Do the Transmission Repair or Replace it?

A transmission repair could cost a lot more, whereas repairing requires minimal parts and labor to bring your Toyota vehicle back to working and performing like normal. The transmission repair costs can range from $300 to $1,400. For example, if your manual transmission needs a new clutch, you can expect to pay around $800 to $1,500.

On the other hand, the transmission cost to replace is one of the most expensive repairs you can get. Replacements can range from $1,800 to $3,400. Depending on where you visit, labor charges typically range from $500 to $1,200. Here’s a quick rundown on the average transmission cost:

  • Remanufactured transmission – $1,300 to $3,400
  • Used/Salvage – $800 to $1,500
  • Rebuilt – $1,100 to $2,800

Rebuild or Replace: Rebuilds will cost around the same price as replacements they typically require rebuilding a luxury vehicle’s transmission or rebuilding from scratch after a total breakdown.
