I was starting to think it was something in learned driving habits and gear hunting based on my light foot driving style at 40-45mph. I gave up on it since I have so many miles on it now and it never caused me any issues, but it does do it, I don't call it a wobble but a hesitation / hunting, like it can't catch the gear.
when I took it to the dealership (couldn't replicate the shudder that day) the tech reset the learning parameters for the tranny or something like that. It didn't do a thing.

This seems to be a common theme with people experiencing this problem..

40 - 45 mph, light accelerator, shudder/hesitation occurs. not so much an issue if you're heavy on the throttle all the time..I expect it's more of a nuisance for people like me with short commutes..

Interesting… by OCV, are you referring to Oil Control Valve for VVT? If yes, what filter screen did you clean..?

Yes, oil control valve. There is a filter screen at the top of the oil pipe where it enters the valve cover at the OCV.

Thanks,

It's pretty simple. Unscrew the bolt at the top of the oil tube, there should be a conical screen loosely fitted on the end of the bolt and it should come out with the bolt (mine both did). Pull the bolt out slowly and carefully. I used pb blaster to clean the screens. Put it back together and torque as specified. There are two washers which I re-used each time without issue, though the drawing says to replace each time. So be careful you don't let one fall out.

You will see right away if they are gummed up and restricting oil flow to the OCV. In my case, I knew they were because I had a cam shaft retard code after the hesitation started. I had some sludge build up, which I think was caused by a bad PCV valve and some long periods of idling in hot weather, but who knows. I cleaned the screens, gently cleaned the OCV's, and also cleaned each cam position sensor. My problem went away and I've been doing 5k oil changes ever since along with checking the PCV valve and also the OCV screens occasionally.

Im already planning on taking it to a local mechanic to have them check it out to see if they can determine anything as well. Seems like for a vehicle I've only have 1.5 years to already be having transmission problems is kind of a big deal.
I believe all Toyota truck with the 5 speed transmission can have this issue. I owned a 08 FJ since new and had almost 200k miles on it before I sold it in 4 days! It did it once on me until I started doing a transmission pan drain and fill every 15k miles. I believe the transmission fluid is the issue. I just did it on my 18 4runner at 18k miles on it and it was almost brown in color instead of red. I only use Toyota WS transmission fluid. A transmission fluid pan drain and fill takes exactly 3.25 quarts.
