How Much Does a Transmission Cost?

Transmission Cross Section Close-Up


The transmission cost varies from vehicle to vehicle, but typically, a transmission replacement ranges between $1,800 and $3,400 for brand-new parts. That is not including the additional labor costs (which can be between $500 and $1,200), taxes, and associated fees. When you need to replace your transmission, you can make your way to the Pride Kia of Lynn service centernear East Boston. We can help you choose the right transmission for your Kia vehicle, and our experts can install it for you with confidence. 

What Does the Kia Transmission Do?

Your car won’t be able to move without an operational transmission; it’s just as important as the engine. The transmission distributes the power among the tires properly, regardless of the drivetrain. When you shift gears, the engine and transmission momentarily disconnect to adjust to a new drive position. An automatic transmission will sense the change and automatically adjust the torque distribution in order to create a smoother acceleration when you step on the gas.

How to Extend the Life of Your Transmission

Because it is a hefty cost to replace your Kia transmission, you’ll naturally want to get the most out of the investment. Follow these tips to properly care for your car’s transmission: 

  • Check the Transmission Fluid: If you have low or dirty fluid, it can cause transmission problems. Either check the transmission fluid yourself on a monthly basis, or bring your car to our service center, and we’ll check it for you. 
  • Schedule Routine Service: Your transmission should be serviced roughly every 30,000 miles. You can schedule routine service at the Pride Kia of Lynn service center to ensure the transmission is in working order at every maintenance milestone. 
  • Add Another Filter to the Cooler Line: Your car’s transmission includes a filter that traps dirt and debris. You can add a second filter in the cooler line that will act as a second line of defense and keep the fluid cleaner for longer.
