    These are ESTIMATED diagnostic times. Time varies based on the condition of the car i.e. corroded fasteners, modifications, etc.....
    Complete Assembly With Transfer Of Parts B 9.4
    NOTE
    To R&R Driveplate, Add B 0.2
    To R&R Torque Converter, Add B 0.2
    To Flush Cooler Lines, Add B 0.6

    It does not include any diagnostics, leak test.
    For computer diagnostic add 1.8
    Fluid leak diagnostic add .5
    Rear crank seal add .7

    10.5 hours average cost up to $1200 to R&R the transmission provided buy you not to including fluids at $19 a gallon to repair the transmission is $3500 to $4100 to purchase a reman transmission is $4100 to $4800 all these quotes provided to me by certified mechanics in the Orange County California area if you decide to buy a used transmission from a salvage yard please buy one from a local salvage yard that you can visually see the item I purchased one and all the identification and serial number tag was removed now I am dealing with the local authorities in Florida and Orange county Thanks to AIM auto salvage For no cooperation in this matter
