That's right. Get a second opinion. It just takes a second to get another opinion. lol

Just spoke to Bob from Sparkys and he's said it might be the clutches/belts and it might need a new overhaul. Right not the tranny is sleeping according to him and the oil is burned. So it looks like it would cost me $1100-$1400 to fix the tranny.

He will be 100% sure ones he opens up the pan. Any input fellow jeepers :/

That is pretty darn pricey to rebuilt a 3 speed auto.
What are exactly the problems you were having with this auto trans?

There are no belts in that trans. Have they removed it yet? and. yeah, that is a good price for a cheapie trans job.

Cost me about $800 for a rebuild and at the time thought it was a good price. I did the R&R though.

well like I said earlier I swap out my stock 5speed for a 3 speed auto.
When I was done with the complete install, I drove it for a complete day, and as I was getting close home the RPMs went hight and I was barely moving forward, I put it in reverse and it started jerking backwars little by little. When it was in neutral, it had this scratching sound from the bellhousing... (at the moment tranny did felt a little warmer than the engine)

I parked it and towed it this morning to sparky's and that's where I stand at the moment

R&R = Remove and Replace (that's what it meant for our vehicle estimation software for Mitchell International.)

They have not removed it yet, he said that to be sure he had to remove the pan before removing it completely... I just don't know if I should let them keep on working on it, or just find another place. $1100 is still way out of my budget

To save money pull the trans yourself and have a trans shop do a bench job, would save considerable on labor money. Or buy a trans manual and the parts and rebuilt it yourself would cost you a whole lot less find a autotrans warehouse and price out the manual and hard parts. There's a place here in Ontario that sells all the goodies online.

Just remember to take your time and make sure all the parts you take out get put back in.
