1990 Jaguar Vanden Plas Q&A

1990 Jaguar Vanden Plas Question: transmission repair

What is the relative cost difference of buying a rebuilt transmission for 1987 jaguar Vanden Plas and paying for installation versus complete repair of shot transmission. -
Answer 1
This is a very specific question that is probably best answered by a Jaguar and/or transmission shop that will perform the work. My sense is the installation of a re-manufactured trans is better, and it should come with a multi year warranty too. Look for an ATRA shop near you and see if they can help: http://bit.ly/ATRA_Info -
Answer 2
I had mine rebuilt for 2800.00, that is with a life time warranty included transferable to the family for the life of the car or until I run out of relatives. The dealership was going to charge me ~4000.00. They let me know that they contract it out to another shop anyway. It happened to be Amco. -
