    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    I have a 2005 Tacoma with a bit over 66k on it.

    Lately I've been feeling some jerkiness when letting off the brake and hitting the accelerator from a complete stop.

    I've asked several auto shops if they can change it out but they keep on saying that the Tacoma has a sealed tranny blah blah, something World Standard fluid blah blah, check at 100k....

    I knew all that already seeing as I'm a member of TW.

    Should I go ahead and get my tranny flushed and refilled? Are the symptoms my truck is feeling indicative of transmission problems?

    there are many threads with ur same type of concern. ur most likely feeling axle wrap. try lube the drive shaft.
    the trans is not a "sealed" n yes it does take a toyota specific type of fluid.
