So after everything with my torque converter issue I decided to get prices:
Shop A (specific a transmission shop) $500 for replacement of the torque converter 1100 for a complete rebuild of the tranny
Shop B (universal shop that does everything) $600 for a converter 1300 for a complete rebuild (Guy was actually recommended to me by a buddy who works at Ford they would use all OEM parts from ford)
This is an E4OD tranny. I am aiming for a rebuild first shop is 6 monthes 6000 miles second is 6 monthes unlimited miles

Are you talking about removing/replacing the tranny yourself, and just having them rebuild it in their shop?

Or are you gonna let them do all the heavy lifting as well?...........

$1600---$1800-ish sounds a bit cheap to me. Over here in Hell-A, a full rebuild with r&r'ing starts at about $2300.00..........

I was thinking the same thing, to be honest. I mean, I wouldn't ever let anyone else touch my truck, let alone stick their hands in its most important components. But if I had to get a transmission rebuild, I'd expect somewhere near the $2000 mark, and a MUCH better warranty. Six months seems like nothing, IMO.

If *I* were building it for someone else, I'd give 'em two years or 48,000 miles. Yes, I'm that damn good. :imp


EDIT: Whatever you do, don't let them put racing components into it, or try to add more steels/frictions to the clutch packs. Rarely have I seen a shop really know what they were doing when attempting such a modification.

Sounds like option 2 is the better way to go, if he does use OEM parts. Ask if he has much experience with the E4OD's and so on. The guy who rebuilt mine has a lot of experience with them. Those prices are awesome too, mine ran me $2,615.

According to my local ford dealer this is owned by a former tranny tech from ford. Only difference the shop has been in service for over 20 years recently bought by a former ford tranny tech when the local ford dealer let one of there techs go during the whole automotive fiasco Ford said they were going to close some dealerships in the area. I will call him tomorrow probably stop by and go into more detail with the owner. He did seem to know what he was talking about he asked my about DTC codes, said if the tranny was failing I should have muiltiple but he also said to pull the pan and check inside the converter and look for discoloration but he said as long as he is in there no reason to go into the tranny and get it rebuilt which would include new seals clutch packs valve body and converter. Hey sig you want to rebuild my tranny

i had mine e4od and torque converter rebuilt for 1200 with a 1 year warranty and shipped to my house. i dropped it with my dad though. i would suggest dropping the tranny yourself to save alot of money

I got out the door for 1850 with all hard parts upgraded, small shop in Bellflower, this was in May of '09. The shop was starving and they cut on the R&R labor to get the job. It's lasted about 25k of freeway driving and 405 commuting, so far. Year warranty just popped, so I figure it will poop the bed, but we shall see.

I am talking about the shop not replacing the whole tranny.... They would pull the factory tranny replace the guts, converter, pump, valve body. I think I may have been misleading on what I said. Which I would rather go with a decent rebuild from a decent shop.

Ouch, I know a guy that does any trannys around 900 bucks, and they do GOOD. My girlfriend's dad has all his work trucks serviced there, and these work trucks are abused hard.

I dunno that seems right on par, expecially with prices around here..

We just had my fiancee's truck's transmission rebuilt.. Dealer wanted 3600, then we did some shopping, found a transmission shop, that did the r/r for 1600 plus towing there, and 5 year 100k mile warranty..

That was about 7 months ago, and the truck is STILLr unning very very strong
