How Much is a Transmission?

Mechanic Working on Transmission

Transmission costs will vary across different types and brands of vehicle, but generally it can cost between $1,800 and $3,400 for a brand new transmission (not including labor costs which can range between $79 and $189). There may also be charges for taxes and fees, as well as additional parts that go along with replacing a transmission. Learn more about transmissions below, and how to avoid transmission problems in the future. When you’re in need of a new transmission, make your way to the Land Rover Charleston service center near Huntington.

What Does the Transmission Do?

When you shift gears, the engine and transmission disconnect to adjust to a new drive position. With an automatic transmission, it senses this change and automatically adjusts the torque distribution in order to create a smoother acceleration when you step on the gas. This complicated system is engineered with a certain degree of finesse, which makes it one of the more expensive components to rebuild or replace.

How Often Should the Transmission Fluid Be Replaced?

Transmission fluid replacement intervals can vary widely–anywhere between 30,000 miles and 100,000 miles–so be sure to consult your owner’s manual for model-specific recommendations. This service may be under warranty, as long as you’ve kept up with the regular maintenance schedule. Sticking to this repair schedule can prevent transmission issues down the road.

How To Check Your Transmission Fluid

It’s easy to check your vehicle’s transmission fluid regularly to catch potential issues and avoid thousands of dollars in damage:

  1. Turn the car on to warm up the engine.
  2. Find the transmission fluid dipstick. Use your owner’s manual if you’re having trouble finding it.
  3. Remove the dipstick and put some of the fluid on your finger. Move it around between your forefinger and thumb. This liquid should be mostly clear with a pink hue.
  4. Make sure the fluid doesn’t give off a burnt smell or look dirty. If this is the case, bring your model in for a replacement.
  5. Wipe off the dipstick with a rag and put it back in place.
  6. Pull it out again to check the levels. Add more if it’s under the “Full” marking.
  7. Using a funnel, add more fluid until it reaches the “Full” marking.
