Trucks needs a new transmission. 07 DCLB sport

So my truck has shifted hard from second to third since I bought it at 94,000 kms. It drives me nuts so I'v had it in the transmission shop a couple times to try and diagnose at both the Toyota dealer as well as AAMCO. Neither could find a problem. Now recently a new issue has appeared as well as some small hiccups. The truck has a intense shutter while in reverse and also in 3rd gear. Also has erratic shifting habits sometimes and thunks randomly from time to time.

I brought it back to Toyota and got a quote, they said the only thing they could do was replace the transmission (5500 bucks)

Then brought it back to aamco, The owner said he could get a used transmission with 88,000 kms installed out the door for 2000. Comes with a 90 day warranty.

What do you think?

Id think rebuilding is better than buying a used one with no history or anything. Just my opinion though

Its been a bit, but Darrin at White Valley Collision in Lumby had an '05 4x4 auto among the list of toyota's he was parting out, his used parts prices were pretty reasonable. 250-547-2254 is the number if you want to try contacting him.

When was last time you changed fluid in that thing. Cleaned strainer? Maybe replace seal on strainer? flushed cooler? Those transmission dont fail easly.

So were there any shavings in the oil pan ? How much? You sure you got strainer cleaned and seal replaced on it? or they just did the flush or something ?

The guy at AAMCO has the same truck and was really interested in what it could be so he went over all the minor possibilities. There were no shavings in the oil pan so no indication there.

Hes gonna pull it out and check a bunch of things. If he cant find the problem I'll have to go with a replacement trans. I'm not too concerned about getting a used one as they are pretty bulletproof so the chances of getting another lemon are slim.

Grand total with labor, parts, fluids and tax should be a hair under 2000.
make sure you get your old tranny back

Sounds like your 3rd 4th clutch pack is done. Idk how mechanically inclined you are but could get it rebuilt with upgraded clutch packs with tightened y bands for 1200 installed yourself. But 2k at 88k is a little high imop I know the warranty is nice but just got my ta tranny rebuilt with a bunch of goodies did all the labor myself and the warranty is covered 2years
