1999 Voyager Van Transmission Change Labor Hours?

Just wondering what I should be looking at for just labor to have transmissions changed out in our 99 Voyager? Seems to vary a bit and want to make sure we are not overpaying.

    Thanks for your response. I was wondering the labor hours so I could figure for myself what is fair. Old Joe up the street gets about $40/hr where some dealerships and transmission shops get closer to $70/hr or more.

  • billj5625 Feb 09, 2009

    Rephrase this then, how many labor hours does it take, as in what does the book call for on how long they should charge for. That will help me gauge a lot better.

  • billj5625 Feb 09, 2009

    You sir, do not have a clue, please refrain from posting on this question any further. 3 to 5 hours to replace a FWD transmission. Thanks for trying to help but you have to be a young kid that knows nothing, or a superhero than can change his own trans that fast. I know for a fact that the book would call for at least 7 or 8 hours. But I wanted to know exactly and thought there might be someone knowledgeable on here since this is fixya.

  • billj5625 Feb 09, 2009

    Someone who knows something please help out. I didn't say what can it be done in, I said what does the book call for. Not looking for world records, just a flat rate hour based number of hours. If you were anybody at all you would know what it calls for in the book, which I know is not 3-5 hours for a complete transmission swap. wheels, knuckle, front axles, front cradle dropped, tranny out, tranny in, reverse process. I know how long it takes. I have done over 5 of my own transmissions in FWD vehicles alone. I didn't use to work 80 hours a week. Now I don't have time to do it myself and where I never paid labor on anything before I don't know when I'm getting screwed.

    I have been working on cars and been an enthusiast and drag racer for 14 years thank you.

  • billj5625 Feb 10, 2009

    A 35 year mechanic wouldn't be so defensive about his knowledge, or lack of in your case. Anyone who would make such a comment as assuming they could outrun anything I have without knowing what I have is a juvenile, not an adult, let alone a trade professional of 35 years. You're responses were in line at first because I didn't explain in detail that I was wanting an answer in hours, but your last responses are a waste and not helpful in the least. $250 to $450 estimate, real helpful genious. It's actually $350 to $700 for labor alone, ********.

  • billj5625 Feb 10, 2009

    Thank you very much tripleauto. I was thinking 6 to 8 hours in that range because the more expensive dealers were asking for up to $580 just in my local area and I have talked to others who paid up to $750. No one I know had it done for less than $350.

    A+ brother, just needed a solid number.


    Mrscary66613, with your mature screen name and vast world of knowledge I have no doubt you are what and who you say you are.

    BTW, my name aint Bill Jenkins because my junk is slow. Hit me up if you travel east since you are a such a big time racer. I have a couple cars for ya to try out for some money.

Transmission went out in a Plymouth Voyager Van 1999 is it worth fixing


A rebuilt tranny with labor will cost you @ $2500 to $2700. Did the tranny fail or possibly did the differential pin drop out? If the pin dropped out this repair will be @ $600.

I hope this may have assited you,

Would a transmission for a 1998 plymouth voyager work in a 1999 ?


Call a junk yard and ask them for an interchange on your transmission. Most likely any Chrysler product with the same body style and engine size, in the same late 90s years will be a match.

Have a van that shakes around transmission area when driving at certain speed. must let off gas and cruise below speed limit. Father referred the shake to something about a "C" something joint?...around...


What your father is describing is called a c.v. joint short for constant velocity joint. A new driveshaft (containing both inner and outer c.v. joints) costs approximately 100.00 new and the labor is 1.0 hours. Now you say van is this not an oldsmobile intrigue? If not that diagnosis might not be correct

Exploded transmission 48 hours after ATF flush


I see no correlation between the two events.  Things just happen on an old car.  I'd question spending money to fix the 11-year old car, or replace it with something newer and less miles.  I'd replace the car.

Is it expensive to fix the sensor that makes the speedo work


It's going to depend on WHO does the work and labor cost's.
The sensor should be in the transmission(speed sensor) and it may be reached by removing the transmission pan.NORMALLY they are located on the valve body in the transmission.
Call a few GOOD shops for quotes on cost's.Might as well change the trans,fluid while your there too.
