ford automatic repairs

Recommended Posts

friend of mine is having tranny issues with either his rig or his friends [they are in east nevada hunting] texted me asking if we know of a good tranny guy with blue oval trannies other than BTS ... looking for someone in north western Nevada / northern Calif. or southern Oregon .... maybe even Wa. ..... not sure what all is going on yet as he hasn't responded to my reply yet

 

any thoughts ???

thanks Ken ... as it turns out he totally fried his tranny , lost all but a drop of fluid by inattention / hurrying to hunt spot 6hrs east pulling a heavy 5er .... he got 4 qts from a friend to get back to civilization where he was able to fill it ... but he says it done LOL ... DUH

 

good guy just not into common sense sometimes

Ford sells a HD one that has the newer stronger TC. Last time I looked I think it was around $3500 exchange but that was a few years ago...he has 7.3 not the 6.?

7.3 ... I'll pass that on to him, that would be far less than a BTS and just might do for his needs Thanks Dan
