Toyota Tacoma owners have reported 5 problems related to transmission not go into gear (under the power train category).
Transmission fails to go into gear. This is a common problem with the aisin ay6 6-speed manual transmission in the Tacoma from what I see on internet forums. A danger results in crossing an intersection, merging or many other unforeseen incidents where it is nearly impossible to get the transmission into the next gear. In my case, it is particularly difficult for the 1-2, 2-3 shifts and reverse. I have taken my truck to Toyota numerous times and in short was more or less told to "take a hike" and sometimes in a manner than was not the most pleasant means. Throwout bearing also squeaks since brand new (TSB posted?), and Toyota's only action is to replace it with another bearing that will only squeak again anyway. I do not get why I have to constantly take a truck that is barely driven in for a complaint. Something is not right, I (we) paid for a Toyota and their reputation, but this was my last purchase from Toyota ever. It seems that to get anything replaced on every vehicle affected by these profound issues, that someone must die again as with the gas pedal incidents.

I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma x-runner trim and it has had an issue with the transmission since I bought it. The transmission will not shift from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd and can easily be repeated even though Toyota tech's always state that the problem could not be duplicated even though I have done it with two techs test rides. Also, it cannot be downshifted easily. If I am merging I cannot shift into the next gear and have had a few close calls. Also, more recently I cannot shift into reverse which seems like the same forward shifting, except I am not moving. I had recently parked in a spot that had a slight incline and when it came time to back out, I could not get it into gear and kept rolling forward more and more each time till I hit the bump stop in the parking stall and damaged the underside of the front bumper and from which I had to get some help to push it backwards out of the spot.

The contact was making a left hand turn and the vehicle stopped in the middle of the road. The vehicle would not go into gear. He had the vehicle towed to the dealership. The dealership replaced the pressure plate assembly. Since the replacement of the pressure plate he was still having the same problems with the vehicle.
