TIRECRAFT Tips: How To Save Money On Auto Transmission Repair

Auto transmission repair is one of the most expensive automotive services out there, but there are ways to control these costs, and we’re here to help you save.

Read on to learn a few ways TIRECRAFT helps reduce the costs of auto transmission repair, or contact your local TIRECRAFT to get a free quote on your next repair or maintenance service.

Auto Transmission Repair Can Be Costly—But There Are Ways To Save

Without a doubt, auto transmission repair is one of the more expensive automotive services out there.

According to a 2022 guide by AutoChimps, a full auto transmission repair typically costs between $1200 to $5000.

Of course, that’s only for a full-on replacement, but even in the case of a relatively minor component failure, such as a faulty transmission solenoid, you can expect to pay $250 for one, or around $400 to replace the entire solenoid pack.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to control these costs when you seek service at your local TIRECRAFT.

As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that is certainly the case when it comes to auto transmission repair. To keep yours running smoothly, TIRECRAFT technicians recommend:

  • Investing in routine maintenance. Transmission services should be booked after 2 years or 40,000km of driving, whichever comes first. Ask your TIRECRAFT technician to set up a service reminder next time you roll into the shop, and you’ll never have to worry about missing your maintenance deadlines again.
  • Checking your transmission fluid levels regularly. Just like your oil pan, your transmission has its own dipstick for quick fluid level checks. In addition to monitoring the fluid level, you should also pay attention to its color, smell, and consistency. If your transmission fluid looks darker than usual, feels gritty, or smells burned, bring it into your local TIRECRAFT as soon as possible. We carry a variety of quality transmission fluids, and our technicians can top-up, flush, or inspect yours as needed.
  • Shifting properly. Always make sure that you come to a complete stop before shifting between forward and reverse gears, or you could quickly rack up unnecessary wear and tear.

Additionally, in the event that you need to pay for an auto transmission repair, maintenance service, or part replacement, TIRECRAFT helps you save with:

  • One-stop shop convenience—Get everything you need for a quality auto transmission repair under one roof, so you don’t have to burn daylight and fuel driving all over town for the right parts or repair service.
