Fact is the term "Transmission Pump" is vague and I am not sure what exactly that means. The transmission it's self is one big pump. - Torque converter? But to get to your question - no, it's NOT common at all for a transmission to be making a 'grinding noise' at 71k miles. But if the mechanic is honest and there is a problem, $522 is about as inexpensive as any transmission repair will ever be. But please come back, if/when work is done and tell us what was done. Whatever you do get a receipt and work order from shop explaining specifically what work was done. Good Luck
