Bought my 2010 Tacoma Double Cab TRD Off-Road in early June of this year. Absolutely love it, but I have a few question regarding some problems that I am having with it.
The engine seems to have a bit of a knock to it. It just doesn't sound smooth. Seems to be more pronounced when the engine is under load (ie: Doesn't exhibit problem when revving in Neutral). (Edit: This may be the Tacoma Engine Tick everyone talks about)
The transmission forgets to shift sometime. Most of the time it is going downhill, but after accelerating it just doesn't shift. I'm just stuck in whatever gear it happens to be in until it decides to shift (Typically around the 3000RPM range)
There is a rattling/ringing/jingling coming from somewhere on the under carriage. Occurs at all times but is most noticeable when coasting at low speeds.
The vent fan has started squeaking when running.
Additionally, I got the notice that my truck was eligible for that gas pedal override. I didn't end up getting it yet, but was wondering if there was any point in doing it.
Thanks so much!
