Q: How much does it cost roughly to have a new transmission pit in on a 2008 Ford Explorer XLT with 131,500 miles on it?

asked by on

I Would like to know approximately how much it would cost to get a new transmission or repaired transmission for my Explorer? Thank you? I ask because my car jerks into gear

My car has 131500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The cost of an off-the-shelf re-built transmission for this vehicle is in the range of $2,000 to $3,000 or more if you buy a Ford certified unit from the new car dealer. Rebuilding the transmission might be somewhat less costly. The book labor to remove and re-install a transmission in this vehicle is roughly 7 hours or so. There are other costs depending on whether all "related" parts are re-usable or not. Prior to condemning your transmission you should have the issue you are experiencing with the car diagnosed. It may be that there is a lower cost resolution available. If you request a service appointment, the responding certified mechanic will determine why the transmission is not functioning properly. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic because we want you to make the most of your repair dollars and help you to get the best possible results.
