Determined to get it right.

I got my truck back from the dealer the other day after having the tranny flushed and changing the frt & rear diff fluid. I also r & r the carrier bearing. All of this being done to fix and protect the tranny from what seems to be a periodic hard shift. The shifting issue has subsided a bit but it is still there, along with a new vibration which I can only assume is the driveline. (ie the carrier bearing) My question is this, do the 1/4 inch shims under the carrier bearing help w/ the vibration? Also, should I pull the tranny pan and clean the filter? Any other help would be great. sorry bout the novel.......

Sorry, just one of many members here who have recently fallen in love with it. I'm not sure if it would be the best at adressing your issue, but it cleared up my already clear idle, and just made my engine run cleaner. It is a petroleum based engine cleaner (not sure if that is the best term) but it cleans the HELL out of your engine and pretty much anything else. You feed it into your break booster line and my truck smoked pure white for about 2-3 minutes. Might be worth a try, worst case is it cleans up your engine. I remember someone recconmending a product to clear up shifting so I will try and dig it up

If they flushed the tranny, they would have pulled the pan and replaced the filter. I worked at a sketchy tranny place and we would never not pull the pan and put a new filter in. I'm sure the dealer would have replaced it.

has the truck been beaten or towed alot? it may be something internal.

I think I got a flush without pulling the tranny pan. Is that possible?

Did they check or have you checked your u-joints to make sure there are no problems with them. It might not hurt to pull the pan for piece of mind but you might not find much Toyota uses a wire mesh filter I don't normally see a large amount of debris in the filter at 120000 miles unless it has a failure.

I bought the truck about a week ago and all was well. There is some slight body dings but overall the truck looked in good shape. It doesnt appear to have ever had a tow package installed. It did look as though someone put a ball hitch on the bumper mount at one time. That doesnt worry me all that much.

Here is another question. My rear differential rotates slightly when i try to move the truck while in park. The aft driveline has a slip joint of some sort that allows the driveline to stretch and contract. Is there a spec for how much movement is allowed?
