W56 4WD tranny problems

January 20, 2015 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1989 4 Runner 2.4L 4WD Pickup

Question:  I have noise coming from the transmission on all gears except the 4th gear. I had the noise before, then I replaced the clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing and pilot bearing.The noise just got worse. 4th gear is still quiet/ Driving at 65MPH, the 5th gear has a high pitch whining sound. Do I need to overhaul my transmission and would I need all the parts including synchro and input shaft? Is it a W564X4 tranny?

Answer:  This is usually a result of running low on fluid damaging the input and cluster gear.  We recommend the following parts.

  • Bearing Rebuild Kit with Synchro Rings 4Runner (2.4L) (Truck has Original Input Shaft) 20MM OD input brg, wire sync springs part number TRSBK162WS, your cost is $258.85.

Tacoma will not Shift?

November 26, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Tacoma 1998 2.7Lt, 4WD.Toyota_W56_MTTOY005

Questions:  My transmission is stuck in 1st gear but the shift lever is in the neutral position. It drives in 1st gear and feels smooth, but can’t be shifted. I have replaced the shift lever bushing and seat, and also the clutch master and slave. Today I pulled the trans and the shift lever still won’t budge. What can be the possible cause and solution?

Answer:  The factory technical Rep thinks that some how the shifter lug internal got shifted into low gear and because of a worn shifter seat (bushing) allowed the stub to remain in the (N) position.

If you look at an angle towards the right front corner of the shifter opening and look down in the transmission you will see 3 shift gates  furthest to the right is the ½ rail. This rail would need to be pried forward into the (N) position because right now being in gear it has engaged all of the interlocks and will not allow you to shift another gear.

If this is unsuccessful the tail housing would need to be removed to get it back into (N).

Transmission Problem 88 Toyota Pickup

October 29, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Toyota pickup 1988 2.4L engine.

Question:  I let my father in law use my truck to drive from Mississippi to Colorado which is a far drive for such an old truck he made it almost completely back until 3rd and 4th gear started grinding when they are engaged. I tried the shift lever bushings which is usually the issue for Toyota trucks but they still grind and knocks itself out of gear the only thing I can think of would be the gears are stripped and a rebuild or replacement is needed.

Answer:   Sounds like it is possible that the input bearing is failing. 4th gear is the input and 3rd is right behind it. it is also possible that the gears have an issue but hard to tell until it is opened up.

If you decide to open it up we will have all of the parts for it in stock..

We assume this is a fuel injected vehicle? If that’s correct we can provide a remanufactured transmission that will be dyno tested prior to shipment. Order our part number MTTOY007 W56E, 5 speed 4WD, your cost is $933.00 plus $250.00 core deposit, plus freight. This transmission has a one year warranty. If you have any additional questions give Scott a call at 888-824-2012 he can help you.

Need Stronger Transmission for TT Supra

June 2, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1995 Toyota Supra 3.0 twin turbo.Toyota_W56_MTTOY005

Question:  My Supra is a conversion from N/A twins and I still have the stock w58 that came with the car. I was wondering if it was worth rebuilding this transmission seeing as how I’m putting 400wwhp to it or should I just upgrade.

Answer:   We would suggest that you elect to rebuild the current transmission and cryogenic treating all of the critical hard parts, as the 6 speed in very expensive and impossible to find parts.  We can rebuild your current unit the price would be about $900.00 include all new bearings,  Gaskets, seals and syncro rings.

Cryo treating is $10 per pound estimate around 35 lbs and additional $350.00 add about 30% in strength.

Freight will be added. For additional information give Scott a call 888-0824-2012 he can help you.
