One reason I bought a truck with a manual trans was because I've had 2 automatic trannys fail in the past, and they were quite expensive to replace. 2 days ago I'm driving home and all I hear is grinding from my tranny, and it fails. The truck is at the shop now. They have not pulled the tranny yet, but they called me, and they seem to think it will need a rebuild, and they recommended that I find a used tranny somewhere, because a rebuild will run about 2 grand. Does this sound right? That is more expensive than an auto!
