Are you wondering, “How much is a transmission?” The transmission cost for your INFINITI vehicle varies, but typically, a transmission replacement can range between $1,800 and $3,400 for brand-new parts. Keep in mind that these figures do not include labor costs (which can be between $500 and $1,200), taxes, and associated fees. When your vehicle needs a new transmission, visit the INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife service center. Our team of factory-trained and certified experts will help choose the right transmission for your vehicle.
What Does the Transmission Do?
Your vehicle won’t move with a working transmission; it’s just as vital as the engine. Your vehicle’s transmission is what ensures power is distributed properly among the tires, regardless of the drivetrain. When you shift gears, the engine and transmission will disconnect in order to adjust to a new drive position. With an automatic transmission, it senses this change and adjusts automatically to the torque distribution for a smoother acceleration when you press on the gas.
Tips on Lengthening the Life of Your Transmission
When you replace the transmission for your vehicle, you will want to try and get the most out of that investment. Below are helpful tips on extending the life of your vehicle’s transmission:
Check the Transmission Fluid: Dirty or low fluid is the most common issue. Either check the transmission fluid yourself regularly or bring your car to our service center and we’ll inspect it for you.
Schedule Routine Service: Your transmission needs to get serviced every 30,000 miles or so. Schedule routine service at the INFINITI of Tacoma at Fife service center and make sure the transmission is working properly at every maintenance milestone.
Add Another Filter to the Cooler Line: Your car’s transmission includes a filter to trap dirt and debris. However, a second filter in the cooler line acts as a second line of defense that will keep the fluid cleaner for longer.
