How Much Does Transmission Repair Cost?

How much does it cost to repair a transmission? Well, this likely will not surprise you, but it depends on the type of repair required. Here is what you should know about transmission repair costs.

Most Transmission Repairs Are Adjustments Or In-Car Repairs.

An in-car repair is any repair that can be made while the transmission remains in its place within the chassis of the vehicle. The parts of your transmission that can be accessed without having to remove the transmission are called accessible parts. As you might well image, replacing an accessible part is easy compared to other types of transmission repairs. A simple adjustment or a replacing of an accessible part will not cost a lot of money as far as transmission repairs go.

If You Have A Transmission Leak, It Needs To Be Resealed.

One of the most common types of transmission repairs is an exterior seal replacement. Your vehicle needs transmission fluid (or oil) to run properly. There is no transmission problem that cannot be caused by low levels of transmission fluid or poor quality of transmission fluid. If you notice patches of reddish liquid underneath your vehicle after you park, you have a transmission fluid leak. That requires an inspection.

The first step in a reseal is a lift inspection. If the transmission technician can easily identify the leak on an external seal or gasket and everything else about the transmission seems to be running smoothly, then it is a simple procedure to reseal the problem area. However, if the front seal needs to be replaced, then the transmission must be removed from the body of the vehicle to gain access to it. This type of transmission repair will take more time and thus cost more money.

Sometimes A Transmission Requires A Complete Overhaul.

A complete overhaul is also known as a transmission rebuild. This is the costliest type of transmission repair. These types of transmission repairs are required when the transmission is so damaged, that most of the parts need to be replaced or when there is a major problem with the transmission like internal noises that cannot be pinpointed.

A complete overhaul involves the removal of the transmission from the car and then taking it apart to inspect every component for damage. Components that are still in working order are cleaned and inspected and damaged ones are replaced, as are any parts that have friction surfaces, such as bands and clutches, all the seals and gaskets, and usually the torque converter, as well.
