I have my truck back. Yay!

My wallet is a staggering $1,014 lighter. BOO!

So the problem, when they got the transmission out of the truck and the clutch off, was that the clutch springs had broken. So in addition to replacing those, they resurfaced the disc and pressure plate and replaced some of the bearings. More or less a clutch job. I called them today and told them that, since they were in there, they might as well change the transmission fluid since it hadn't been done. They also did the "floor mat" recall - which was me telling them I wanted to keep my current mats because the ones they wanted to replace them with sucked.

The total cost of the repairs was $915. Add in $99 for the rental car. And that's not including the $33 I put into the rental car before returning it or the "cost" of taking an afternoon off of work to drive to and from Chattanooga.

Transmission fluid on a standard?

Yeah, standards do use a lubricant. Depending on the type, it might be regular motor oil or the same fluid used in automatics. There's a schedule that you're supposed to change them on (that I've kind of ignored). I think Toyota suggests every 30,000 miles.
