1999 Gs300 Transmission Sound

Recommended Posts

Hello Lexus Clubbies:

I have a 99 GS300 with 150K miles, bought it from a Lexus dealer at 147k miles. So far going great. I noticed when I first shift transmission in the morning (cold start) or whenever the car has been sitting for several hours and I start, the transmission makes a slight 'thud' sound when I shift to D mode, or R Mode. This does not happen after the car warms up an hour or so later in driving. Rest of the time, when I shift, I dont feel anything meaning it is quite silent and smooth. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this?

Your comments and experiences would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance to you all.
