Hey guys, you might think I'm on the wrong forum, but I want to check with ya'll.
I'll start by saying, I drive an '07 Tundra, but am concerned about the transmission. It clunks going into overdrive and will have a muted clunk going into drive. I also drive a '98 Expedition with 140K miles. It does the same thing, with a little bit more pronounced feeling in the seat, so I'm not too worried about my Expedition. It's just natural for that. I also find that it will provide engine braking without me touching the brakes while coasting or going downhill. I can tell by listening to the engine's rpms rise ever so slightly. Then, when I do want the engine braking (touching the brakes for a second to hold speed going downhill), it'll clunk going back into gear once I give it some gas. I am worried about the Tundra and find it unacceptable on a truck that is new, let alone how much it cost.
So my question posed to you all is, do you experience a clunk in your transmission going into overdrive and such? Please post your miles on the car as well. Mine has just over 2600 miles.
Also, do you guys think that it's something I should get serviced at my next oil change, or just wait until it gets worse. After all, there are quite a few transmissions that have blown.
I posted a thread on there earlier tonight, and surprisingly no reply yet. I think I'm having a few of the symptoms that the guys that had their tranny go were having before. Some guy is already starting to lose his second transmission!
I wish I woulda bought a Ford.
Oh well, here's the link to my thread I posted if you're interested.
On that Tundra forum where I started a thread, they mostly are saying that it's a normal characteristic of the transmission. Honestly, I beg to differ. One of the guys said to take it in. I will have them check it at the next oil change.
LOL... sorry, I had to rub that one in. This is an F150 board after all
I read the entire thread, and I'd still take it in and complain. See what they have to say about it at least, if in your opinion it's that noticeable.
Haha, I'm a Ford guy through and through so it doesn't bother me in the least. I'm still sorta bitter about getting a Tundra, but it's not that bad of a truck. I mean, it will beat just about every car I pull up next to, including my buddy's crotch rocket (that was a fluke).
I've already had it in for the paint, which sucks on this truck, partially because it's black and I can see every small scratch.
We're already having problems with our '07 Sport Trac as well. It'll clunk going into first gear when coming to a stop and it feels like you're getting rear ended! Unfortunately, we couldn't leave it with them the two days they needed (to get it into the shop) to have them DIAGNOSE the problem. They acknowledge there is something there though. Then, it has a bit of a piston slap already, which kinda concerns me.
So, I'll go ahead and get my truck into the shop here at my next oil change in another few weeks or so.
