I have a 2001 Toyota Tacoma V-6 auto trans quad cab 4x4. 136,000 miles. Recently the transmission started slipping on cold morning when you first take off to drive. After 30 sec or so it will start moving slowly and then seems to get better as things warm up. If I manually shift it down to low it will take off fine and there is no trouble in reverse. I just had the transmission serviced that didn't help. Do I need to rebuild my transmission or is it just a band problem?
Do you

What color was the trans fluid befor the service. It should be red, however when they start to slip the fluid turns grayish because for the friction material from the cluchtes contaminating the fluid.

Best to have a trans shop to check the pressures on the transmission; especially when it is cold.

The fluid has always looked good since I have owned it. It had 70,000 miles on it when I bought it.
