Bummer about the transmission, BTDT

If you live on the south end Denver I'd recommend Kimmer Transmission and Gear (Jordan and Arapahoe). He rebuilt my transmission with a beefed up torque converter, upgraded valve body, and a better warranty than the Ford Dealers were offering for a either the same price, or slightly cheaper. And he did the work in 3 or 4 days. Highly recommend.

I agree.. the 7.3 too me is as bullet proof as they come.
the Cummins is the dominate motor to have around here.. there is not a powerstroke guy for miles .. but you can throw a rock and hit a few cummins guys no problem.
my claim to fame is my 7.3 is bigger than your 5.7 haha
I had a quote to rebuild my trans the other day from a guy, he said 1500-1800 for a rebuild.. to me thats better than buying a used trans ( 950 from the local junk yard) just for the fact I know if i have it rebuilt i know its new inside.. and thinking about asking him to upgrade her as much as he can without breaking the bank..

i had my tranny do that a few years ago i was driving down the highway and it was like it kicked out of gear i could limp it back home tho. i changed the fluid and it worked for a week or so. then went back out did that about 3 times then took it to a shop it was dont for the pump went out and messed the whole thing up. the transmissions in these cant take horse power if u go over stock be ready to buy a new one i went with the suncoast so i hope i never have the problem again

Thanks, Homer. I took it into Budget A-1 Transmission on Santa Fe/Dartmouth and had them start before I read your note. After some haggling, they beat the Ford price and upgraded the Torque Converter to an HD version. 2 years, 24 month warranty (they wouldn't go 3 years without upgrading all the electronics...but I didn't want that cost.) We'll see - hopefully this is the one and only transmission repair I do.

I have read this entire thread. I have the same problem with my F-350 7.3 transmission not working. Fluid is great and looks clean. Transmission filter replaced. Transmission solenoid kit replaced. Analyzer says no problem with transmission. electronics - no warning messages. It will only go in reverse. Any recommendations before going into transmission?
