Question about 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.
Take the trans mount and cross memeber out and let the engine tilt down with a floor Jack, then u can get at the top bolts, u will need a 3 foot extension and a wobbly socket. As far as the cost of the trans work goes could you break it down by parts and labor, also what is the hourly labor rate, here it is $115 per hour. One last not be careful of the connectors to the trans, break them and u will need a new wiring harness, about $450.
