Toyota 110 gearbox repairing or recondition one


Recommended Posts

If you are talking about a normal/conventional automatic, there are specialist shops who do a really good job repairing them. Standard automatics are not a box of mystery and bewilderment that it used to be in the 80s and 90s. So get it repaired. Even if you buy a used one, you will have no idea what the condition of the gearbox is since it would have come out of a 20 year old car. Unless you personally know the car the gearbox came out of and know for 100% that it is a low/average mileage car that was properly maintained, a used gearbox is a risk and you would have to refurb/rebuild it before installing it (in Japan you get full rebuilt gearboxes but those are very pricey and typically are meant to be exchanged for your existing old gear box +  rebuild cost, but they never get sent out to countries like SL) . So you might as well fix your existing gearbox. Put in a used one if the diagnosis is such that it is pretty much impossible to repair your existing one (which for a standard automatic is very very unlikely).

Hi,

 

Please share your experience about automatic gearbox repairing or recondition one buying ?  

 

 

An AE110 gearbox is as simple as it gets and should be repairable - of course recon gearboxes are there but why since you're anyway not buying a 'new' gearbox.

A Starlet recon gearbox costs about 40-50k.

Not sure if the 110 has a different gearbox (It's got the same engine) so that should get you a ballpark of how much a recon costs.

Both cars have the same gearbox with some ancillary parts slightly different for mounting differences, etc...

The 1.3L comes with a A132 series 3FWD AT gearbox.

The 1.5L comes with a A242/A244 series 4FWD AT gearbox.

Again, these gearboxes are pretty simple and fool proof to fix and any reputed Automatic Transmission repair shop can do it. As for cost; well it depends on what is wrong with the original (still probably will be lesser than buying a used unit because if the repair costs more than buying a used gearbox and refurbishing it these shops will not exist).

Actually yeah, so repairing should definitely less than 40k or so
