Gaskets are never expensive. The expensive part is the labor. This is why I hate transmission shops. But what can you do, specialists got the training in a special area. They deserve to make money.

Well i found out its the ecumelator something and they have to take the ecumelator cap off in order to change it and while theyre in there they are gonna see if my overdrive something needs replaced while the cap is off....150 to do the job 20 more if it needs a new thingy for over drive...and the reason its so much is he has to take the exhaust off to get to it...he said its so close to the exhaust thats what caused it to go bad....anyone know what im talkin about? Lol

The exhaust crosses right under the transmission between the bellhousing and the trans pan. However, there are heat shield right in that vincinity to keep some of the heat off. But that percentage is maybe 20% of the heat deflected. It would be smarter if they somehow had the exhaust cross over by the tailshaft instead.

I have never heard of an ecumelator myself. And it your trans is leaking from the exterior, what the hell does that have to do with the over drive...?

I'm leary of shops, they tend to make things up or say things that are not true....to take advantage of folks.

Im leary of shops...but the ecumilator is something lol and while they were doing what they were doing he asked if i wanted him to take the ecumilator cap off and see if something....sorry i forgot what he called it.....was hard it should be spongey he said and if it is hard it could effect my overdrive he asked if i had problems and i said not that i know of but he replaced it because it was a little hard...i dont know transmissions are a foriegn planet to me lol...but my heat shield is rusted off and the guys i know at mufflerman said they are junk when they do temps of the exhaust and the heatshield they are nearly identical and he said a heatshield isnt worth putting a new one on
