Anyone here had to replace their automatic gearbox? How much did it cost you and how many miles were you at?

Not that I'm worried or anything......... :wink:

i did it! cost me $1000 exactly. I had hookups though, my tranny blew up at 183k and i put a new one in that has 60k out of a '96 9000 turbo. My motor was rebuilt at 158k and my TCS was comletely redone at 178k. Next step is a new (bigger) turbo.

Just drop in a new car and you're good to go.

Mine went at 120K, and was replaced with a recon unit with a year's guarantee. So far so good (7K) except for a vibration at idle which wasn't there before and cannot be cured even after replacement of all four engine mounts. Vibration of this kind has been discussed in this forum before, and seems only to happen with an auto box.
