So I have a big decision to make:
After spending a bit over $2k doing the gearbox solenoid, I'm still getting recurring error codes (started 2 weeks after new solenoid installed) and the transmission shop is saying I might have to lay down another $1k to have a rebuilt torque converter installed. Of note, is the strange fact that I don't get any appreciable slip in the TC when they're testing it so I'm not really sure this is the issue. I'm thinking about forcing the issue and making them replace the solenoid under warranty and they've talked about doing it, but I don't want to make them do it only to have the issue reappear. To top it off, my air con compressor just died as well so I have to possible spend $2k on getting that working again.
I'm seriously in two minds about doing it and am even considering selling it to buy a Ssangyong Rexton 4wd later in the year, but it's so nice to drive and we've spent a bit of money doing new tyres and the lift in the last year or so I'm not sure if I'd be doing the right thing.
At least I did manage to get the KJ into Unsealed 4x4's readers vehicles section and it's a fine looking beast
Sorry for the long rant. Would I just be chasing more problems if I fixed it, nothing it's 14 years old this year?
