I 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?
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
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.
