The other day I went to the 2nd hand parts dealer. The trans cost ranges from US$ 200 to $250, installation cost 50 to 75. Rather cheap, but a friend told me they might be selling me traded-in trans. When you buy from them you give them the old one. So I went today to the scrap yard. Price ranges from $150 to 250, no installation. Price was cheaper and the trans was still attached to the engine and still mounted on the car. I have found around ten cars of the same model in a few minutes of searching on the yard, there were lots of them. The question now is which one do I buy. What should I look for when buying a used trans? Most of them have around 200K miles on them. Any tips would be very helpful to me. Tnx.
