Most of the above complaints are based on feel and personal perception. Finding a manual to test drive has been difficult in my area so my question is. This transmission unit includes a transmission case, valve body, tail shaft and housing, torque converter automatic only , and all internal lubricated parts. The rev-hang causes a bit of a clunking noise from the clutch when you depress it too fast. While the drive and feel of the gearbox is not at all like a sports car, as a truck transmission, it feels great. This means that chances are I want to like the transmission.
This results in the operation having to be extra-precise in order to avoid jerky shifts or gear-mesh noise from not enough torque due to low-revs. And the truck never goes off road. There is not a lot of play in neutral either. An oil with a higher viscosity one with a higher value may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions. The Drive The 6-speed in the Taco is not a car transmission. Later Intervals At 48 months or 40,000 miles, replace the cabin air filter. If you are one of these people, then you will want to conduct a quick daily inspection on any day that you take your Tacoma off-road.
An oil with a higher viscosity one with a higher value may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions. For one, I depress the clutch much more slowly in such situation. Contact your Toyota dealer about the weight of accessory parts. Autos are more efficient than sticks now that they have lock-up converters, and as a result most automakers are using automatics now to produce many of their most fuel efficient models. Similar to the way you simultaneously depress the gas and let go of the clutch when setting off, but the inverse of that.
Any extra insight would be helpful, thanks. In other words, in all likelihood Toyota has been improving the box through the years. Once you get used to the feel of the shifter, it becomes second nature and rowing through gears becomes intuitive and fun. Once your Tacoma reaches 72 months or 60,000 miles, also replace the spark plugs, depending on your engine. I'm confused about something though.
This is the primary identification number for your Toyota. I just did my front and rear diff including the transfer case and used the amsoil gl-5 75-90w and what a difference when u let off the gas the truck rolls a lot farther lol I changed it around 16000 and the stock fluids had a lot metal shavings which talking to Toyota that is normal. No issues using those oils. The shifting is positive and the harmony created between the engine, transmission and clutch operation is perfectly fine by me. Coming from a 97 4runner with a 5speed I figured the 6speed was a no brainier. Your all set Real quick question I have the auto trans and the auto transfer case if you get the manual transmission does it come with a manual transfer case? The technicians at in Boerne, Texas, can also help you remember when your Tacoma is due for scheduled maintenance.
Needless to say, I researched this truck for nearly 3 years before I bought it. If replacement is necessary, contact your Toyota dealer. I'm not to happy with the auto transfer case it has no neutral and the electronic case kinda scares me for the future if any problems arise I heard the actuator is really expensive. In fact, my wife has been driving the truck even more than I have. So note that in your own assessment.
Contact your Toyota dealer about the weight of accessory parts. Danny is happy he purchased the truck, and happy he choose the 6-speed. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. If so we invite you to join TacomaForum. It is used in registering the ownership of your vehicle.

The 6-speed manual is in fact a good transmission, at least from the point of view of a hardcore stick-shift-only driver like myself. Most were put in the Sport editions I believe.

Every 12 and 18 Months Remember that all the maintenance tasks mentioned above must be repeated at the 6-month or 5,000-mile intervals, so you will perform them again at 12 months or 10,000 miles. I admit, I was a little worried about buying the 6-speed manual V6 Toyota Tacoma after reading about all the conflicting stories on the Tacoma forums. Everyone seems to love the 5-speed in the I4 model, so no point in debating that one. The Warranty and Maintenance Guide that came with your Tacoma has a handy checklist for all maintenance intervals to keep you on track.
Though not quite as terrible, the 5-speed manual is also pretty far from the 4th gear ratio of the automatic. This is most annoying when you immediately depress the clutch after pulling off in first to disengage the transmission to coast thru a corner in a parking lot for example.
