Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started.

Are you planning to have yours diagnosed and repaired or are you wanting to just replace it with a used or remanufactured transmission?

Diagnosed and repaired
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

The concern with 4th gear going to neutral is going to be related to the overdrive band or its servo not holding the reverse clutch drum stationary. This can be a concern with the parts mentioned or with the valve body. At a Ford dealer this can be a parts and labor repair as low as 700$ or as high as 1500$. The higher cost would be for a trans removal and internal repair done. If that is needed I would opt for a complete overhaul and inspection, not just fix this one issue and get out. If that path is chosen then expect that 1500 to be about 1800$

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
