2008 Tachoma 2wd 4cyl automatic 42000mi
Engine shudders when coming to a stop and 35-40mph with light acceleration.
This TSB addresses the problem TSB 0096-09. They reprogram the ECM to newer software. The dealer was very familiar with the problem, as many had the same issue. They did it under warrantee,even though I was over the coverage period a few months. After I drive it for a while, I will know if it fixed it. For now, this looks like the fix for this annoying problem. I was afraid the torque converter was failing. It drives fine otherwise and no MIL light.

I hope that is the fix. And, a 2008 with only 42,000 miles? Wow. But not as good as my mom's '78 Chevy Malibu Classic, that she bought new in December, 1977. We sold it after she passed away in 2012, and it had only 73,000 miles in 34-1/2 years.
