    My 2011 5.7 Tundra upshifts and downshifts kinda hard when the tranny is cold but after it warms up it is fine. I have 90,000 miles and I am the second owner. I have never owned a Tundra before and I am curious if that is normal?

    Doesn't sound normal. I could possibly see some shift issues if were -50 F degrees and engine/tranny not warmed up yet. Probably should have the dealer check it out. Don't go to AAMCO. Our lab supervisor almost bought a new tranny for his wife's GMC Terrain. It was making a "noise". Said no. Wanted a second opinion. Power steering fluid was low. How stupid is that?


    Need to clarify: The GMC dealer (Suss) said tranny was bad and wouldn't be covered under warranty.Wanted about $4K to fix it. AAMCO found the power steering fluid "problem". Sorry AAMCO.

    I know there's a thread on this somewhere, but I'm being lazy. I think it's around this mileage that it calls for a fluid change.
