Our 2002 Tundra we has another blown tranmission after 25,000 miles:cry: we think. The first problem occurred at 78,000, had it replaced with a toyota rebuilt tran and now after 25,000 it will not go into reverse. Took it the dealer and the transmission pan had all kinds of metal in it which I guess indicated we will be replacing transmission again. We are not very suavy on how to fix cars and why they break down. But we are very good a maintenance, etc. Can anyone give me an idea of why and how this could happen? I am alittle concerned because while the truck doesn't have reverse my hubby is still driving it until we figure out what to do. We live in a small rural town and he is planning to drive 250 miles home with this possibly bad transmission. Is this a good idea?

Has the truck been into any accidents? I have had trannies go because of things being bent just enough to cause abnormal wear on parts.

so was there any warranty period on the second tranny? since he will hopefully be driving in drive to come home he should have no problem unless it grenades on him and hope he is going slow when that happens!! and i really hope it does not!! but he needs to get a charged cell phone, and be ready to go get him!! or have a tow truck go get him if he brakes down

Blown tranny at 25k is not a good sign, as to the workmanship.
Where did you had it done?
Most shops/companies give a 3/36 warranty on rebuilds, at least the ones I've seen advertised.
