    When you get to reverse, do you make the wah wah wah reverse gear noise?

    I did it because I hated how the automatic transmission searched for gears when I did the test drive.

    and everything I could read and find out said that the manual transmission was pretty much bulletproof.

    and now when I want to pass someone on a 2 Lane Highway that’s driving 52 miles an hour in a 55, I just shift into third gear hammer on the gas and I accelerate all the way to 85 miles an hour In a heartbeat.

    The whole downshifting thing has been eye opening for me. I came from a bunch of manuals with Heeps of torque. The other day I dropped into 4th and sped past a bunch of cars on “the grade”. Including a 3rd gen taco. I’m just hoping that guy was like what? How?

    :notsure:


    Is that like The Anarchists Cookbook? :poking:


    I think it has been proven in many instances that the crims struggle with ATs also. :cookiemonster:


    Anybody got a GIF that I could borrow?

    I’ve cooked professionally, for many years. Back before everyone just googled recipes. So I have a few cookbooks, and that one is stuck in the middle of them. My own little teehee, it’s funny because…

    Thanks everyone. Now I will know what to do instead of panic grind slamming into first. :anonymous:

    And I will try a fluid change. It rarely happens, but early on it would just resist going into first a little,,,,now a couple times it down right denies me,,,,so rude :)

    I used the Motorcraft XT-M5-QS, it meets Toyota specifications. I had no problems with the factory fill but the new fluid was a noticeable improvement in an already nice shifting transmission.

    Rock Auto had the best price.

    I prefer driving to just steering I guess. There are only two trucks left that offer a manual...the Taco and the wildly overpriced Jeep Gladiator. I found my way to Toyota because they offer a manual. As others have said....they are not long for this world. I'll get one while I can. Just wish it was available with a long bed.

    Maybe someday an electric car company will deliver us a third pedal and a simulated H pattern shifter. With all the development of racing sims I doubt it would be far off from the real thing.

    Oh dear Lord I hope you are wrong. The last time I checked, and it's been a few years, it was
    The Tacoma, Jeep Gladiator, Nissan, and Dodge. Now you say it's down to just two manufacturers ? We're in trouble boys.....

    .

    Yep. That's what RWD59565 said too. And he thinks there won't be a manuel transmission for the 4th Gen. I just can't believe this.....

    one of my daughters’ soccer coach is driving a dodge with Cummins and a manual. Something to drool over, it’s just too big though.

    I have to agree with you again on this one Benny. When I bought my very first Toyota pickup truck (Tacoma after 1995), I didn't downgrade.... I down sized. I would love a big ass Dodge with an MT, but it's just not practical for my needs and won't fit in my garage. Ha ha ha.
