Does anyone out here, know the aproximate cost to replace a 1997 Honda Automatic Transimssion? This is a 4cyl. Accord, and looks great, but says the tranny needs work, so I assume it needs replaced. Any ideas? Thanks

My mechanic down here charges about 300 bucks to do trannys. I'm guessing if you get it done at a dealership, prolly near the thousand range.

That must be just Labor I assume. I was looking for total cost for the new tranny and install. He wants to sell by Sunday and of course all the Tranny shops are closed till Mon.

A friend of mine bought one off of ebay for $500 I believe. The shop he took it to charged him $250 to put it in.

I'm guessing that's a D Series engine you have right? D series tranny's are pretty cheap on ebay. But yeah that was just labor...I've seen some tranny's on ebay for around 3 to 5 hundred

my girls dad got the 1999 honda accord. lx or something like that. $2,187 at the dealership. every thing new. they used the tranny case with new parts. my buck regal they wanted 1800 and up for my tranny. if it has alot of miles and has other problems let the car go. my ford might be on its way out. try lucas tranny fix its worth a try. 10 bucks at any auto store.

Well you gotta see how much they will charge in labor at different places, but the trannys you can get cheap...

That might be a warning, wanting to sell it fast, ask if he'll extend, if he gives some bs reason, i'd be careful.

front wheel drive trannys normally cost between 1500-2000 to rebuild...if anyone is charging "a couple hundred bucks" to rebuild a tranny, they are ful of ****. Now if they just need to service it, maybe tighten up the bands ... thats a different story

Are you f'ing serious? D-series?


:laugh:

Every time I read this section, I'm reminded of why this is the WORST place to ask for help with car problems. The D-series was used in the Civic. Never the Accord though. They've had EK, EL, ES, A, B, F, C, H, J, K, and N-series engines. But never D.

When it comes to transmissions, there is no 'usually'.

I have a 2000 accord 2.3L and the tranny itself is $3000 and labor is like $850.....
I just replaced it, it was slipping really bad.... I got honda to pay for the tranny and i just had to pay labor even tho the car had 130k miles on it. :)

if your gonna go through all that with your tranny just upgrade. try something like this it's about the same price as just replacing your tranny.

Get it diagnosed first....a lot of those accords had the shift solenoids go bad. bout 320 from the dealer and it will fix your problems if that is the problem.

A buddy of mine has a 1990 Accord and he had to redo his tranny. Being a certified Honda mechanic and all, he did it himself and by the time he was done, his cost was a bit over $1000, which seems right in line these days. If the dealer or a reputable tranny shop does it, the bill runs around $2000 for most modern transmissions.

Lordy, give me the days of a Powerglide in the junkyard for $75...LOL!

i had an oldsmoble ninety eight, year 87 cost around 800 to a new tranny. 2 stacks from a dealer sounds like a total rip. better shop around.

You comparing a trans in a 87 oldsmobile to a honda trans....yeah that makes sense.

Lol no, If its an accord it would be an F series tranny. Won't be less than 1200 anywhere you go.

meh... its a honda... working on it is like putting together legos, go to a junkyard and buy a tranny ( i wouldnt pay more than $400 for an F series) then do it your self
