Default Cost to rebuild a Honda transmission?

The manual transmission in our '98 Civic died on my husband on his way home from work today. He heard a "clunk" and then the car wouldn't go into gear. I'm calling the local transmission shop tomorrow to get a quote, but I'm just curious about the price. I know depending on where you live, the type of car, etc. determines the price. I just want to be prepared for tomorrow when I call, lol Anyone have a ballpark estimate? It's a '98 Honda Civic, manual transmission, 160k miles on it.

Also, if this were your car, at what point would you say it's so expensive that it wouldn't be worth it? In other words, if it cost $1,200 would you bother having it rebuilt, or would you just go buy a $1,000 junker? The car is otherwise in really good shape.

I also asked this question on the repair board, and someone suggested buying one from a junkyard. How do you know you're getting a good one though? I'm just sick about this. I LOVE my car and other than a clutch, it hasn't had any problems.

Finding one from junkyard should be your first choice and your local transmission shop should be able to say if it's working and should help you find it and get it... If you like your car and don't have enough money to buy another car that is decent just go with it... If you have money for a new car lots of good cars are priced under 20 thousand dollars that come worry free...

getting a rebuild will cost you alot more than getting one from the junkyard for under $100

all 92-00 civic are compatible but if u happen to find one from 92-95 ex,si and 96-00 ex those are the better transmission for same price

I usually don't buy from the local junk yard. I purchase most used goods on craigslist. They overprice the parts in junk yards and when buying from an individual there's room for negotiating. If you sourced out the transmission yourself and found a reputable mechanic that specializes in Hondas then you can be looking at a job for as cheap as $500.

I do find it odd for a Honda transmission to crap out at 160k.
