Got a manual 3.4l 4x4 that has had a pop out in first issue since my girlfriend bought it. It'll slip out of first when not accelerating and the rpms get under 2000 or so, especially on a bumpy road, or when accelerating from a stop. Initially we tried the quick and easy fix with the lever seat. This didn't solve it. Recently, we decided to have the transmission rebuilt and clutch replaced. Same day we picked up the truck it started popping out again so we brought it back. Mechanic said it must be the shifting fork and replaced that. However this did not solve the issue either. What gives? Is this mechanic missing something or does this generation of Tacoma's not like to stay in first through the low rpm?
