    It all depends on what you need done..look around for estimates from other competition to see if the price quoted is in the ballpark..one thing for sure..they back up their work.can't beat that..

    Advance transmission on Queen. Larry's a very good guy and very fair in his pricing.

    I say stay away from that palce on Queen. Charged me for things he didn't do and caused $2000 damage to my vehicle that he would not come good for. Rebuilt my tranny and when they reinstalled it they jamed it back in place and shorted out a wire which in turn blew all my tranny sensors and my computer. All I can say is stay away.

    General first off what kinda vehicle is it?

    if its ford.. I suggest dave bouchard hes in the industrial court..

    and well depends what has to be done.. I Just had the tranny flushed on my truck.. and my husband went to three different places who flush and only mister T had the proper end for the truck..

    I ended Up I bought all factory oils filters everything before getting it done from the dealer.. and that was 140 buxs.. then took it to mr t and they charged him just under 200 to flush it with our products...

    hp2, I was warned by my above reccommended shop NOT to get a tranny flush because it only loosens up junk in the thing that will cause it to quit in 6 months.

    Please keep us posted!!!!

    we heard that to barry.. but its was acting up so it was a chance we took... and ends up its an 01 and a very common problem with them... our plans were to flush once then flush again in a couple months to get the crap out...

    and if they flush properly they do not get all the fluid out of the torque converter.. so its not all new fluid in there at first.

    no doubt duffy, i have a story i can tel but it'll be deleted off here if i do lol
    take it to Reg on the corner of wallace and goulais, he's excellent and pretty fair price too
    he'll take if for a test drive around the block and almost 100% the dagnostic form that and give you an estimate
