Downshift To 1St Gear Thud!

Recommended Posts

I own a 2000 GS 300. Bought it pre-owned with 94K miles. When coming to a stop sign, especially when engine is cold, I hear a sudden thud when transmission is down shifting to stop. I serviced the transmission and this eliminated a lot of the thud. But not 100%

Sounds like the transmission mount is shot, but I could be wrong, hows ur tranny fluid look and smell?

does it smell burnt also look for metal shavings,

It's probably time for a tranny service anyway get that done and check the mount out while ur at it.

Hope it helps
