      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the torque converter seal from around $2.00 for your vehicle and transmission model; GM 4T65-E; 4 Speed.

      The labor costs and time will vary - from repair shop to repair shop - even in the same location / general area. Utilize the 'Find-A-Shop' and 'Estimate Cost' features on the AutoMD website.
