What is the Cost of Repairing a Transmission?
It finally happened. You are going down the road, and your gears start to slip, the transmission starts to grind and you know it’s time to either have the transmission repaired or pay for a new one. However, the cost of a transmission, repaired or replaced, is known to be really, really expensive. Read on below for a few tips on what a transmission repair will cost you.
One of the most common problems with transmissions is low fluid because the transmission is leaking somewhere. This is pretty much an easy fix for a mechanic, but if you let it go, it could lead to much bigger problems for you in the end.
The cost to have a transmission leak repaired can run you anywhere from $150 to $200, according to the mechanic you take the car too to have the leak fixed.
One of the only things you can do to maintain your transmission and not have to listen to the mechanic tell you that you need a new transmission is to have a transmission flush done whenever needed.
The cost of a transmission flush will run you around a $100, not bad considering the alternative if you choose not to have the flush done.
Rebuild or Replace?
This is where you are going to run into quite a bit of money if your transmission gets to this point. These options are suggested when the transmission just cannot be saved by repairs.
A rebuild averages $3800 and higher, while a replacement can cost you upwards of $4,000.
As you see, it’s much better to keep up and maintain your transmission and cheaper as well!
