What year is the truck? There are a few that were used C-6, E4OD, 4R100, and Torqueshift.

From 92-97 Ford used the E4OD. From 99-03? Ford used the 4R100 in the 7.3. The 6.0 has the Torqueshift. Ford had some durability problems with torque converters in the E4OD. There are a ton of aftermarket parts that can really beef up this trans. I would not hesitate to buy another Powerstroke in good condition. Just know if it has the original trans that at some point it may need replacement. Check out TheDieselStop (http://forums.thedieselstop.com/ubbthreads/) for more info.

Our 4X4 2000 F250 Superduty 7.3L Turbo Diesel is 5 speed overdrive auto trans, not a stitch of problem at about 30K miles now. We do snow removal with it (what a waste of a Superduty if it doesn't plow snow!!).

We treat the engine good, our trailer's got brake pads.
You got to bid into your accounts the fact that at every 30K miles you need to fully change out the transmission oil and filter. Our Ford Dealer does this for $500 + tax.

Have 7 Ford F250 Powerstrokes with auto. trans. all are 1996 or 1997 models. all have over 225,000 miles on them, a couple are near 250,000 miles. All needed trans. rebuilds at about 130,000 - 160,000 miles. None have needed a second rebuild so far. All are used to pull trailers most of the time. Really can not complain about their performance. We do not plow snow with them.

I know 5 people that have the 6.0 diesels in new 2004 trucks. Out of those 5 trucks, three of them have had new transmissions. One went after 700 miles, another after 2000 miles and the other i am unsure of. Ford gave two of them rebuilt transmissions and one guy a new tranny. looks like they have a few bugs to work out.

If they offer that kind of warranty, get it in writing.

As far as the Chevy thing, don't know if that would have been any better or not......in my experience our Fords have not had any transmission problems like our Chevys have had.

Yes Ford will give you a power train warranty up to 100K and 6 years from the original purchase date and miles. If they are willing to give you this ask them if they will give you the ESP Premium warranty which is the top of the line. They will probably say no but it is worth a shot. The service manager will just fill out a complimentary ESP form and send it into Fords ESP department which in turn will issue the warranty and it will then show up on Fords OASIS computer program when ever you take it into ANY dealership the warranty will show up for them in Fords system.

It is basically a customer satisfaction tool that the dealerships have to fall back on. Just dont be a prick to them and be nice and even keeled and they will like you alot more and be willing to help out a NICE customer as opposed to an Irate customer.

Good Luck

Just FYI: You have a 4R100 which os only a 4 speed transmission.

Also, if you're paying $500 for a flush and a filter change you are getting ripped. Even with synthetic tranny fluid for the flush AND dropping the pan and changing the filter should only be half that.

Actually it can be done for $65 using regular fluid. I don't know what the price of synthetic is, but I had my truck (E40D) done for $55 with Motorcraft ATF and a Motorcraft filter.

One of the wisest investments on the E40D/4R100 is to put a deeper tranny pan on, to give you more fluid capacity, which will extend its life significantly. If I was planning on keeping mine, I would put one on.

there is a recall for some torqueshift transmissions right now for a planetary gear pin that is backing out and shredding some transmissions. But it is a free warranty recall. definately check www.thedieselstop.com before you do anything.
