Transmission Repair at NAPA Auto Care
Transmission repair can mean many different things. For an automatic transmission service, you are possibly due for a routine transmission fluid change. If you’ve noticed red spots on your driveway, you may need a transmission line repair. If your automatic transmission is hard to shift or won’t shift at all, the repairs get a bit more complicated. A worn-out transmission valve body can make for hard shifts, while malfunctioning shift solenoids can leave you stuck in one gear. If the torque converter has failed, then you won’t go anywhere either as the power has no way to get from the engine to the transmission itself.
The most common manual transmission issue is simply a worn clutch disc. Changing a clutch disc requires removing the transmission itself and resurfacing the flywheel. Sometimes manual transmission shift linkage gets worn out, making it hard to find the correct gear. For a complete transmission rebuild, the entire manual transmission needs removed and disassembled down to the last piece. Parts like bearings, synchronizers, gaskets and more small pieces are replaced to get things shifting smoothly again. Luckily, most manual transmissions can go years and tens of thousands of miles before needing a complete overhaul.
How Much Does Transmission Repair Cost?
Transmission repair can mean many different things depending on the transmission type. An automatic transmission repair could just mean a fluid flush and refill transmission service for $250 to $400. Or it could mean an entire rebuild for $4,000 to $8,000. A transmission leak repair may only cost $500 for a transmission cooling line or it could require a full rebuild if seals are damaged. For a manual transmission, a new clutch can range from $1,500 to $3,000. In many cases, the major cost of a transmission repair is labor.
All of these factors affect serpentine belt replacement cost. When it comes time for a serpentine belt service, the bulk of the cost is labor.
