I'm not too familiar with the R51, but I'd start by checking for strawberry milkshake of death (SMOD). Defective trans cooler in the rad mixes ATF with coolant and kills the trans. Look for schmoo floating in the coolant overflow tank, swollen rubber on the rad cap, and check the trans dipstick. Easy to prevent, expensive to repair. IIRC the 4.0 had some timing chain guide issues as well.
