Hi,I'd still like to drop the pan and see if there's anything in there; that would be a sure sign. I have the $12 electrical plug, so I'll replace that while I'm under there.
If it's not the TC, how likely is it I'd be successful "rebuilding" the trans? I've rebuilt 3 engines, done some heads, cams, timing belts, differentials, etc. I've got all the normal kinds of tools, including torque wrenches and gear pullers.
Or should I just get a rebuilt or junkyard one, which would be quicker.
First up, Trans and Converter must be done together, do not change one without the other, it usually results in more grief than it's worth, and you will end up doing it again using both parts :wink
To rebuild a 722.6 and Converter properly costs me £900 in parts.
3 hrs R&I, 1hr Road Test, back on Lift, Leak Check, Oil Level Final Check
8 hrs Strip Clean Inspect Rebuild.
There is a load of special tools needed to do this properly
To Rebuild and Fit I retail at @£1600 + depending on exact vehicle.
If I were a DIY and good with spanners I'd buy one with a Guarantee from a Breakers, pref low mileage, in UK around £450.00. If your breaker is honest about "good" and "mileage" you can fit and forget :wink
You MUST flush out the Oil Cooler and Lines.............
A couple of "Kooler Clean" Aerosols are a good DIY, we have a special Air Powered pulsating Paraffin Flushing plant :wink
