View Full Version : Good transmission shops in Jax?
01-29-2008, 09:23 AM
I need to get the clutch and throw out bearing on my transmission replaced. I'm trying to avoid the dealership if I can because I know they rape you on prices. Anyone have any suggestions for a good shop to get this done at?

My buddy from church did mine in my 90 4runner for like $150 labor. My truck has been great since! He is the head mechanic at the pontiac/ford dealership on southside and atlantic so he's usually busy but if you can drop it off and wait a couple days then it's something to think about. I called around and got anywhere from $350-$900 at local shops and that was with me buying the clutch/flywheel kits. Let me know and I'll call and see how busy he is.

If you have any mechanical experience/abilities just do it yourself. Or get a buddy to help who knows. Its really quite easy. The hardest part is pulling the tranny but with a simple tranny jack attached to your standard floor jack its a piece of cake! I did mine in a couple hours and I even pulled the tranny twice cause I thought I fawked it up but it was all good. Saves TONS of $$$!
Bring it to igors mechanix our moto it "we dont know what the hell were doing but we try our best"

Ok, heres the other part, I also need the throw out bearing replaced and I'm gonna get the main seal(?) done as well. I live in the dorms at UNF so uh....doing it at "my place" is kinda out of the question. All I've got is a full set of sockets and screw drivers. Any more suggestions? This still something I(translation myself and whoever I could possibly sucker into it) could do myself?
Thanks for the help.

Well if I was still there you could totally come use my garage but oh well. I am sure there is someone here who will be able to hook you up. Otherwise it sounds like you may just be biting the bullet and spending the dough to have it done.:(
i wonder if i could get him an employee discount at arlington toyota:confused: oh and there is a 5.7iforce sitting on a tire lol doing nothing over there:rolleyes:
