    I think there's a 1st gen tranny on ebay for about $375 - $400. Never had one rebuilt...if you did, it would probably come w/a warranty though.

    i cant afford it, i need the truck on thurs and my mom will pay for a rebuild but wont let me buy one because if i do it according to her i am modding the truck.

    i used to work at aamco so im letting my ex boss do it and getting a lifetime warranty :) i just dont have my mom in town at the moment

    I've seen Chevy and Ford trucks need a trans rebuild at 50k miles and don't even start with Dodge, lol. 250k miles on a trans is damn good, automatic trans are a wear item, the clutch plates in the trans wear just from normal operation.

    Sorry but I call shenanigans on the plugs. I can believe the Sumitomo wireset but no plug (that I know of except maybe iridium) will last 200k miles.

    Had the tranny on my expedition rebuilt after about 130,000. And then a year later it left me stranded in first gear and ended up driving 20 miles @15 mph to my girlfriends house. Got it looked at and decided to the "cash for clunker" route. That's how I got my taco!!

    went to my old boss, we found an issue that could be causeing all the problems. my T-case is sending the code that the truck is in L4 when it isnt so that it sends a malfunction code to the computer and sends it into fail safe mode


    only 75 bucks and 2 plugs
