4th gear slips in automatic transmission (JATCO JF506E) and drivetrain warning light persists. Local transmission specialist says that there is nothing special in the OBD and insists that the whole unit should be replaced.
When trying to source a rebuilt unit online one transmission parts dealer I found claims that it can be solved by changing only the high clutch in the existing unit. They say it's a 3 hours job without having to remove the transmission from the car.
Could this be true and worth trying without using a rebuilt trans and removing the engine+unit? It would save $2000+ and 8 hours+ of labour.
Thank you sincirely in advance for your opinion!
