Manual Transmission Question

Hey guys!

Let me first off say this is an excelent site, lots of great information and hard work!

My Question is, I have a 06 with the 6-speed manual transmission, I usually shift around 2500 rpm, but when accelerating up a small hill near my home if I shift any less rpm from 1st gear to 2nd gear the transmission makes an aweful growleing noise under light acceleration, as for my truck it only has 90,000 kms on it. Now when asking the service tech, he states its a less refined transmission, its supposed to be clunky and noisy. Does anyone else have a tacoma that sounds like a diesel ford? or is it just me?

Thanks again

When you're going up hills, especially steep ones, try shifting at higher RPM, upwards of 2800. It sounds to me like you're bogging the engine going uphill and shifting low.

To conserve fuel, I try and keep my shifts around 1700-2000 RPM. I'm in Kitchener though... VERRRRRY flat here! Langley has a lot more hills, and mountains as far as I can remember.

i usually shift between 2 and 2.5k for economy (typically get 18mpg mixed city and highway). but going up hills i generally shift ~3k to keep the power.
