    ok i have another problem with my tacoma

    it started about 2 or 3 weeks ago...when i shift into drive (automatic transmission) i hear a loud bang about half the time

    could it be the u joints? i really just dont know

    first thing i did was check the transmission fluid even though im praying its not a transmission problem and its fine....any ideas?

    2000 tacoma SR5 2.7 liter AT 120,000 miles

    thanks in advance

    Check the U joints. Crawl under the truck, grabe the drive shaft, and try and move it, and feel for play.

    my old 4runner did that when the ujoints were going out..They made more of a clink noise thou.. Definately check the u joints, and grease the slip joint while your down there

    Check your U joints and also check your transmission mount.
