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

For me it would only take about 4 minutes. That's to get your information, and your keys. Then I would let my mechanics jump right on it. They will brake it down, and be done in an hour n half, maybe quicker then that. I will do it for $170 bucks. You gotta buy the part though
