How much is it to fix a car transmission?
I’ve been having some issues with my car recently so I had my mom look at it. She said it’s an issue with my transmission and that I might be better off just getting a new car. How much is it to get a car’s transmission repaired?
Fixing a car’s transmission is usually very expensive, ranging from $400 to $900 depending on the make, model, and severity of the issue. If it needs to be replaced, you could end up spending upwards of $4,000. So, your mom was probably right in suggesting that you just get yourself another car (unless this car is relatively new).
If you currently don’t have the cash to buy a car outright, you can look into** leasing a vehicle or even taking out a car loan**.
- Leasing will allow you to have a newer vehicle with lower monthly payments than a car loan for the same vehicle.
- Buying a car with a loan may be a good choice if you have your sights set on an inexpensive new or used vehicle. But if you buy a used vehicle, you may be on the hook for other expensive repairs in the near future.
Make room in your budget for a new ride by saving money on other car expenses—like your car insurance. The Jerry app makes it easy.

How do you clean out your car radiator?
My car has been acting up a bit recently. My father, who is a retired mechanic, said the radiator needs to be cleaned out and flushed. Typically, my dad would have just done it for me, but he no longer lives in the area and said I should be able to do it myself. I know a bit about cars, but how do you clean out your car’s radiator?
