Transmission repairs: are they expensive? How do you avoid transmission repairs? Learn more about pricing for transmission repairs and tips regarding preventative maintenance!
It indeed can become expensive to service your transmission. Transmission repair services can range in price depending on the scale of the job required. A repair can range from $300 to $1,500, while a new transmission can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $3,500. Fortunately, there are several preventative maintenance services available to assist in preventing further damage. Here are our top picks for scheduled maintenance services we recommend you take advantage of:
Transmission flush - A transmission flush removes dirty and old automatic transmission fluid (ATF) and replaces it with new fluids. There can also be a pile-up of grime which can lead to worse problems occurring. We recommend having your vehicle serviced every 30,000 - 50,000 miles or 3 - 5 years for a transmission flush.
Filter replacement - Replacing your oil filter can have several benefits, including cleaner and more effective oil running through your engine. Oil filters range from $35 to $75, making this scheduled maintenance a more affordable option. We recommend replacing your oil filter with an oil change every 3,000 miles or six months.
Pan Gasket replacement - Having a cracked or broken pan gasket seal can cause your engine to leak essential fluids! Bring your vehicle to our shop today to inspect your pan gasket for any possible leaks or cracks!
