How Much is a Transmission?

Changing transmission fluid

If you’ve run into car troubles on the St Charles roads, you might be wondering, “How much is a transmission?” The answer depends on a number of factors. Your vehicle make and model play a role in your transmission cost, as well as whether you need a full replacement or rebuilding. Generally speaking, a transmission replacement ranges between $1,800 and $3,400 for brand-new parts. Don’t forget to add in labor for another $500 and $1,200 – as well as Geneva taxes and fees. Why is transmission cost so high? Find out with the service department at Biggers Mazda.


What Does a Transmission Do?

Your transmission is a vital part of your car’s performance, which is why it can be a pretty costly repair. But without a properly working transmission, your car simply cannot run – no matter whether you drive a car, SUV, truck, or van. That’s because your car transmission distributes the power to each of your tires. Automatic transmissions shift gears independently, disconnecting the transmission and engine temporarily to adjust to a new drive position. Manual transmissions do the work at your command, which is why you need a clutch to shift from one gear to the next.

How Can I Keep my Transmission Safe?

No one wants to spend time and money at the shop fixing their transmission, so if you want to stay safe on the Schaumburg roads, we recommend following these easy tips:

  • Check Your Fluid: Your transmission fluid plays a huge part in the performance of your vehicle, so we recommend checking your fluid levels every month. And if your transmission fluid levels are low or if your fluid is dirty, schedule your service with Biggers Mazda.
  • Schedule Your Service: Around every 30,000 miles, it’s a good idea to get a transmission check. This can be bundled into your other routine maintenance services to save some time at the dealership.
  • Add a Filter: While your transmission will have a filter installed, you can also add a second filter to the cooler line to keep your system extra clean.
