2000 sr5 TRD 4wd 1-2 shift noise, or starter noise???
Lately my truck is making a disturbing noise. Sometimes on the shift from 1 to 2, when going very slow. It makes a rubbing or shuddering noise. As first gear accelerates and it starts to shif to 2nd, it will make a noise that sounds and feels like a plastic fenderwell dragging on a tire. It has only done it a couple times. I managed to recreate the noise by sitting idling for a few minutes then pulling out very slowly and letting the 1-2 shift happen very slowly.
There is no loss of driveability as far as I can tell. Truck has 197000 miles. Im 3rd owner, and not informed of the service on this truck. It leaks NOTHING. Starts and runs great. 4wd works fine.
Searching has given several possible issues. Torque converter shudder, LSD slipping, Slip yoke problem, Trans mount vibration, old trans fluid, old diff fluid.
So, to me it feels like a slipping as the trans goes from 1 to 2. Reason being it seems to happen as 1st gear revs out and 2nd gear is coming in. Dosent happen in other gears.
Anyway,,, is there a common solution?
