Just for reference - This past spring my neighbor had his 2005 transmission replaced with a rebuilt unit at a independent Honda shop for $1500 with a 1 year/unlimited mileage warranty. The shop is a couple ex-Honda Platinum Level techs that opened their own place together. They said they replace several a year and the ones they use do not have the common weakness that the OEM ones had from the factory, whatever that is.My trans has been slipping only when cold for the past two monthsx I've been saving to replace the trans
Have you tried replacing the fluid yet? It may help a lot.Just a update, tranny is still holding up, but it still slipping a few times before it warms up. I'm at 3,000 saved and I'm hoping 4k will cover the tranny and labor. Unfortunately I'm going to use Honda for a replacement. My local dealership quoted me 2900 for the tranny alone, I hope that's a new price or I'm going with aamco/jasper
I read all the replies and followed through with them, but not installed just for the transmission, its around 4000 installed$2900 sounds about right for a factory rebuilt installed by a stealer (warranty rate) based on the 2nd gen tranny rates. BUT, you should really pay attention to the replies to your own thread and post some much needed details for better help on here.
Really? I don't see you mention your model year or miles. Neither did you report back as to if you're low on ATF. Neither did you report back as to if you replaced the ATF or not as that was one of the recommendations. All of these are from people asking you questions since you posted. To get better help, you gotta provide all the information/details is all I am saying.I read all the replies and followed through with them, but not installed just for the transmission, its around 4000 installed
