Buying a used transmission can be a tough choic.
You want to get one with a warranty and also covers the labor to replace the used transmission if it does go out.
I would start with your phone book call the local salvage yards see what they have to offer to you. Then do a Goggle search on the transmission to see what is out there nationaly for a used one.
Also there is other rebuilders who might do a better warranty for you.
Let me know if i can help more!

I have a 2005 chrysler 300 touring awd. The shifter won't move out of park. we had it towed to the dealership and were told we needed a shift assembly and it is on backorder What would you do in this...

i would rent a car, consider buying another car, or get to a junkyard and try a locate a serviceable used part for the dealer to install. Main problem is that it may well be on "back order" for years, so the third option may make the most sense. junkyards are now called recyclers, most have web pages, many of them have online inventory search and nationwide parts retrieval from other junkyards. the dealer will pitch a ***** about putting in a used part, and will not warranty the work, but it may make the most sense.

They will charge you 12 to 14 hundred at a dealer to rebuild it. You could also locate one at a junkyard and have it installed at an automotive shop. I'm not sure what you can find one for, but it will be cheaper than the dealer.

The power seat on my 2001 chevy blazer doesn't work

you can't realistically buy a new one so your choices are:

find a similar used non power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and bolt it in. then buy seat covers which more or less match the rest of your interior

find a similar used working power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and bolt it in. then buy seat covers which more or less match the rest of your interior.

find a used similar working power seat in a junkyard, unbolt yours and swap the internal working electrical parts from the one in the junkyard, then bolt yours back in.

When i start my car its hard to turn without giving it a lil gas and whats the most it could cost to fix

first check the level in the power steering pump.

labor depends on who does the work, dealer, shop, you. parts depends on where you buy the pump, dealer, parts store, junkyard. high to low in that order. i would get new or rebuilt, do the hoses as well as the pump and have it done at a shop instead of a dealer.

License Plate Light Holder broken off back door. How do I fix.

You can try and buy a new part at a chevy dealer. You can try and find a used part on ebay or at a junkyard, or you can scrap the whole thing and buy a generic screw on unit at advance or autozone.
