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?

Default Tranny's won't shift properly

It's most likely the electric speedometer mechanism under the dash when they burn up tranny's won't shift properly $25 part at junkyard
