My transmission had been slipping so I'm thinking of just putting a new Lentech in there. I wanna get rid of my old one but I don't know what they go for used. It has about 42,000 miles on it.

There are some issues with it. I took it to a transmission guy and this is what he told me:

Needs a new end cover and possibly clutches and a new solenoid.

It's currently filled with brand new Royal Purple fluid.

So what would be a good selling price for this if I sell it as is to include shipping?

I had a small trouble with mines on my 02 focus and the solution... NOTHING! I would rather wait for something serious to happen instead of paying for something small which might not fix the problem.

My problem wasn't so much as slippage, I had an intermitten pause while it shift from 2nd to 3rd; and it is an electrical issue and it was a solenoid and to me wasn't a real big deal since where talking about hundreds of $$$ to fix it....

^^^ Me neather, but on the hole that might be in the price range. The only transmission changes I have done were on detuned Thunderbirds equipped with 3.8 V6 that they put in the Taurus.
