Costs can be minimized by using a used transmission. However, much of the cost of transmission replacement is for labor. Consumers report paying $200 to $600 for a used transmission, depending on the mileage and condition of the vehicle the transmission is taken from.
The cost of a factory-remanufactured transmission generally ranges from $1,000 to $6,000 or more as of 2015 and comes with a warranty. This price range depends on the type of transmission needed. When putting a transmission in as a do-it-yourself project instead of hiring a mechanic, consumers report paying from $288 to $415 plus the cost of the transmission.
