Just curious, want to know when I'm going to have to start worrying about the transmission. As far as I know it'* never been abused. Opinions? Tranny has 130k on it.

Mine has 210000 kms on it and shifts as firm as it did at 134000 (when I bought it).

l67 wise

on my ssei it went out at 132k and the previous owner had it rebult, at 155k when I got it it was getting rough again and slipping sometimes. most likely a torque converter related issue


on the lss-sc it went at 150k or so. diff failure.

My 95 had 155ish when I sold it and it was strong as ever. Some New Yorker got a hold of it and splattered it in under 3 months with no mods on it.

Pfffft, I have the non HD and it has 200,400 miles, 13 years old, original transmission. Still works like the day it was bought. You have nothing to worry about unless it was never maintained.

You're not hammering your trans with massive torque.

First one went at 110k in the 93. The 95'* is starting to go at 115k.

Just did the conversion (to make it easier on you, aren't I nice?!) and 210000 kms is about 130000 mi.
