My car is now at a Saturn certified repair shop. If the transmission is out, I wanted to know your estimate so I can know if I'm being gouged.

Do you
have the same problem?

If you don't know okay. If you do know, how much more money will it take to get the answer?

I was trying to get some info to see if it sounded like you needed a transmission just trying to get you as much info as I can. Iam a factory trained saturn service tech so iam very experniced with issues those transmissions have. It just comes to a stop isnt much info on what its doing?Also to replace it would all depend on what they did like if they replaced it with a ised transmission or a remanufactured one etc.I also need your zip code.I will get you answers iam not trying to answer your question with a question just trying to help you with more then just heres what it cost.I have had people ask questions about how much to replace this or that and asking them a few questions found out they didnt need to replace it all.

I need you to start your own question that's just our policy your answer will probably be different then there's. Plus its less confusing when you have only one question per question. For people answering questions and users searching for answers.
