What’s up y’all! So my luck ran out a few days ago when I was driving the 4x4 Sequoia, i I could feel grinding everytime I pressed the the accelerator pedal. Transmission fluid was at normal temps. Soon after the grinding the clutch was slipping between 1st and 2nd. I could still limp her into third, fun. I figured it’s the perfect time to drop the pan to check fluids and woah. It was carnage, burnt oil with medal shaving that look like the t1000 from terminator raising from the blackness. Yea, then the magnets were covered in metal shavings, one magnet was sliced completely in half, which caused damage to the oil filter inlet, it was actually confusing for a moment, the bend looked like it came from factory, good thing I had gotten a knew one to compare. Yea, that thing was bent by the Pieces from the magnet. Anyways, just a heads up, I’ll be installing a used tranny. And that’s after being quoted $2400 for a rebuilt one and when I found out the entire job was going to cost closer to 4K, I put my head down and started looking into doner transmissions.. I’ll post some pics of the pan, filter if y’all want.
conclusion: found plenty of doner transmissions in the area, Orange County. I’m findingthat most of the lower mileage transmissions are out of state, customer service is also appreciated as always from the south, they sureknow how to treat a potential client. Anyways, you shouldn’t pay more then $350 for a doner with 100-130k. I’m paying a shoot to do mine for$550. Relatively cheap but it’s better then the alternative, we shall see.
