I have a 2003 with 145000 miles slipping from 2nd to 3rd gear I have been pricing transmissions and have been seeing a big range $1800 to rebuild mine to $3700 for a remanufactured with a "heavy duty" torque converter. What is generally needed. Is getting mine rebuilt acceptable or is the issue just going to come back eventually. I'd like to get 300+ out of this van.
My 2000 is at 226000 and had its tranny done at 114000 and 128000 and hasn't had a issue since.
