Re: water proofing 999
the tranny shop is right BUT, getting it out ASAP means before youve run it any with water in there, the water will dissolve the glue that holds the friction material to the clutches and bands.
mine ran for almost a year before going bellyup, I got it stuck in Hood deep water one night ( hood deep to a FSJ Cherokee with 33 inch tires, chest high on me)
it ran home barely, never would come out of 2ndgear. several fluid changes and months of driving I thought i had it licked, but it eventually gave, and when I rebuilt it it was like sludge/mud inside.
I hope your luckier than me, but time will tell.
