How Much is a Transmission?

Transmission Change

Have you been searching the internet for “how much is a transmission?” The transmission cost for your specific car will be different from other vehicles and will vary depending on whether you have a gas vs. diesel engine. Typically, a transmission change will cost between $1,800 and $3,400 for brand new parts, but not including labor costs (which ranges between $79 and $189). Keep in mind that the taxes and fees, as well as the price for the parts, are not included. When you need a new transmission, make the short drive from Mount Vernon to Bronx to visit the Victory Mitsubishi service center.

What Does the Transmission Do?

The transmission makes sure that the power is distributed among the tires properly. When you shift gears, the engine and transmission will disconnect and adjust to a new drive position. With an automatic transmission, it senses this change and automatically adjusts the torque distribution for a smoother acceleration when you press on the gas.

How Often Should the Transmission Fluid Be Replaced?

This varies based on your vehicle’s model. Some Mitsubishi technicians recommend every 30,000 miles, and others will say to wait until about 100,000 miles. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the exact mileage. This falls under your vehicle’s warranty as long as you have kept up with the vehicle’s routine maintenance schedule.

How To Check Your Transmission Fluid

It’s essential to make sure you’re catching any potential damage before it becomes serious. This can be done by regularly checking your vehicle’s transmission fluid. Here are the steps below:

  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.
