HARD SHIFT FROM YOUR 2000 Tacoma... Anyone who has this "problem" (myself included) can & should relax. My 2000 TRD does the same thing but its a good thing, there is nothing better than a good crisp shift change between gears in an automatic tranny & unless its shifting hard enough to snap "U" joints, trust me everything is good, its when a automatic just mushes into one gear shift to another thats when you need to be concerned because when this is happening excessive wear on the internal clutches & heat is being generated and probably heading for a break down (on your favorite hill perhaps )
