My tranny has around 136,000 miles on it. I just replaced the motor with a new 1.9L that has 16,000 miles on it. Great deal for only $350. Now, I need to replace the tranny.

Where do I get one from? (not junkyards) and how much should I pay for a rebuilt/new one? I'm not good with car information so any help would be appreciated.

I have a 1994 LX 1.9L automatic.

I'd look around for a local transmission shop. Around here, they have better deals than a regular parts store because that's all they sell. And they are generally more knowledgeable. As far as which kind, there are soooo many rebuilders out there I don't know where to start. Just shop around and get the one with the better warranty.

Try a ATRA member shop. Do NOT go to AAMCO or other similiar chain store. http://www.atra.com , look for member shops.

If you live anywhere near Baltimore try Glen Burnie Automatic Transmissions on Crain Hwy.

A Jasper Transmission might be a good alternative. I have a Jasper engine in mine and it's probably better then the one that came with the car (for $4000 it better!).

I live in Atlanta, Georgia. Someone at ERDT said that I can use a Mazda transmission....I'm assuming from a Protege. I'm also guessing that Mazda makes a better transmission than Ford does, considering it is a Mazda part anyways.
