    Anyone that has a ford (f350) ever have a U-joint break while driving and tear out the yolk, then making some housing by the tranny break, which then caused the truck to go into 4x4 on dry pavement at 65mph, which then caused the tranny to piss out all the fluid and break that too?

    That happened to me on weds night at 10pm when I was about 70miles from home. Cost me $4 per mile to get home and a big repair bill.

    good thing is that I have a new tranny and new ujoints and a warranty on the tranny.

    Wow I'm suprised to hear that you guys like Merollis everytime i've ever gone there they've never fixed my stuff right. I used to buy all my cars from there but started buying them from Buff Whelan cuz Merollis was always 2-3 thousand dollars more. And have never had any success with there service department, or bump shop.

    Mark- thats pretty crazy especially with 54,000 miles on it. Are you saying that it was all covered under your warranty or now that you have a new transmission it has a warranty on it?

    It wasnt under warranty. Now since I have a new transmission it has a 1 year warranty.
