Did a search and could not find a theread...I am not sure if this has been discussed before....but for those of you w/ 5spd automatics. Do you keep your gear shifter in 5th or 4th while driving in city usually any speeds below 45mph? I have had my tacoma for about a month now and have found the tranny searching for gears while driving in city in 5th gear. Hope this makes sense...As you can see I am pretty much a newbie.:shrug:

They should be designed for you to put it in drive and go, with no problems. The only time searching for gears might otherwise happen is if you are driving uphill or something. I've never experienced the situation you are describing with any automatic overdrive transmission. How's your driving style? If you are in 5th and you push the gas pedal down some, it may downshift into 4th. Is that maybe what you're experiencing?
