Default What is an average price to have the transmission flushed for a 2001 Honda Accord?

I have a 2001 accord and it has about 133,400 mi on it. The car is just now beginning to jerk and slip really bad. I been looking for price quotes on the internet and I cannot seem to find any clear information. The only information that I've seen has been customers with the same complaints. I'm thinking that I need a transmission flush, but I don't want to break my bank account to have it done because I just replaced the timing belt. I really can't afford to have the entire transmission placed. Can someone please give me an idea of prices or any suggestions. THANKS! :-)

(Oh yeah, and if it helps I'm in the Carolina/Savannah surrounding area so if anyone knows of any decent mechanics asides from the dealerships please let me know...)

For dealer to do a drain and fill on your transmission runs in the neighborhood of $90. However since the transmission is slipping and jerking, the fluid may be low or you are getting a transmission that will need to be replaced. Without looking at it, I can't give a good answer but this is the best I have.

I don't think a flush will help your transmission. In fact most transmission guys that are on the up and up will tell you not to flush as will cause more harm than good.I have been driving over 41 years and have never hear any one fixing a slipping and jerking transmission with a flush. Hope this helps.

I wouldn't recommend flushing your transmission on a Honda. You can drain and fill it, and when you do be sure you use 3 quarts of Authentic Honda Automatic Transmission fluid. Because if you use another type there's a chance you'll experience the same symptoms your having now. Unfortunately once your transmission is slipping like it is now, and the fluid level is good, you may need to re-build or replace it. Good luck and hope this helps.
