    Just got a 03 Tacoma TRD V6 Auto tranny .Started truck yesterday and only let it warm up for mabey 30 seconds or so before i hit the street and i noticed that it wouldn't shift to third gear at first.After the second stop sign it seemed to shift great so i am wondering if i need to let warm up alittle longer??I don't know the quirks yet so i hope this is normal.Oh Ya the truck has 113000 thou on the odo.Tranny filter mabey??Anybody else have any issues i need to know? :confused: Thanks

    Was a PreRunner, now it isn't
    just take it easy until the truck starts shifting normally is all you need to do.

    My 03 does the same thing, nothing to worry about. Once its warm itll be fine, just take it easy till its warm like previously posted.
