Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

TRANSMISSION REMOVAL 2003 FORD EXPLORER SPORT

I had my transmission checked out by Ford and they said it needs to be replaced $3400.00 is to much. I can get a rebuild with a 3 year unlimited milage warranty for $1320.00. I have the truck up on jack stands and looking at what is involved in removing the trans. I can see
4 bell housing bolts at the bottom but I think there is 8. How do you get
at the top bolts? It looks like exhaust,starter, drive shaft and starter need to come off. Is there anything else I shoud be aware of. I have changed out transmissions before but it has been on older vehicles from the 60's & 70's. There is a lot less room on these newer vehicles. Any
information on removing the trans would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Gary

I have a Ford F 150 2007 v8 it needs a automatic transmission will a 2005 Ford F 150 transmission be compatible


I wouldn't be installing a used trans,
if that is why your asking

Rebuild yours

No reason to need a trans on a 7 to 8 year old vehicle

I would guess you never change the fluid every 2 to 3 years

Most Ford Transmissions have known problems, brand new,
& they are well know by the shops that rebuild them

So get it rebuilt & do all the updates or suffer the same fate
every 70 to 100,000 miles

You would have to ask a trans shop or have a dealer run some
number off the unit, to answer that

If you see different wiring, etc, then,no,unless it can be switched
over to the 2005 unit.

Is the other trans from the same motor & same type vehicle

These things are all computer controlled,you can't just assume
you can mix & match from one year to the next

Heater core replacement on a 2003 ford sport trac


the complete climate control assembly unit is required to be removed in order to remove the heater core. The climate control assembly is attached by studs & nuts which are accessible at the firewall in the engine compartment. The R134 refrigerant will need to be evacuated and the a/c lines at the expansion valve removed in order to remove the climate unit. Hope this helps. :)

02 ford ranger transmission slips on small incline when put in park.


Check your transmission fluid level. Add if it is low. Your Ranger may at some point need a transmission rebuild. This involves pulling the transmission from beneath the truck and replacing the individual gears. Rebuilds are needed when the gear teeth (the grooved serrated edge of a gear) begin to wear. When this happens the gears cannot engage completely and the transmission will begin to slip.

Sorry to say that when you get a rebuild on a transmission they don't replace everything. Most transmission rebuilds are just the solenoids or seals or the whole solenoid package with a new converter. Few times do they go in and replace hard parts. And if they do, you really pay for it ($3000.00+) . And I personally have never heard of an up/down switch?? I would also check for the warranty on the transmission. Some rebuilds come with 3 year unlimited mileage. call them personally, don't let the mechanic do it.
