Way too hard to say, although at 194,000 miles i'm thinking of some major repairs if there is a transmission problem...so it could actually be more like a replacement cost which would be maybe 3 times that. Certainly, at that mileage I would not attempt an internal transmission repair without just overhauling it...if that is what it is determined to be, failure-wise.
