'04 with 228k. It has been sitting for a bit with tranny issues, and I have been piling miles on my tacoma. I need to start daily-driving the IS again!
Starter has been replaced. The rear diff had a slight leak and resealed it. Regular timing belt services, and motor is still solid.
Something happened to 3rd gear so I found a replacement tranny--not easy to find W55s! I had it pulled and shipped with fingers crossed. The gamble worked out and I had it installed with a new clutch/flywheel/PP.
Right after the install I was getting throwout bearing noise and strong chatter on engagement. I had a new bearing/clutch/PP kit sent due to the early bearing issue, and will be having it replaced again next week. The tweet/squeak from the tranny combined with the chatter warrants trying again. If chatter continues, I'll replace the mounts (even though lexus said they are fine) and if tweet is present after second replacement I'll be putting a light spring on the clutch fork to see if it helps. It seems to be a common issue with replacement kits.
