Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
If the transmission has an internal mechanical failure it will cause the issue you see here.In some cases this can be a band or clutch failure or more in depth failure that requires complete replacement.In some cases it can be rebuild for at least half the cost you were quoted to have it replaced.I show the transmission for this model from the factory at around $3030.00 and 6.6 hours labor to have replaced.Which worse case scenario around $4k for replacement.In some cases a dealer will mark up the cost of the parts which in turn can be why it is so high to have replaced.
Most of the time you can have it rebuilt or replaced by an independent transmission repair facility and they can usually get the transmission around $2k and cost up to around $2600 total for replacement.You might be able to find a used transmission cheaper around $1000 here http://www.car-part.com but then you would need to see if a transmission repair facility will install it for you.
This does sound like a transmission fault but its hard to say for sure from here if it needs replaced or rebuilt to correct this.
