Manual Transmission Fluid Change Cost
Get an Estimate
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.

We advise changing the transmission fluid when any significant repair work is being performed on the transmission.
High-quality synthetic transmission fluid will help extend the life of transmission components.
Over time, the manual transmission fluid breaks down and becomes contaminated with moisture, which can lead to transmission damage from a lack of proper lubrication. Replace at the mileage/time interval recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
Noise from the transmission most often will not be resolved by a fluid change. Noise and/or incorrect operation of the transmission is normally a sign of a deeper mechanical problem.
