Question about 1997 Mazda 626
My transmssion has been slipping between 1st and 2nd gear, and other day had to have towed to transmission shop before shop was open.
They have not opened it up but say diaognostics indicate a problem between 3rd and 4th gear? Car has 155,000 miles on it.
They say 3 - 4 hours to get in and find out what the issues are?
And over the phone rough estimate $3000.00 to $4500.00 verbal rough quote?
Car is maybe worth $3500-$4500.00 if running condition.
Should I even let them open it up labour rates in this area are about $100.00 per hour.
Is it worth getting it opened up or should I see if can get a rebuilt transmission and replace?
This car has always shifted a bit hard.
