Has anyone had their transmission rebuilt professionally? Any places you'd recommend or recommend avoiding? I'm not opposed to putting it on a pallet and shipping it somewhere if it is worth it. If you've had it done, what did it cost you?

The A750s aren't known to completely self-destruct, so I'm cautious of that diagnosis. But without any further details of symptoms, I cannot intelligently comment.

Sorry, I don't have any advice on where to send it either. I'd start looking for a reputable trans specialist on Yelp that has plenty of Toyota experience.

If it ends up requiring rebuild-I'd look at a rebuilt A750 from Toyota about $2500 after avg discount of 18% ( which is about the max discount on complete transmission) part # 35010-35B40-84. You can be assured that the rebuilt trans directly from Toyota will have been rebuilt to a stricter criteria over a standard local rebuild that will have generic rebuild parts.

I priced one from Teq a few years ago out of curiosity and found similar pricing. So, that's at the very high end of what I would spend on maintenance/service and @abuck99 is right, the Teq reman will be as good as you can get.

Also, how do you accidentally drain a sealed transmission and keep running it :(

An excellent question. I don't have an answer. She said it was raining and didn't see the leak on the ground. She said the truck shifted "different" and drove it to her mechanic after work and he deemed it in need of replacement. He removed it from the truck and that is how it is right now.

Removed from truck and held ransom for repair- ouch. Doesn't require removal to asses a failed trans. Suspect.
