Typical - not a term commonly associated with transmission repairs.

A minor repair like an externally-mounted sensor replacement or shifter adjustment might run a couple hundred $, $250-400 is also a common range for a complete transmission "service" - flush, remove and clean pan, replace any filters, adjust bands if your transmission needs that.

Beyond that - can run $500-1000 commonly for replacement of any internal components like pump or hydraulic control block IF it does not require disassembly of the transmission or removal from the vehicle.

If it has to be removed from the vehicle and "torn down" due to cracked housing or worn bearings, gears, or clutch for instance - then $2500-5000 is a common number range I have heard - the upper end getting into the low end of the commonly $4000-8000 complete replacement cost range for many brands. The $4000-6000 range is also a common ballpark cost for a rebuilt (as opposed to brand new) transmission installed cost.

Of course, as you can tell - those are VERY broad ballpark numbers - so much depends on brand, transmission model, whether you go with a repaired, junkyard, rebuilt, remanufactured, or brand new transmission if it needs replacement, your local area costs, etc.
