It probably would be good to open it and see what you find. Don't run it as it or you might end up with a real mess. I trashed a transaxle this summer and it was not pretty nor cheap.:wallbanging:

Drain the tranny of fluids, and while doing so, check to see if you find any metal mixed with the fluid. Put about 2 quarts of Diesel Fuel in the tranny. Try and slosh it around a little, to make sure you at least coat most of the gears. Let the fuel in the tranny for about a week, sloshing it aound daily, then drain it, and refill it with new gear oil. The diesel fuel will remove any rust residue on the gears and slide rods. After running the tranny for about 10 minutes, drain and refill again, just in case there was big pieces of rust that may have worked loose from traveling. You don't want this stuff floating around in the gears. You should then be good to go.
