    I bought my 06 tacoma with 159k miles and raw previous owner didn't service the tranny. I drove it to 175kish miles and i started to get a shutter between 35 and 40mph. Once i got it flushed completely with the transmission machine, it went away. moral of the story, don't wait till you have shifting problems to service your tranny. Id recommend doing that soon with that many miles if it hasn't been done already.

    Dude that is one nasty cabin filter, I recently bought a used 2012 sport with 155k and my cab filter was near as bad. I next ordered spark plugs, original plugs were still in there, 3 ngk 3 Denso, needless to say they well past there prime! Next was a new serpentine belt, also original, and was a challenge for my 68 year old ass to change.Air, oil and filter, lube drive shaft zerks (5). Gotta keep going I guess. Live and learn! Good luck!
