I went mudding the other day, got stuck and messed up my truck pretty bad. (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...e-my-taco.html) I took it to the dealer and they replaced the front seal for the crankshaft, fixed a pulley and replaced the belts since they had oil all over them.
I picked it up and drove a little and it started leaking trans fluid took it back and they said it was from the dipstick and just a slow leak. I picked it up again and drove it some more and it was leaking like crazy. I just took it back and now they said it was the seal between the transmission and the torque converter. They gave me a quick estimate at about $1200 but he said there was a noise somewhere and could be a pump or something. He said that alone could be like $900. I'm afraid they're gonna take it apart and tell me I need a new torque converter or transmission or something.
I'm pretty new to Tacomas and working on vehicles in general. To replace that seal or even a new torque converter how much work would that be for me to do? I'm just afraid they're gonna open it up and find more stuff and it comes out to $3000 or something. Anyone have any advice?
