How much am I looking at for a new transmission?
My '97 only has 115k on it but has recently been taking its sweet time shifting. I bought this as a daily driver for the next few years (and then a weekend truck) from a guy that owns a marina so I'd imagine its been used to haul some heavy stuff. If the transmission were to go out in the next couple years what would I be looking at price wise to replace it? What about for an upgraded one? I will be putting a chip on it in the next few months which I hope will help.
We used to have a '97 2500 suburban with an Allison that pulled two heavy boats al over the place throughout its life and it was awesome. Is there a kit out there to put an Allison on a PSD?
I am also going to change the transmission fluid and filter this spring as I am not sure the last time it was done or if it had been done.
