Transmission Rebuild Thread *updated 11/24 now with price

*****UPDATE 11/24/2009
I worked out pricing on the rebuild
COST ON THE REBUILD is $950
What comes with the rebuild is a Honda OEM Rebuild Kit
Which Includes Replacement the Steel Clutch Plates
Torque Converter
New Transmission Filter
New Transmission Fluid
Flush of old trans fluid in the Radiator

If the hard parts on the transmission are bad it can cost more. So they will basically take out transmission, open it up and replace all the wear and tear parts on the transmission so it will be like new. I got a quote from AAMCO and they wanted between 2,800 to 3,200 -_- so this is a pretty good deal, let me know if you guys are interested and ill let them know your coming.



Hey guys, so basically as I'm sure you all know the Accord V6 Automatic Transmissions are one of the more notorious trannys to start slipping, kick and overall go bad prematurely.

Personally my transmission slips and kicks in most of the gears now, and its even gotten to the point where i threw a Check Engine Light for my Transmission. I'm currently talking to a shop that is helping me build my 240sx about setting up some kind of deal for rebuilding Accord 6th gen transmissions. They said if there are a couple more people interested that they can do a super low rate on it, so i wanted to know if there was anyone else that would be interested in getting their transmission rebuilt?

I was going to just buy a used transmission but i think it would be alot better to have a freshly rebuilt transmission with real OEM parts than try and get a different transmission that i wouldnt know the condition of. Other shops i got quotes for wanted some outrageous amount, around 3 grand. But the shop, Allison Auto Repair in Riverside said they could do it for a little over a grand for all parts and labor included and if we got enough people maybe even cheaper which is almost 2 grand cheaper than the other places i got quotes for.

So are any of you guys interested in going in on this? Let me know i plan on doing mine real soon and I want to see how many serious people there are.

Thanks guys!

Heres a couple shots of my car

theres this shop in the 626 in rosemead that does it for 1000 total and it takes about 1-2 days, Mechanics usually take the transmission out of cars and bring it to them and them fix it replace what needs to be and give it back or you can go directly to them. 1 year 12,000 mile warranty whichever comes first. They take apart the transmission and wash everything down and rebuild it.

Thats not too bad of a price, i was talking to the shop today they said base price would be $1000 for all parts and labor included and if we have a couple people it would go down from there. He said the process would take a couple days and that they would clean the transmission completely, replace the steel clutch plates that go bad, and the torque converter and transmission filter.

Sorry guys I'm gonna have to disagree

transmission rebuild = $1000

six speed swap $2-$3000


If you can find me a place that does a six speed swap for $1500 I will have cash in hand tomorrow.


That said. If you just need a daily driver and need it to run for a couple more years ( which was my case) than a transmission rebuild is your best option. It should last you at least 4-5 years if you change your tranny fluids once a year).

Yeah thats what i thought was more realistic, the CL-S 6 Speed Tranny alone is around 1500-2000 depending on if you can find it, plus all the small OEM parts you need to buy with it gets pricey.

I have changed my fluid but i have messed around too much with my car so the torque converter is going bad and im pretty sure the steel clutches inside my auto trans is gone because under heavy acceleration my RPM's drop before they go up.......

I'm in!

Just a few questions...

How long will they honor this price? I don't have any free time to drive to Riverside till the last two weekends of December (I'm from San Diego).

Will they have some sort of warranty?

They'll keep the price for a while its a long term deal i worked out with them, i told them there would probably be a quite a few of these to do since our transmissions are known to go out. As for a warranty ill have to talk to them about it. Usually its just if you have a problem immediately after the job go back and they'll work it out.
