I told the dealer about the new condition when I took it back for the converter replacement, and right away they said they want to replace the complete transmissiom. As soon as I found this out, I put a hold on the repair, and called Ford customer service. I have a valve that was manufactured to completely remove the shift flare. Thank you for listening to my problem. Your first problem was definately the converter.
Maybe you could push for a rebuild of yours, or maybe that's what they're gonna do anyway and you assumed they were putting another in it?. I also told them I would aggree to have them rebuild my transmission, but they told me the costs to properly rebuild mine would be higher than what Ford would allow them to spend. That's what happens when they are going out. The fixes are all electronic in nature, like changing the pcm program. I guess my questions are; Is this the best Ford can do for me? Do they replace just the soft parts, seals, clutches, bands , or do they replace all internal parts? I would rather that than your scenario for sure. The 42000 miles are all towing 12000 pounds all over the usa.
I am a very dedicated Ford owner, but I am very disappointed with my new truck. I was 600 miles from home and wasn't about to quit. I to have a F350 powerstroke, the truck now has 42000 miles. I recently called a company by the name of Level 10 Transmissions, in N. At 41500 miles I heard this god awful sound coming from the trans area, I had the truck towed to my local dealer who has maintained this veh.
I scheduled an appointment, to have it replaced, for the following week. I tore up the transmission. My truck has only 3,200 miles on it. Bob Thank you, Bob, for replying to my transmission problem. At least my shafts, etc had only 10k on them and not??? I hear alot of Powerstroke trucks with this same noise. It is a problem in the valve body.
I took the truck to the Ford dealer and they replaced a shift solenoid, flushed the transmission, I was told the transmission oil was burnt , and they reprogrammed the computer. I am very afraid that they will install a transmission that may have 50, 60, or 70,000 miles, or more, on the internal parts, and my truck has only 3,200 miles on it. I am very unsure as to which way I should go with the repair. I wasn't very happy with it either, but what are you gonna do. The transmission came in the next day, and it was a rebuilt unit.
I paid alot of money for my truck, not to have used parts installed on it. . . . . .
