1998 Chevy BlazerI need a transmission solenoid estimate. How much with parts and labor should changing 2 solenoids cost in transmission? Also, if you change 2, how likely is it that others might fail?


RESPONSE

Shift solenoids are around $20 each on amazon with the torque converter clutch solenoid around $30. They also offer a 5 Solenoid piece kit under $100. Just depends what direction you want to go. And lastly you are going to need some transmission fluid and a new filter and gasket. About 6 quarts of transmission fluid at around $3. A Transmission filter and gasket kit around $30.

Now we know a shop is going to charge a mark up on the parts and may also want a diagnostic fee and some extra shop supply fees.

Transmission Solenoid Estimate

  • Total Parts + 50% markup = $225
  • Total Labor @$100 per hour(shop rate) = $225
  • Diagnostic fee = $75
  • Shop supplies(rags, cleaners, etc) = $25
  • Tax @7% = $38.50

Total Cost Estimate for 2 solenoids = $588.50 (low end estimate, dealership may charge more)

Total Cost Estimate for 5 solenoids = $765.05

 


RESPONSE

50/50 chance of failure with other solenoids.

Labor time would be about 2 hours for replacing one solenoid. Add an additional 15 minutes for each additional transmission solenoid.
