment done. Prior to and after the new tires and alignment, this vehicle upon medium to heavy acceleration from a standstill, would pull a bit to...
  8. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Has anyone seen any considerable differences in performance or fuel economy when using sequential shifting compared to automatic? Thanks again Toyota Nation,
  9. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    I have an Automatic 2002 Toyota Tacoma 2WD. I have been driving this truck for years, its my baby. But it started having problems about two years ago. This started happening in January 2010. My truck doesn't get above 20-25mph until it is heated up. I will try driving it and the RPM's are moving...
  10. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2005 corolla s with auto trans and 104,000 miles on it. Every once in a while when I shift into park, reverse, or drive, the engine will stall. It doesn't do this every time I drive it, usually it is a random event. Also, I only noticed it when the engine is warm. Any ideas or...
  11. Previa Forum
    Just happen to come across a local craigslist ad for a 1992 Previa All-Trac. The seller says the van won't shift from reverse to drive. It apparently has only 200k miles, which is nothing for a Previa. That is why I am surprised that the trans would be acting up on it. It just has to be...
  12. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Hi there! I have a 1992 Toyota Paseo manual 5-speed that is sticking a bit in various gears. We've tried it even when the car's off and it's still having difficulty, so it doesn't seem to be related to the clutch. It also doesn't do it all the time; it almost seems like it does it right after...
  13. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I have a 2011 Corolla LE with the automatic transmission. When traveling at a constant highway speed (i.e. 60 mph), the tachometer will start jumping around. It will jump up than down buy anywhere from 200 rpm to 1000 rpm. It only lasts a few seconds then returns to normal. The dealer is saying...
  14. Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    I bought my 2006 2WD 2.7 5 speed manual Tacoma new in June of 2006. For the past 3 winters I have had difficulties shifting while the truck was cold for the first 10 km of my trips. In North Western Ontario in winter that is about as far as I usually travel. At the beginning of the...
  15. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hey Thanks for looking at this. I have an 89 camry witht he 2.0 in it. It has been running great with 184,00 on it until recently. Not saying that this could cause any sor of issue but I am just stating what I have done to it. I put a new air filter, adnd some lucas fuel treatment in it. Since...
  16. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    My 93 Camry XLE V6 lurches forward too quickly when I shift to drive - I have to make sure I brake hard while shifting into drive so I don't lose control exiting my garage. Seems to have enough fluid in it - I just bought it in December so I don't know the maintenance history for the...
  17. Previa Forum
    1996 Toyota Previa with approx. 150K miles. It runs well for the most part, however when I am on the freeway, and around 50-60mph, I will get a periodic THUNK when accelerating on slight inclines... sometimes even on level surfaces / lanes. It can be pretty loud, sounding something like I just...
  18. Camry & Solara Lounge
    Background: Automatics are awesome. While the older automatics do a phenomenal job matching the shift pattern to the powerband when accelerating. You can find yourself wishing for a different gear at part throttle. Say flying through the entry of afew corners. Low does fine for first gear. 2 can...
  19. Camry & Solara Lounge
    Background: We all know that the Automatic Transmissions in the Camry/ES 300 (both of the v6 4-speed automatics 2vz-fe & 3vz-fe A540E, 1mz-fe A541E are mechanically the same) are setup for comfort. The bad news is that they're slow shifting. The good news is that they don't hunt for gears under...
