My 95 nissan pathfinder wont shift passed 2nd gear and i was told i need a new shift solenoid. He quoted the labor for $1500 at least and said he needed to pull the transmission to do it. Does this seem...
Sorry I don't know much about dollars or auto transmissions but having contracted a number of transmission repairs to specialists here in the UK I am qualified to tell you it is difficult to get a good auto transmission repair for less than about £1200 Sterling when the transmission must be removed.
That would make your quotation seem about right, though the "at least" part represents hidden dangers.
Once the transmission is out and stripped there is likely to be other things needing attention that would be foolish to ignore but new brake bands, clutch packs and oil seals aren't cheap and the cost would be in addition. If there is swarf or residue found when the oil pan is removed the dismantling would typically be complete and the cleaning and examination thorough.
The final cost is likely to be more than your old car is worth and you need to consider very carefully whether to spend.
You could of course ask local car breakers if they could supply enough cheap gear to convert to a sensible manual transmission.
