ive rebuild a few transmissions, tedious and it would suck to screw something up and have to rip it apart again. usually best to just get it done professionally

Can any of you guys tell me what years of 4x4 trannys will work in my 95? It's the 4 cyl 5 speed. I'll need that info to begin my search. Thanks

You 4cyl guys are lucky. I had to pay $800 for a trans and then about 1k for labor to have it swapped out.

I just finished doing a tranny drain and fill. It pained me to drain the Amsoil GL4 out and refill with the Sta-Lube GL4 from NAPA but it did quieten the whine down considerably. I know i'm just prolonging the inevitable but it might buy some time until I can find a good used tranny. The Amsoil was a little dark with only a small amount of grey metal on the magnet....and I'm actually surprised that this has happened... especially with the Amsoil being in the tranny for just over a year. Mine only has 165,000 miles on it. Maybe these trannys are a weak link in the chain. Thanks

So that's the going rate for a new/rebuilt 5 speed on a V6 4WD?

for a rebuild youre looking at about that, shouldnt matter if the trans is a V6 or 4 banger really. used trans from junker cars are really cheap, but already rebuilt one are in the $700-$1000+ range

i build trannys for a living and 2wd no problem easy pull and simply tranny. still need plenty of the right tools but nothing to crazy gets more complicated with bearings. 4wd if you pulling yourself its more worth it to buy a rebuilt simply b/c of the time its going to take to pull let alone the transfer case will likely need a good go through. then again sadly i build dodge trannys 'lots of work lol' and havnt gotten a chance to go through mine yet so if you have a specific ? probs cant help much without looking through it

I've replaced 2 trannys for a whine on the highway only in "float" not accelerating but not decelerating, you know what I'm
Talking about? Anyways the first one started getting worse and it was the main shaft bearing, this is the second trans and my sucrose are gone, but the whine is present. After cruising to the paint shot wih no rear glass I have discovered it's the rear diff transferring noise and. Buzz through the trans and shifter

Finding the vehicles can also be a challenge, I have look everywhere in town for the tranny on my Centra 2006 and came out empty handed, pull a part, lkq, pick and pull, none of those has my car in stock, they always tell me to check back and to keep an eye on their website https://www.picknpullapart.com for inventory updates, this can take months and I need my car fixed ASAP.

Good luck with getting yours fixed
