Manual Transmission Repair

If you have a manual transmission, usually a bad transmission means you need a new clutch. Clutch replacements can cost anywhere from several hundred to over $2,000, depending on the year, make and model. High-performance cars and heavy duty trucks clutch replacements will likely cost more than your average compact economy sedan.

Automatic Transmission Repair

The cost to fix a bad automatic transmission is much higher than that of a manual transmission. Simple automatic transmissions will be the least expensive to fix, with complex CVT and dual-clutch, paddle-shifting gearboxes running far more costly. When it comes to automatic transmission repair, you have three options: (1) Replace it with a new transmission. (2) Replace it with a used transmission. (3) Have the transmission rebuilt.

Used transmissions will be the least expensive but riskiest route to take, as you can never be sure how well the used gearbox will work. Cost-wise, a new transmission will likely be the most expensive, costing several thousand dollars. A complete transmission overhaul and rebuild can be a bit cheaper than replacing with new, but you’re still potentially looking at anywhere from $1,000 to up to $6,000.
