2001 Toyota Camry Solara - Keep it or let it go?

146,000 miles - standard transmission. Recently had to replace clutch master cylinder and accumulator. Still had problems shifting - repair shop test drove, re-bled clutch hydraulic system, etc - finally diagnosed something is binding in the transmission.

Should I look into pulling the transmission and rebuilt transmission - or “retire” the old girl?

Toyota… will go 300K miles IF well treated and serviced regularly.

Transmission repair … cheaper than a new car BY FAR

Retire the old girl, to what? A junkyard? Sounds like a steal of a deal for someone will to put a few dollars intoa repair.
