2002 Cadillac Escalade Needs New Transmission

We have and Escalade that we like and don't want to get rid of it.  It has 140,000 miles on it. We just put $3000 into it last year and now the Caddy dealer wants to  charge $4000 for a new transmission.
Should we take it somewhere else to get the transmission fixed?  Is $4000 too much?
If we have it fixed, do you have any experience with Escalades and what might break next?  Not sure if it is worth putting more money in now.
Oil is changed on schedule. All scheduled check-ups done on time. Body in great condition.

If the vehicle fits your needs, and it still looks good 140,000 miles is only a number. If you love it, consider the 4000 an investment . A 2009 Escalade is surely going to cost a few bucks more :)). As far as what might break next, its a piece of machinery. Seems like you stay on top of things, As far as whether you should go to the dealer. It is electronically controlled. Bring to someone who knows what they are doing. The grief with a sub-par repair along with a large expense, is real tough to deal with. I say stick with the dealer. Good Warranty

2002 Cadillac Escalade transmission slipping, what's the cause?


When a transmission slips- it already has internal
damage & you driving it that way, leaves only one option

A $4,000 rebuild

Then maybe more diagnostics, to find out what started all that

Being a 2002 --it is well worn out anyway

If you failed to change the fluid every 2 or 3 years since new

That maybe why it failed also,most common reason for trans
failure

My 2002 cadallic escalade is leaking oil I don't eant just anyone to drop my transmission to fix it, but is it worth it at the age of the car?


This all depends on how much oil you are loosing and how many miles are on it, if you like the truck and it is a bad oil leak then repair it , but if it has a lot of miles and needs other costly repairs then do not, this is a job that will run about 600.00 depending on what is leaking. for example is it the rear main seal?
the transmission may be on the way out who knows, thinking over and go from there.

My 2003 cadillac escalade ext stalled yesterday & wont start. If it does start up it just runs for a second & shuts off. It has power & is deffinately not the battery. It turns over & seems...


This sounds to me like the antitheft security system. If the computer doesn't read the transponder frequency coming from the key, it goes into anti theft and shuts down the starter and/or the injectors. If it starts for 1 to 5 seconds and then shuts down, its probably this. Read up about this on this link, it gives you symptoms and causes, plus a "do it yourself" solution if you decide that this is the problem. I've been dealing in GM vats-passlock-passkey securities for quite a while now. From your description, I'd guess this is the issue. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Transmission on 2004 escalade with 100000 miles seem to be slipping when shifty into gear started in 2nd to 3rd know it's happen 1 at to 2nd but not all the time


These are common symptoms and usually mean the worse.IT is possible you have a bad pressure control solenoid but this is rare.I would start with pulling codes if any are present.Good Luck.

2002 escalade- the transmission doesnt want to shift until high rpms also the overdrive wont work at all


Sounds like a solenoid or two in the transmission is dirty or defective. Needs a transmission rebuild to rectify it, or a replacement transmission that has lower miles or a newer transmission that doesn't have this problem.

One can try a transmission flush and refill, which costs about $100 or so, but that may not fix the problem. A rebuild is much more expensive, but is the way to go if you plan on keeping the vehicle for years to come.
