It looks like it's gonna be between $1900 and $2200 for the transmission work on the truck, and that's just the pre-taking-apart estimate. It definitely seems like it'll take a transmission rebuild, though, so that's not the mechanic being unreasonable. It's just that it's the transmission, and that means it's expensive.

Do I just keep my truck as a beater 'til the transmission fails, and start looking for a cheap used replacement? Do I pay this, because it's otherwise been a pretty solid, reliable little truck (with 100,000+ miles, though)? I don't want to pay for a new car at this point if I can avoid it...

Damn, I dunno.
