Normally you don't really rebuild a manual transmission unless it is showing signs of mechanical failure like the synchronizers are worn so it doesn't shift or you have bearing noises internally. A way to somewhat tell is to do a fluid drain and look for metal on the drain plug and in the oil. There will be some but if it comes out looking like a glitter ball then you may want to have it looked at. As for the cost, that depends a lot on where you are and what parts need to be replaced. If you replaced all the bearings and synchro's the kit runs about $600.00 so with labor a rebuild would probably run about $1,500.00, not including removal and replacement. To replace it with a re-man unit you would be looking at about $2,000.00 for the transmission itself. Now if you have a shop that does them all the time do it, they would likely replace just the worn or damaged parts so it could be less money.
