Customer Question
Son's 2008 Tundra V6...

Son's 2008 Tundra V6 has transmission shudder

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

Sealed unit, so not for quite a while

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I am taking it to a mechanic to drain the old fluid and refill. What's the best fluid for my Tundra? Is there a synthetic that would work best? has over 200k miles on it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

NAH, just wondered the above
