Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
First of all what year, make, model, engine, transmission if you know is this and second, what gears are worn and what more issues does it have and how may I be of assistance?
If they are replacing the torque converter, it is located in front of the transmission, so the transmission would have to come out in order to replace it so that may be the reason the price is so high on that, most of it is for labor.
The labor guide I have says 6.5 hours for them to change the torque convertor, so if they charge $100 an hour labor, that would be $650 labor for changing the torque convertor, pus of course the price of the torque convertor.
