    FYI Gentlemen/Ladies,

    So I wanted to put this up there if someone is having this issue. I have a new to me 2006 Toyota Tundra Double cab SR5 LSD 2WD with 322k miles on it. It has the no dipswitch tranny the A750E. I got it recently and while it drove great I always had an issue that I thought was because of a drive shaft or differential problem. Its not read along. BTW before this I did not do a Transmission fluid change

    Basically when I come to a sudden or somewhat quick stop (as opposed to gradual stop) I used to get a thud/clunk/thunk sound. It also follows sometimes with a smaller nudge that I felt was odd to come from the drive shaft or differential. But thinking nothing major I drove it along.

    Until one day I noticed that my Transmission is not shifting as it should. Where I was not getting to much response from the Tranny/engine at around 1.8-2k RMP. When I press the accelerator it would not move the RPM's much and suddenly go to 3k when what I believe is the overdrive kicking in. Well this is where I got worried. Is my Transmission slipping? I thought.

    Well doing some quick searches I found that it may have been cause by low transmission fluid. I am sure the transmission fluid on this 322k truck was not changed in at least 150k. So thats what I did. Fill the transmission fluid. BTW I should have done this before trans refill but I hooked up torque pro after the fill and got a warning CEL - P2714 = Pressure control solenoid D performance or Stuck off.

    After doing this the thud is gone...even in sudden braking or quick stop gives i feel no thud or the smaller nudge. The truck drives a lot better..obviously. So I cleared the warning CEL and It hasn't come back up. So I believe this was the issue. So check your transmission fluids.. and ensure its topped up.

    BTW I tried using the FSM Transmission fluid guide but I could not get the Transmission in test mode by shorting the 4-13 OBD pins i.e. between 115 F < 130F (deg). Although I drove it around 30+ miles and kept it parked for 40 min. So I feel it will be in this temp range.

    Wow than you for making this thread. Mine has also been giving a small clunk upon sudden stops. I have been tearing my hair out making sure everything is tight! I replaced my carrier bearing thinking that was the clunking and have done several various bushing without luck. I will need to check the tranny fluid and add some and see if that stops it like it did for you.
