I have a 2006 Tacoma and is shudders at take off. Happened overnight. Changed the plugs, took off the coils and it just made it worse. Cleaned the MAF eventhough it looked ok. hooked up the OBD scanner and no fault codes. inspected the driveline just in case but no apparent damage

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. I will assume that you went and gotr genuine Toyota plugs (hopefully) and installed them. If not, go and get the real Toyota plugs form a dealership parts department. Some non-Toyota plugs work horribly in these engines. If you DO have new (and correct) plugs installed, you need to check the transmission fluid level. If yo do not have a dipstick (some do not have a dipstick), take it to a dealership service department and tell then you want the Transmission fluid level checked. If you do not have a dipstick, you cannot check this. A special tool is required and the Toyota diagnostic test box is also needed. If you have no codes, I would suspect one of the other as listed above. I am leaning more towards low transmission fluid.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.
