This is something everyone should have handy for general automotive and household repairs.

A speed sensor from pick n pull is $10. Look for one that isn't leaky, pull it, and even if you have to replace the o-ring you have the sensor in hand while still being able to drive the crv.

Also, taking the sensor out of a junker vehicle gives you practice before working on your own vehicle. If you mess up, you don't pay for it plus you learn.

I'd be curious who actually "rebuilds" transmissions in Calgary vs replacing them with refurb units. From my experiences with my Camaro, no one has the tools for a Borg Warner T-56. When I wore out some gears in my Mustang, the only solution was for the Trans shop to replace it. Pretty bogus

I wouldn't want one to rebuild a transmission outside of a transmission rebuilder. I would trust a remanufactured one one rebuilt inside a transmission shop anyday.

Take a look at your CRV to see what tools you need to bring.

I've had some really good days out at the wreckers

I hear you, but it sure sucks having to have an entire transmission replaced because of a couple of worn out gears. Why can't they install upgraded parts inside a manual trans? It must be rocket science. Because it's all about get it in and out and f the customer , that's why

Transmission rebuilders seem to specialize in automatics. I think they just don't have the experience or want the hassle of dealing with a manual. The manual is a simpler beast by far, but such a vastly different device and a different skillset needed by their techs that I doubt they want to get involved. The good news is the few specialized tools you need are available cheaply online and they're a simple enough beast with far less specialty tools and knowledge needed to reassemble correctly.

Autos are way easier to rebuild. They are basically a bucket of loose parts stacked in a pyramid like a kids toy and don't require many tools to work on. i.e. A modern Chrysler 4/5/6 speed you need 1 torx bit and a pocket screwdriver to completely disassemble it.

I've helped with some auto tranny rebuilds and am still intimidated by autos because they're basically aluminum cases full of sharp bits and a ton of difficult snap rings and I didn't find the operation intuitive once inside. A manual trans I can see and understand, put it in the gears, and identify the crunchy parts by eye and feel. I probably need to sit down with a 4L60, a case of beer, and one of those 'how to rebuild your tranny' books and just get in to it.

Transmission supplies just off Blackfoot is a good place for orings if you need one. Not an automotive trans shop just all kinds of industrial parts.
Don't just put any oring in there as ATF will eat many different rubbers. I would ask them what they would suggest for oring material, of the top of my head I'd say nitrile should work but ask an expert.
