sounds like it, but a gearbox rebuild will be costly unless you can DIY
its a common mr2 gremlin in the c50 gearbox, is that the one you have? or do you have the late model c52?

85-86 came with the C-50. 87-89 had the C-52.

The C-52 has starter mounting positions on both the intake and exhaust side which look like ears.

id say you most likely have the c50, as they are pretty notorious for 1st to 2nd fork failure, and it was one of the main things toyota upgraded with the c52 to prevent it from occuring

i mean, its gonna cost alot to rebuild maybe see if any wreckers have a c52 mr2, late model gearbox you could take, if you get the one with the 2 starter motor positions its should be a c52

then just get a mechanic to check its working and swap her over
will save you alot of money on labour, and probably on parts too, as its cheaper to buy a whole second hand gearbox
