Smile Newbie with transmission question

Hi all
I am new to Tacoma Forum. Hello to all.
I have a 2005 Tacoma 4x4 SR5 TRD off road. 75k mile, never haul or heavy off-roading.
Recently, I noticed that when I step on the acceleration pedal, there is a brief slippage before the engine engages. Spoke to a couple dudes and they all said it's the transmission.
what should I do
thanks in advance
Tac5

I've had manuals for a long time now but I would start with simple things first. Fluid level and quality. Does it look dirty or have a gray appearance or anything. Replace fluid and filter. They have filters right ?
Transmission shop or Toyota service if those don't help.

I'm not a mechanic and haven't had an automatic trans in years and years so I might wrong completely.

The Automatics are "sealed systems", no dipstick. The process to check fluid level is tedious and requires getting the trans to a specific Temp and then pulling a check plug on the pan. There are threads on here about it. Just a heads up to OP.

How does it feel goin up hills? And when you are going up hills try steppin on the gas to get it to shift and see what it does. This should cause it to shift pretty hard and hear a clunk. I know from experience, my 2009 went at 63,000 miles....completely shot....my fault....were not going there. Also, have the fluids checked and possibly refilled, a refill should help tremendously if it is the transmission.

LowerBost, that's what it seems to be. Same symptoms when i went uphill.
Thanks for all the advice,
I will check out the fluid level and quality. I take it to toyota to have them take a peek, too

Hello all,
Want to update everyone about the issue. It turns out to be the Drive shaft that caused issue.

one more question, where can I get a free copy of the manual for 2nd gen Tacoma.
There was a site that has it, but was removed
thanks
Tac2005
