Please Help - Transmission issues or is it just me???

I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab, 4.0L, Automatic transmission. The last few months (it's seem to have gotten worse as well) I have noticed that when the gas engages and disengages the truck makes a noise and seems to jump some. Is this the transmission? If so, what type of warranty does this year/model have and etc, or what else could it be? Should I get a the transmission fluid drianed or?

Here is a thread about the early 2nd gen trucks having a weak motor mount connection to the frame. The frame would eventually rip/collapse.

  1. The truck has just under 87,000 miles.
  2. It does shake but I am planning on tomorrow getting my tires balanced and rotated with an oil change. Should I have them check the drive shaft/u-joint while they are doing the oil change and should I take it to the local Toyota dealer for this or?
  3. How much do you think it costs to change out the u-joints?
Thanks again in advance for your help!

Definitely have them look.
Shouldn't be more than an hour's labor to drop the shaft and press out a joint, $15 for a joint so...............$300.00
