    Hello All,

    I have an 06 4x4 with a 6 speed. About two months ago, when I first started the truck, when I went from a dead stop to either 1st or reverse, the truck jerked as if I didn't give it enough gas and felt like it was going to stall. Finally, I decided to just give it gas and when I engaged 1st gear, everything was fine. I could shift and drive with no issues.

    The other day, I had the same issue when I started the vehicle. However, not only did it jerk until I engaged into 1st, shifting didn't feel as fluid as it's always been. It felt a little rougher to shift (sorry can't give a better description). I'm not sure what could be the issue with only 29K miles on it. :confused:

    Any thoughts?

    I had issues with my 6Spd. Worst it got was the shift handle would get thrown out of the slot in Reverse.
    Had bad shift forks-Toyota replaced the trans under warranty.

    Hah, as soon as you said "replaced the transmission", I dropped my jaw and ran straight to my truck to find the warranty. I guess I'll be giving them a call today.

    I was going to say maybe the winter weather is the culprit, but you're in Florida... You don't have winter... :)

    Up here in Edmonton, my truck jerks, jumps, and my stick-shift feels like it's embedded in a puddle of mud. Then again, when it's -30 outside, that'll happen!

    Hey, when the temperature gets below 70 it feels like winter to me :D

    I actually just went to the Toyota dealership and they said that there was a bulletin out on Tacoma models between 2005 and 2010 (and 2007 - 2010 FJs) for 6-Speeds. There's some issue with the clutch engaging. So, they're aware of it and thankfully it should be covered under the warranty... that ends this month.
