Run some used engine oil through the fuel system. After that, you won't complain about the smell of regular Diesel exhaust anymore.

Cleaning the valve body is almost free. The cost is your time, a trans filter and fluid. It might take you the better part of a day to remove it, clean it and reinstall it. When cleaning it, be...

That's not good. My grey 300SD had a whining sound in park or neutral for a few years before 4th went completely out. I swapped in a good, used transmission and it does not have that sound anymore....

Yep, when you rebuild one of these transmissions with 250-300K on it, there is usually more than one issue with them.

Sounds a lot like motor mounts to me. It is very possible they got broken when they disconnected the trans mount and tilted the trans back. What brand mounts did you have on the engine?

If it smooths out when you rev it, check the motor mounts. If it gets worse the higher the RPM, check the torque converter.

The 722.3 series is a plenty strong enough transmission. The issue I have seen is that someone has "played" with the output shaft nut. Typically they don't get torqued to spec, reused or not peened...

I would stop driving the car. It's not worth getting stranded somewhere. The B2 piston is near the rear of the transmission, so you will need to drop it down. You will have an easier time if you jack...
