Hello,

I bought my 2016 Tacoma new about six months ago and ever since day one I have had an issue with the RPMs surging when I put the clutch in to change gears or even just coast. There is no pattern its just random. I can be going slow, fast, and even in reverse when it happens.

The dealership has looked at it twice and say it is the way it was made and there is nothing they can/will do. I don't expect them to acknowledge any issue for obvious reasons but its terribly frustrating. I am not driving it any differently than the other manual trucks I have owned all my life.

Does anyone else know of or heard of anyone else having this issue?

Have you contacted Toyota Care yet. Since the dealer can't/won't acknowledge a problem. I would see what they have to say

RPMs will rise when you push in the clutch to shift. Completely normal. It was like that on the 2nd gen trucks too. Something to do with emissions.

And welcome to TN. I moved your thread into the 3rd gen Tacoma forum. :thumbsup:

Not sure where OP is located and exactly the RPM issues experienced.

I purchased a 17 Tacoma recently with the 2.7 and 5spd. The other day while exiting the interstate, throwing it in neutral and releasing the clutch it decided to run at 3200 rpm for a few seconds, then 2200 rpm for a few seconds and wouldn't idle until I stopped.

It also has a slightly rough idle and under 2200 rpm I can experience bucking, hesitation, and surging if driving at a steady rate, slightly backing off and then accelerating. It's worse when the temp needle is about 3/4 fully warmed up, a little better when fully warmed up and doesn't appear to do it yet when cold. Seems like it's running lean. The dealer didn't know what to do with it so they have had the regional field engineer look at it and I'm waiting for a report.

Curious if others are experiencing the same.

Intake leak?

I had a neon many years back that exhibited the same behavior from a pinhole in the intake hose (how it was found I do not know) that was fixed with a piece of duct tape.
