Sorry to hear Jackie. If you've ever considered going manual and can afford some downtime while you source parts, here's you chance.

If you stick with an auto, make sure you get the tranny and labour warrantied. As 2wicked suggested, slap on a tranny cooler while your at it. http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=BMM-70268

Keep us updated.

Sorry to hear about your tranny.

Auto trannies are evil. My buddie learned the hard way, not once but twice.

First time: Engine blew, bought a used engine and swapped it in using the original tranny. Dumbass didn't install the torque converter correctly and fried the tranny.

Second time: Bought a used tranny from TAP Recycling. Swapped the tranny and the differential went out about a month later.

Took the tranny back to TAP Recycling and got another one under warranty. Good thing TAP is only 25 mins away.

Sold the car to a friend and as far as I know its running fine.

I'm not trying to scare you.

My buddie is just a dumbass and didn't install things properly. :slap:

If the tranny is in good condition and its installed properly, you shouldn't have any problems.

Glad you said that cuz I was about to put TAP on my shitlist like Maita Toyota.

^ TAP is cool, they just charge to damn much for their parts. And some of their employes are dumbasses, I won't go into that.

Never went to Maita Toyota except to buy parts cos Florin Rd. Toyota didn't have em.

I avoid dealerships like the plague unless I need to buy parts from them. Its a good thing I know how to work on cars and engines. ;)

Its not necessary, but it is good to have.

The radiator already has a tranny cooler built into it, so you'd just be installing another one.

You just mount it and hookup the hoses.

Its hooked up in series with the tranny cooler built into the radiator. You can either hook it up before or after the radiator.

If you want more info than what 88LE already provided, do a keyword search using "cooler" posted by me in the hardcore section and you'll find a ton of info. We've covered this topic extensivley.
