The worst case scenario would be just replaceing it with a ford factory reman which comes with a 3 yr 100k warranty. The trans is about $2,100 and the labor should be no more than 7 hours. The labor though depends on the ability they have to work under the vehicle or lift it. There may be extra cost since the vehicle is so big. Since your out of town then this is the better option since its much faster and you get better quality parts. Ford can usually ship you a reman one in one buisness day. At my shop 70.50 is the labor rate. But I could not pick this vehicle up. So I would have to do it on jack stands and I would charge 1.5 hours extra for the hassle.
If there overhaul goes over the cost of just replaceing it which is the best option then your going to be wasting your money. The range in price on the overhaul is because they do not know whats damaged until they get in it.
If this is helpful please do hit accept so I get credit or reply and say I accept.
how do i get tranny from ford for 2,100 dollars and if my cost is more then 2800 dollars iam getting screwed u saying lol plz respond
You go to a ford dealer an order one which fits your vehicle. On the internet ford dealers I am seeing them at about $2,250. I would need to be at my dealer to get an accurate price.
Remember this. A ford reman has almost all new parts and a tech overhauling yours will just go in and fix the one problem and get out. and only warranty it for about 12 months 12,000 miles.
