TRANSMISSION REPAIR

TRANSMISSION REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT?


In most cases, a manual or automatic can be repaired if only minimal parts and labor are required. Rebuilding or replacing a transmission is generally more expensive. An average transmission repair costs $300 to $1400. A new clutch for a manual transmission, for example, could cost approximately $800 to $1,500.
The replacement of a transmission, however, is among the most expensive automotive repairs. Transmission replacements can cost between $1,800 and $3,400. Repair shops and technicians have different labor charges, which can range from $500 to $1200. Below is an overview of the average transmission repair cost:

  • Transmissions remanufactured for $1,300 to $3,400
  • Used/salvage – from $800 to $1,500
  • The cost of rebuilding varies from $1,100 to $2,800

HOW TO CHECK YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID?

Catch potential damage before it becomes serious by checking your vehicle’s transmission fluid regularly. You can do this if you simply:

  • Turn the car on to warm up the engine.
  • Find the transmission fluid dipstick. Use your owner’s manual if you’re having trouble finding it.
  • Remove the dipstick and put some of the fluid on your finger. Move it around between your forefinger and thumb. This liquid should be mostly clear with a pink hue.
  • Make sure the fluid doesn’t give off a burnt smell or look dirty. If this is the case, bring your model in for a replacement.
  • Wipe off the dipstick with a rag and put it back in place.
  • Pull it out again to check the levels. Add more if it’s under the “Full” marking.
  • Using a funnel, add more fluid until it reaches the “Full” marking.

The best way to avoid problems is to keep up with regular services, such as a transmission flush or fluid replacement.  We can diagnose problems and offer solutions, as well as a wide range of genuine parts.
