It depends on if you want to do it yourself or have a trans shop do it for you. If you DIY, only expense would be the solenoid(s) you would be replacing, on the other hand, if a shop does it for you it will be cost of part + labor+ they might just go ahead and put new trans fluid in it. I don't know if gen4 has same trans layout as gen3 but if it is close then you'll be able to find an article on here to help you through the teardown and re-assembly of your side pan and solenoids. I've gotten the process down to about 8 hours to replace my valve body mostly because I've done it 6 times now. Good Luck with it.
