    Sorry I'm asking so many questions lately..LOL Just trying to get a couple things ironed out.

    When I come to a stoplight or sign, sometimes I get a little "lurch" after coming to a complete stop. I did some googling recently and I'm seeing things relating to the slip yoke and improper lubrication. I bought this truck (07 TRD 4x4) used with low miles, so I'm guessing if it's lube related that this happened after the first owner traded it in while there were sevicing it.

    Is this accurate? The slip yoke thing. I have an appointment Thursday but I'm afraid they won't be able to recreate the problem or may not know about the yoke being an issue.

    Thanks!

    I would not worry about it. I thought the same thing when I got mine. It is normal they call it the lurch or something like that. Mine does it periodically

    It seems to be doing it less now (had it since October), but I also moved out of the city a month ago so I'm not hitting as many stops and such. It's not freaking me out or anything, but my bumper-to-bumper warranty only has 4k miles left. They're gonna charge me 45 bucks to look at it unless they find something that needs repaired under the warranty. Just dont wanna waste my time and a little bit of cash.

    anyone else have this and know anything else?

    Are you using the defroster during any of this? That will cause a 'lurch' at a stop, due to the compressor going on, and the rpms bumping up.

    Do you have an AUTOMATIC?

    If YES:
    Do some more searching..... (upper blue bar towards the right).
    Type in:
    LURCH
    Automatic lurch

    The Automatics will 'downshift' after you come to a stop. You'll feel a lurch or a bump. It's normal.

    yeah it's an auto. i've read some more on here before and that sounds a little more violent than what i'm getting. this is just a light movement. sems like a downshift would be a little more significant. i guess i could be wrong. it does kinda bump during takeoff sometimes and i always attributed that to the transmission. i know there'll always be a few more rough or loud things going on with a truck as compared to a car, but this seems i always peek at the tachometer when this happens too, and only once or twice has it actually spiked. i initally thought it might be air in the brake lines. it used to happen on my last car, but the pedal usually just went soft.

    I haven't used the AC in a while and that might have something to do with the lurch. I use defrost most of the time now, with the low blow too. I like warm feet!

    You guys think I should cancel my appointment??

    If you are using the defroster, the AC compressor cycles on and off when you do. The truck will lurch somewhat when the compressor comes on due to the bump in rpms.

    I think he's just saying a search will yield more info for additional reading. I usually search before I ask something anyway. I've been on plenty of forums and even modded one for a couple years so I'm familiar with the search nazis. I think excessive suggestion of search stifles discussion and general forum activity. I didn't take his comment that way though.

    I appreciate all the replies everyone!

    My lady says I should take it in anyway, or at least get some kind of bumper to bumper checkup before the warranty expires.
