Need Advice, Info 85 GL-10 transmission

Recommended Posts

I have a 85 GL-10 1.8 EFI 2wd 3 speed auto. The tranny just went out the other day (for the 3rd time), and I need some info about changing it. First the car is a POS that I drive to work so Im not intrested in swaping a 5 speed into it, Id just like to replace it with the same. I have found a used 3 speed for $300, is this an ok price? Also Iv been told to replace the toqure converter, why should I do this? I know about flushing the radiator so that any metal will not get into the new trans. I plan on doing it myself, so I thought Id rent a tranny jack. Any other advice, info, or links would be appreciated.

Thanks

$300 sounds a bit steep unless it comes with the converter and some sort of good warranty..

 

When I pulled the one from my 2wd turbowagon, I sold it for $40

Hell i paid $50 For a 3AT 4wd with torque converter about 5 months ago, and then i stopped driving the car and i still have the tranny, i would offer it to you but the shipping would be killer :(
