Hello all,
I have a 07 with what seems to be a common shudder in the auto trans. I haven’t noticed anyone mention that theirs doesn’t go into overdrive also. I remedy the issue by putting into neutral while at speed, shut off the engine, roll a eighth mile or so before restarting and then shifting back into drive.

I gather that I need a new trans. The truck has an unknown history. I am handy and have a Toyota mechanic as a friend. Where can I find a good transmission to do a swap at home? Any suggestions?

That is my next step, but if a trans swap is inevitable I was trying to finances lined up so I can keep her rolling. How often does a fluid change actually fix the issue?
