since yours is a 4x4 V6 5 speed. It'll most likely have 4.10s.

hwy will be around 17-22 depending on how your drive, where your driving and gas.

Assuming they changed from like a 3.73 to 4.10's? how did that effect MPG?

High gear ratios means less strain on the motor. So usually better mpgs.

If you want to know what your truck came with. Use this sheet and the code found in the drivers door

so i spoke to the guy and it was not the torque converter but the solenoids in the transmission. Is this a common problem? The torque converter is just being replaced as the transmission is out.

Also price. $11k for 130k miles 02 TRD 4x4 with FJ trail team rims, 265x75 16 BFG's, small lift, brand new timing belt and water pump, new shocks, WHITE access cab with sunroof.

I heard that some older RAV 4s had a terrible problem like this, and in some cases it sounded like solenoids, but if they arent' fixed quickly enough, the whole transmisison is fucked. There was a big settlement and replacement program. A friend just missed it nad she had to pay for a whole new tranny.

I haven't heard about the 1st gen Tacomas having issues like this. But then I don't pay attention to auto tranny probs.

If it is "making noise," I wouldn't go near it. Damage is probably already done.

ok some more details. Spoke to the shop doing the work on the truck

Its P0741 ... so torque converter lock up clutch wasnt locking up, probably due to a solenoid but they are replacing both the torque converter and solenoids.
