    • If your going to remove the transmission already. Then remove and inspect everything you can just unbolt and clean them. Pump, oil pan, OD solenoid and such like. Any crud you clean out can only extend its life. The Toyota transmission filter looks like it's made from a screen door

      A rebuild pump is $75-$100.

      Unfortunately I don't think they are going to really have it in stock. It's been discontinued and most places show that. Maybe you can have your old one welded. Take it off first and take it in somewhere. My tranny was slipping slightly when I got my Sunrader almost 20 years ago. Changed the fluid, lots of sparkly stuff in the pan, put in new and used Lucas transmission fix. Have changed the fluid maybe 2 more times since then but still always use the Lucas. Still using the same old tranny. 

      Might not fix yours but it might give you more time.

      I think you are right. Guess I can try ordering it and see what happens.


      As far as my transmission goes, my plan was to drop it using a transmission jack, figure out where the leak happened (front pump seal? something else?), replace that, put it back up, flush the fluid and hope for the best. Glad to hear that "lots of sparkly stuff in the pan" doesn't mean dead transmission right away and perhaps it can be saved without doing any major overhaul as the first post in this thread.

      Ok just read the whole thing bottom line no matter what you do will prevent an overhaul. New fluid on a hard worked trans with issue you'll be walking with in a week. The new fluid is highly detergent and most likely take the clutch's out. They are actually good old transmissions. If you could drain the converter that will only make it worse with the new fluid. I worked for a transmission shop we actually saved drain oil from transmissions that was clean looking. After trying to explain to the customer the hazard of using new fluid in one that had brown oil we when ahead and drain it and put the oil we saved in it instead of new. It bought them more time. 

      Sorry, trying to understand what you mean by "no matter what you do will prevent an overhaul"...
