A transmission replacement can be one of the most expensive jobs performed on a vehicle. Ranging anywhere from $1,800 to approximately $3,500. A rebuilt transmission can cost just as much as a transmission replacement, depending upon the extent of the damage. The upper end of the range is usually for a replacement of a vehicle’s transmission or a complete rebuild. Basic repair jobs are on the lower end of the scale, ranging anywhere between $1,000 to $2,000. For example, repairing a manual transmission often only requires a new clutch, a $1,000 – $1,500 job.
