94 525i Auto Trans Failure
So my auto transmission finally failed which has been slipping for quite some time. Now it doesn't move, just revs then a squeak is pretty audible. Torque Converter? Who know.
Question is, should I risk installing a used one from a yard with the typical 6 mos warranty or have my mechanic rebuild and R&R it for $2500? Are these rebuild-able?
Thought of a manual swap until I searched and found out how labor intensive that is.......I'll pass on that one.
She's in good condition, has 164K miles on her and I've redone the head a few years back (see my post on the work if you wish) so I'm at a crossroad about parting with her but $2500 seems excessive to put into a 1994 vehicle. And selling it as is, well.....pretty sure I wouldn't get much for it.
