Transmission fluid was leaking. Firestone said to repair ( transmission filter kit, remove and replace oil pan gasket/filter would be $253. Recommended I have the other transmission line fixed also.
There are two transmission cooler lines, one going to the cooler and one coming back from the cooler.
I just don't want to be taken advantage of. They told me that the one line is leaking now needs to be fixed. But wanted to give me the option of getting the other one replaced at the same time to save on labor. Because the other one is the same age. Total of about $560 to fix BOTH. Does that sound normal?
That price seems high to me. Try an independent shop.
That seems high to me to. Get a second opinion, but do get it fixed. A broken line will leave you stranded. If its leaking because its old then maybe getting them both done is a good idea, but if its leaking because its been rubbing on something then just the faulty one needs replacing.
How to stop transmission from leaking
Where is the leak originating? Pan gasket? Loose fitting? Damaged line?
