Fattie this is why people need to learn to do there own work. Ive got a bad tranny in the new 04 dtec i bought. gunna tear it down and try to rebuild it myself and save a ton of money.

redwake i can and did read... but the way it was presented i was wondering if the repair itself was $1100 so i was hoping he didn't have to come out of pocket at all.

if you did have to fork out the $1100 sorry man that stinks. i dont know what changes were made in the ATX for mk2 but if it makes you feel any better i was quoted $1500 for a rebuild w/shift kit before i swaped in the lentec.

Ha, for $100 you could just send it off to get it reset

When I got mine reset it was $90 total (shipping and what not)

I would tell that dealer to go scratch

In the meantime I spoke directly with Ford Customer Service, and asked them if there was any assistance available because I was so close to the end of my warranty. Fast forward a week, Ford told me, and maybe I'm not remembering clearly, but a drum inside the transmission was broken and that caused it to break other things in the housing?

The dealer submitted an estimate to Ford Customer Service for around $3400. The dealer and Ford are going to cover $2400 of that, so my out of pocket expense is right at $1000. Although I would rather not be out of pocket at all, I think this was a fair arrangement between Ford, the dealer, and myself...
I'm so glad to hear that things worked out; this really made my day! Next time you go in for a service appointment, use some of these coupons and save some extra green: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conten...iceCouponsPage
