Average Transmission Rebuild/Fluid Change cost?

What are some average prices for a trans rebuild in your area? How about a fluid change?

I don't trust myself to do a rebuild, but hey I have said that many times since I got my XJ about all sorts of stuff. Fluid change, maybe. I need some guides and i will decide once I read em through.

He wasnt saying do a rebuild. he was saying get a junkyard tranny and swap it in. Personally i wouldnt bother. To much work for a tranny that may not work. It may last another 5 years. Never know but im not willing to take that chance. Fluid and filter would run about $50 if you do it yourself. $100 to have a shop do it.

Does that price include R&R (removal and replacement) of the tranny in the vehicle, or is it just the pure rebuild?

Does that price include all new bushings in the trans? How about a new torque converter?

I assume the price includes all new seals, clutches, and bands, correct?

I the answer to all of the above is "YES", you got a SMOKING deal.
