how many hours does it take to change a flywheel on a 1999 chevy suburban 5.7 L Automatic trans.

Asked by May 02, 2014 at 11:37 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have taken it to an Auto repair shop and they showed me where teeth on the flywheel are missing so I know I need to get the work done. One play told me it $530 for parts and labor another place told me its $550 just for labor, He said it takes 8 hour to deal with the trans. any thoughts?

KeIt only takes 2 to 3 hours to change a flywheel mine is a 1997 and I did mines on the ground without a lift to raise my truck up on.. If I had a lift about an hour and a half no more than 2 but shops make their money through taking their sweet time

Those prices seem spot on for R&R of the trans. The actual install of the flywheel is nothing. If you go to a trans shop maybe you can get a better deal but that is normally the going rate

I just was quoted 820 because of the 4x4

Hello, No that is a bit high...that tranny/transfer case is one of the easiest out there to pull and have access to the flywheel... That price "here" would get you an engine change... It should be no more than 4 hours...start to finish w/a fluid and filter change on the tranny...no fluid, nor maintenance required on the transfer case. Four Hours @ 100 doll yers per hour = $400.00... The fluid and Filter change...100...and the FlexPlate...100 at most retail... Good Luck, Hope this Helps, ATM
