Assuming you have a 00-03 Impala, you're probably looking at about $500 to fix it yourself if the fourth clutch shaft is the problem. That would cover your fluids, solenoids, clutch shaft, and a few gaskets.

If you have problems during the repair, like I did, you're probably going to spend closer to $800-1000 dollars.

I was quoted $1400 for the shaft replacement at a transmission shop.

If it were me, I'd get a basic rebuild from Dave at tripleedgeperformance.com...cost about what a normal rebuild would cost but he is arguably the best in the biz for these transmissions.

Also TimKing over at clubgp.com does good work..you can get a good built trans from him for something like 1200 shipped and either install it or bring it to a shop and have them swap em.


Cost of a normal rebuild and labor is probably around 1800 (at least around here)..at the dealer you're looking at a lot more
