Question: What should a transmission service include and cost?

While recently having an oil change performed it was recommended that I have a transmission and fuel injector service performed. I have a '97 Acura Integra LS 3D Coupe with 83,000+ miles on it. What is the typical cost and what should be included in these services?

Transmission services vary. The traditional service is remove the transmission pan, replace the filter, reinstall the pan and refill the fluid. This gets between 4 and 7 quarts of fluid changed depending on the vehicle. In the last 5 or so years, transmission "flushers" have become more popular. This machine flushes out all the fluid, then the service is the same as before. this removes almost all the fluid and typically takes about 20 quarts of fluid to do. the flush is more expensive than a normal service.

I don't offer or recommend flushes in most instances unless the manufacturer requires it. regular tradition servicing is all that is typically needed to get service life out of the transmission.

As to cost, check our Repair cost Calculator for and estimate, but cost vary a lot from shop to shop so it's really best to call a few shops and ask their price and what you get with their service.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
