I have been watching this newsgroup for a while and it seems there are some
very knowledgable people in here. I'm looking for some advice.
I have a '95 Jimmy full-time 4x4. The transmission went yesterday (slipping
terribly, burnt fluid, particles in the fluid...). I'm trying to decide
what to do.
I took it to a local transmission repair shop (seems reputable - recommended
by both a service station owner I know well and by the local GM dealer).
Was told it needs a full rebuild. I agree. He quoted me $1600 with a 12
month/12,000 mile warranty. Is this a good price?
I've also seen rebuilt transmissions on e-bay for as little as $650 plus
shipping from a place called Phoenix Remanufactured Transmissions. This
would put me at about $800 and I install the transmission myself.
I've also found a used transmission that I'm told was rebuilt 28,000 miles
ago (who knows?) for $400. Again I would install it myself.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I live in State College, PA
if anyone knows of a good reasonable shop.
