Having tranny problem s of my own?
My '86 4kq is having some tranny problems. It almost sound like a bearing
is going. It makes a whirling noise when in third or fifth gear. When is
neutral, second, or fourth, the noise immediately goes away. Has anyone
had the same symptoms? Does this sound like a bad bearing? If it is, and
from the threads I've read lately about tranny's, should I look for a used
one before paying someone to rebuild mine? The problem I see with this is
that I don't know whether a used one will work any better than mine.
I might have one option. I recently bought an '87 5ktqw for a turbo
conversion. Would it be wise to use that tranny, or is it even possible?
I've never heard of anyone putting a 5k tranny in a 4k. If it is
possible, what kind of change in torque would I get? Any advice would be
'86 4kq (awaiting turbo power)
'87 5ktqw (donor of engine and maybe tranny?)
