Transmission Trouble?

I’m not sure if I am actually experiencing transmission problems or what. I was told that he horrible noise that sounds like the bottom of my car will fall out is the transmission. It will cost approximately $1,100 to repair. Then I read that there may not be any sound associated with transmission problems. Could anyone offer helpful suggestions on what I should do next? Thank you.

More info would help.

Vehicle - Make, model, years, miles.

Under what conditions does the noise occur? Accelerating, coasting, braking, turning, etc.

Description of noise. Clunk, rattle, buzz, etc.

What are they going to repair for $1100?

It is true that some transmission problems do not announce themselves with horrible noises. It is also true that other transmission problems do.

Are there any symptoms other than the noise?
