Automatic or Manual ? Automatic- the least expensive method is to approach a local school with an Automotive program specializing in Automatic Transmissions , that is if time is not an issue - it may take several weeks or months - next cheapest method is a reputable Automatic Transmission rebuilder, have them install a rebuilt into your vehicle. I have had some junkyards (good ones ) do some good and reasonable work on automatics too. Ask around friends relatives etc Manual Trans - same basic answer - if time is not an issue try a good used transmission installed at a junk yard - Rebuilt manual transmissions can be very expensive depending on the vehicle (ie 4 wheel drive) Good luck

it's cheaper in the short run to have it rebuilt. but if the van is in excellent condition and you plan to keep it for a few more years, i'd replace it. i had mine replaced at a dealer for about $2000 at around 115K miles and it's guaranteed for 3yr/36K miles. I think the rebuilt was about $1500 with a 1 yr/12K miles. I'm now at 165,000 miles. knock on wood.

Well, It depends. Do you want a rebuilt transmission or a good used transmission? Are you doing the work yourself or hiring a mechanic for the labor? A rebuilt transmission (in my experience) will cost you more money than a quality used one. A used transmission shouldn't cost you more than $300-$400. If you replace it yourself, you will save yourself at least a few hundred bucks. I believe it will cost you about $200-$300 just to pull the old transmission out and put the new on in. Then there is the transmission fluid that needs to be replaced and filter that should be replaced but not required. That's $30 for the fluid and filter and about $30-$60 added to the labor costs.

You may need a new transmission, or you at least need to have that one rebuilt.
