Toyota Tundra owners have reported 7 problems related to transmission slip out of gear (under the power train category).
My check engine light has come on. As well as the lights stating the vehicle stability control and traction control systems have been disabled. The transmission will not shift out of third gear and the vsc being off is causing an unsafe driving condition due to slipping tires around corners at normal speeds. Upon checking the engine code p2714 and p0751 I have come to find out there is an internal Toyota technical service bulletin circulating their dealership service departments dating back to November 28, 2007 when this issue was first discovered. The bulletin is named tc017-07. Also upon further investigation I have found numerous posts about this code and the exact issues my vehicle suffers from on multiple Toyota Tundra message and internet chat groups. This is a very serious issue which could easily cause loss of life or property if these vehicles with this issue are suddenly prone to the vsc and transmission acting abnormally. This issue for me came up very suddenly with no prior warning as the dash lights came in while driving. I will be asking totota to fix this issue at their cost with the remedy they describe in their service bulletin. The remedy they recommend is to replace the transmission and reprogram the ecm.

Gear shift on steering wheel column became loose and it became very difficult to place truck into park. It started gradually until the play in the shifter was so bad that I could no longer put it into drive, reverse or neutral without the shifter handle hitting the windshield wiper handle and causing the windshield wipers to activate and squirt cleaner onto the windshield. I was concerned that it was going to slip out of gear or into gear causing injury or death, and it became increasingly hard to put the vehicle into park. I took it to Toyota dealer and they replaced it. I have the part (a1 shaft sub-assembly / bd376 housing, steering column) and it is defective inferior metal part broken into two pieces.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. While driving 35 mph the contact heard a popping noise near the drive line. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer who replaced the transmission bearings. The repair did not remedy the failure. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer who stated that there was nothing to repair. While driving the vehicle responded as if it were going to shift out of gear. The contact called the manufacturer and was told that there was nothing they could do if the check engine light does not come on. The contact was concerned since the vehicle could potentially break down. The failure mileage was 60,000.
2007 Tundra slipping out of gear to allow vehicle to roll.
The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that the brakes were depressed and the vehicle lunged forward abnormally. The contact also stated that while driving 45 mph and depressing the accelerator, a loud banging noise was exhibited from the engine area as the vehicle decelerated independently. On a separate occasion while the vehicle was attached to a trailer, the vehicle failed to shift out of third gear on and then failed to shift out of fourth gear later. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the manufacturer was contacted. The vehicle was not repaired and the VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 9,000 and the current mileage was 92,000.
1. From a stop, auto transmission slipped out of first gear. While trying to back up, reverse would not engage. 2. While driving, fourth gear did not engage. The check engine light came on, then it slipped out of third. As a result, I was almost rear ended due to the loss of power. 3. Vehicle was towed to dealership. According to them, the transmission failed and was replaced. Old unit not available.
While driving at various speed of 20-50 mph automatic transmission would intermittently jump out of drive into neutral. This condition almost causes\d consumer's vehicle to be involved in a rear end crash. The vehicle has been to the dealer on two separate occasions. The first time the dealer informed the consumer that nothing could be found. On the second occasion the dealer replaced the transmission.
