Your transmission suddenly isn’t shifting right. So what’s wrong with it? Do you need your transmission rebuilt? Good question. Unfortunately, the answer is: No one knows. At least, not yet. To find out what’s causing your transmission problem, a technician is going to have to perform a series of tests. Basically, these tests are designed to answer the simple question: “Is it inside or outside?” That is, is the problem inside the transmission, or in one of the many control systems that operates the transmission?
Prevention is better than cure. You've probably heard that said plenty of times. The phrase is most often used to talk about health and medicine, but it is just as valid to apply it to vehicles. It's great if your problem can be sorted without much trouble, but even better not to have a problem in the first place. This is especially true when it comes to your vehicle's transmission, as this can be one of the more specialized parts to repair. Not all transmission problems require an extensive overhaul, but they will all cause at least some trouble and inconvenience. Avoiding transmission problems is clearly preferable to even the problems that are quickest and cheapest repair. This is why it is important to ensure you take good care of your transmission. This will help prevent problems and keep it working smoothly. Ideally, it will mean that it doesn't develop any faults at all. Even if it does eventually go wrong, however, it is entirely possible that good care will mean the fault is less serious and easier to repair than it would have been otherwise.
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Mike Clark's Automotive in Abilene now provides the Jasper Engines re-manufactured Toyota A750E (RWD) and A750F (4WD) transmissions. These transmissions are available for the 2004-2011 Toyota Tundra, Sequoia, Tacoma, 4 Runner, and FJ Cruiser transmission replacements
Each JASPER remanufactured Toyota A750E and A750F transmission is 100% dynamometer tested using a state of the art dyno software package eliminating the chance of shifting concerns and ensures a quality product for the customer. All wear areas of the valve body are reamed to oversize, where applicable, and vacuum-tested to restore the hydraulic integrity of the unit reducing the chance of low fluid pressure within the transmission, causing slipped clutches.
In addition to the value-added quality re-manufacturing steps to provide a perfect product, great care is taken to ensure each A750E and A750F transmission replacement option can stand up to the rigors of everyday life. Each transmission receives 100% new friction plates from the OE manufacturer to retain shift quality and durability. Converter linings are 100% replaced to reduce lock-up shudder and solenoids are 100% tested to verify proper operation before they are installed in the transmission.
The JASPER remanufactured Toyota A750E and A750F transmission is covered by a three-year, 100,000 mile, nationwide parts, and labor warranty.

The center section is balanced at over 70,000 RPM. They verify balance is at .05 grams per square inch or below for best operation and improved turbo life.
For those of you who aren't mechanically-savvy, you probably still understand that transmission problems are among the most expensive repairs required for your vehicle. That's because your transmission is a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power to your engine, ultimately determining the rate of speed you travel.
