Find out if that’s the 3.0 motor (bad) or 2.8L (slower, but more durable, easier to work on)

I know nothing about the tranny you refer to. I thought they were all ZF 5HP18 or 19As.
The 4.2s had some issues with torque converters, but those are the 5HP24A.

TB jobs depends on which motor you have. Figure $500-800 depending. Procedure in bentley (full, not sure if its in the paper service manual)
