How Much is a Transmission?

Depending on how long you’ve been driving your vehicle in Corona, you may someday need to know: how much is a transmission? The answer will vary between makes and models, but the average transmission cost typically ranges between $1,800 and $3,400 for a brand new component. Keep in mind, however, this number doesn’t factor in the cost of labor (usually between $500 and $1,200), sales tax, and any additional associated fees you may pay. Searching for a dependable transmission replacement in Murrieta? Turn to the service center at BMW of Murrieta. Before scheduling an appointment with us, you can learn more about transmissions down below.

What is the Function of the Transmission?

Your car’s transmission should be regarded with just as much importance as the engine; after all, you wouldn’t be able to drive anywhere in Riverside without it! Proper power distribution among your tires is carried out by the transmission, no matter what type of drivetrain your car employs. And that’s not all the transmission does – when you shift gears between drive positions, the transmission disconnects from the engine to adjust. But if your car has an automatic transmission, it will sense the change and automatically respond by adapting the distribution of torque as necessary to deliver seamless acceleration when you press the gas.

Get the Most Out of Your Transmission With These Tips

A new transmission cost is on the higher end of the maintenance a vehicle requires over its lifetime. As such, Ontario drivers will want to do everything they can to make the most of their investment. Keeping these transmission care tips in mind can help you achieve a long transmission life:

  • Regular Transmission Fluid Checks: Low and/or dirty fluid is one of the most common issues that can lead to early transmission failure. Thankfully, there’s a simple solution. Once per month, you should check the level and quality of your transmission fluid, or bring it to our service center for a quick inspection from a BMW technician.
  • Follow the Maintenance Schedule: Routine vehicle maintenance includes transmission service every 30,000 miles or so. Keep up with your maintenance schedule to rest assured your transmission is receiving the care it needs.
  • Additional Filter for the Cooler Line: Every transmission includes a filter to catch dirt and debris that will inevitably make their way in as you drive. Did you know you can have a second filter added in the cooler line? A second filter can work double-time to keep your transmission fluid cleaner for longer.
