2001 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Automatic 123000 miles
I recently purchased this used, & noticed transmission was slipping b/w 2nd & 3rd - upon AAMCO road test, it was determined that I was getting a flare b/w 1st & 2nd. Problem is internal. Est $350 for a tear-down & suggest transmission rebuild or replacement -
When they went to pull the engine codes, NO codes came up. Tranny Fluid was over-filled, dark & burnt. Flush and Fluid replacement cannot be performed.
They also have recently come to own a Ford Explorer where the tranny lost reverse, etc. They rebuilt it to OEM specs and have quoted me $1500 to switch the tranny's out including warranty. This Trans. Has 89k miles - Does this sound right? Should I bargain with them as far as letting them keep my old tranny to rebuild to use for the other ford explorer they plan to sell? Or should I get a second opinion? Any help would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
