    have a 99 toyota tacoma 3.4L, 5sp, 4wd! Before i took the old one out it wouldnt stay in first gear, grinded in 2nd and made a loud static noise!!
    Bought a used transmission and transfer case, new clutch kit, master clutch cyclinder and clutch slave cyclinder! Took it to a guy to install and got it back!
    It grinds shifting from 3 to 4 almost every time! And grinds when down shifting from 3 to 2, kind makes a weird noise to!
    What should i do? what could it be?

    Are you guys bleeding these cylinders correctly? secondly , hope you have a warrantee or return credit from where ever you got it. Stop driving it, go get your money back or another replacement if you can. Whats really going on here may be bad input shaft/shafts Did you grab the inputshaft on the one you bought first ? That'd be the first thing I'd do , check it for end play & side to side , end play being the amount of back & forth slop you feel, a little tiny amount is normal, check the side to side, this should be almost non existent. If sloppy, input shaft bearings are/on the way out & noise from tranny can get pretty noisy between & in gear, & there isn't any thing cheap about getting it fixed. There are some very good used trannys out there ya just have to know what & how to check it, sounds like you got a bad "new" used transmission sorry dude, good luck:cool:

    What fluid did you put in the tranny? Was it GL-4 or GL-5?
