Re: Ford rebuilt transmission
[ QUOTE ]
I guess you guys are IGNORING my post above...I am on major trans failure #4...and if you count a tork converter, then it is major failure #5....this is in 85k. I would stay away from those piles of junk....or I just have the worst luck in the world.

Just an Opinon But.... The ONLY thing you have with a Ford Reman Tranny is Fords name behind it, >MAYBE<. (depending on how the Dealer & the Area Rep. feels about it)
Depending on the "Luck'a the Draw" a Ford reman could be rebuilt by a reputable transmission repair facility or, Bubba Joe's Tranny Shop & Cafe.
So, If we don't mind haveing to be without our SD every Xk miles for Ford to fix the tranny AGAIN. A Ford Reman is the way to go.
OR, we can't spend the Buck'os for a tranny that is BUILT to handle the use we need it to handle.
I go with: Have it Rebuild it ONCE, the right way. Or, buy one of basicaly Bullit Proof Tranys we know of from Vendors here on TDS.
Again, just an Opinion.
