I just found the cheapest used transmission like ever hahha $400 with free shipping i will give you the link to it. but it is front wheel drive and those are very very difficult to replace its about 8 hours of labor time at a shop so your looking over 5-600 dollars on top of the transmission plus removal and gaskets and fluid so your looking at least $1200 total with a cheap transmission. transmissions range from 400-1300 dollars. I hope this helped

Okay, So i got a 97 grand am GT 2.4L 5 speed and the tranny is acting up. It goes into reverse and first fine but then it wont get it to go into second. You can force it in but it will pop out and grind....

I suspect you have a bent shifting fork, located inside the transmission. Some trannys are easier than others to change out the shifting forks while others are a nightmare , but it is a major job with a lot of steps required to do .As transmissions can be very difficult and are complex I would recommend checking on the price of a used or rebuilt one - or getting an estimate from a tranny shop to fix yours. You can greatly lower the cost by pulling and re - installing the tranny yourself. Make sure the shop you choose has a warranty - it's easy to do this job wrong and mess up the tranny!!!

I have a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am with a 2.4L 5 speed manual transmission. There are 4 gears in the transmission that need replacing. What is the model of this transmission and where do I get replacement...

Take the transmission out to get the exact model, because you can never tell for sure otherwise. And it is very unlikely 4 gears are actually out. More likely there is something wrong with the linkage, in or out of the transmission. But if that many gears are actually out, get a used one from salvage, because the bearings and everything will be bad as well. Used will cost less than parts alone.

When on a long trip the tranny shifts hard after driving for a while the next day its fine

being a GM 2000 model, Im sure its has many miles, correct me if im wrong. Take it to a GM facility and have the transmission flush and filter change, Older high miles car on domestic car is a common problems. If you have close or 100k miles, have those thing done ASAP. It will solve some of your problems and will give you tranny a bit longer life.dirty or clog tranny filter can cause the problems and shorten the life of the transmission. being a 2000 model, tranny filter should be change every 50k miles. Only newer model have 100k miles maintenance free transmission. hope that help some
