    How much would it cost to replace the automatic transmission in my 1990 F-SuperDuty? It's paired to a 460.

    Your looking at about 2k for a Ford reman tranny. Call around and get the best price. I'd check the dealer, Jasper, and any of the chain tranny shops, plus any small indy tranny shops in your area. If you are looking for a junk yard tranny, the prices vary widely area to area, hard to say what the price would be.

    We just replaced one in a 1992 E350 PSD and it ran about $3000 installed with a 3 year 36k mile warranty. It was a new one from Ford but installed by a very reputable trans shop.

    The one expensive part will be the emergency brake assembly which is the tail housing that bolts to the end of the transmission. It is a dealer only item and there are bearings there that usually go.

    I would have the original transmission rebuilt with heavier parts and you should be good to go. The F-Superduty trucks haul enough weight a transmission designed for a 3/4 ton isn't strong enough.

    Good Luck

    Last year my dad put a reman tranny and a super heavy duty torque converter in his F350. It was $3,500 out the door with a 3 year/30,000 mile warranty or something like that on both the tranny and converter.

    Thanks for the help guys. It seems that it should be between $2,000-2,500 for the tranny.

    Nothing has happened yet, but with 94,000 miles, I am getting prepared for something to go wrong. Hopefully not this summer though.

    Change the oil and filter in the transmission and have some of the oil tested to see how much metals are in it. The biggest thing for a automatic is keep them from getting hot so a good transmission cooler is a must. I don't know if a E4OD transmission can use a good quality synthetic or not but that may help.

    If you pull the transmission dipstick out and look at the oil if it smells bad and looks black as tobys azz then the transmission has been overheated.

    I wouldn't get worried about break downs before they will happen. If you own anything with tires it is going to cost money when it breaks down :laugh:
