Dear scrodney-- Help is available in every town at a transmission specialist. Your problem with your 1998 Toyota Tacoma can be as simple as low fluid level or using the wrong fluid. Or, it could be a major transmission with the internal part of the transmaission itself. Let a pro look at it and try to avoid reacting on advice from some well meaning friend. Good luck from Bovan.
