There’s virtually no other engine component more complex and crucial to car’s very basic performance and ultimately to its safety than a car’s transmission.
Transmission is responsible for shifting gears (automatically or manually) to dynamically change the speed-torque ratio in order to deliver power for wheels!
Average Cost of Rebuild, Repair, and Replace:
Transmission replacement is one of the most toughest job for a mechanic to do, on par with being one of the priciest repair affairs of them all…
The job is typically done by the most experienced mechanic.
According to our working experience, an estimated median price for a transmission replacement ranges anywhere from $1800 to $3500.
A used/salvaged transmission cost immediately gets more down to the ground and averages anywhere between $800 to $1500, while a rebuilt transmission from $1500 to $2500 and a remanufactured from $2500 to $3500. The labor to remove and replace a transmission ranges from $450 to $850 for 4 to 9 hours of billed time.
Rebuilds can cost just as much as a replacement depending on the extent of the damage. The upper end of the range is typically for the replacement of a high end vehicle’s transmission or a complete rebuild after a major mechanical failure. Basic repair jobs are on the lower side, from $500 to $1500. For example, fixing a manual transmission often only requires a new clutch, a $1000 to $1500 job.
