not a hard job at all if you have the proper tools. $250 is very reasonable. Hope the guy knows what he is doing. Price makes me think he isn't a professional. Doesn't mean he isn't competent though.

just spent 2grand on my 08 automatic for a junk yard swap. Labor was more than the trans. My car has 152,000 on it and is still in decent shape and runs good. If I didn't spend the money I had a boat anchor sitting in my driveway. A total rebuild would have been around $700 more.

We charge $75/hr at my shop and bill 4 hrs for a tranny swap, but that's on a Subaru. Our Fords seem a lot easy to work on. So $250 isn't a bad deal at all.

Got my car back. Seems to work great!! Trans and shifting feels super tight and new. Thanks for all the feedback

My 05 sedan hit 147,000 miles when the clutch and shifter cable completely went out on me. Upgraded to an Exedy OEM clutch and flywheel set and now at 154,000 my tranny is still running strong with no problems whatsoever (knock on wood). A friend of mine has an automatic 07 hatchback and his tranny went out at only 76,000. The Ford dealership has had it for over a month now and can't figure out what's wrong with it. If I were in the position to have to get a new transmission I would definitely go the used route like these guys are saying. You'll spend at least three times the cost of a used one for a rebuilt transmission.

Great. I'd have them do bsd plug too. Unless you want to.
