Q: Transmission replacement cost

asked by on

What should I expect to pay to replace the transmission

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A complete, re-manufactured transmission for your car would cost about $2,000 plus the labor cost to install it. Inasmuch as your car has only 130,000 miles, if you are having transmission problems, it might be possible to repair your existing transmission at lower cost, particularly if it has a relatively simple issue like a shift solenoid problem or a valve body problem. Issues such as that can often be repaired without removing the transmission from the vehicle. To get a complete diagnosis, explore all your options and better understand your costs, YourMechanic would be pleased to help you.
