100,ooo miles used to be the life of a vehicle, so you did ok since its 20 years old almost. Ford remans have 2 years parts an labour. Keep the fluid fresh, change it every 30-40 thou.E4ODs are pretty tough.Repairing it may be cheaper tho.

If by any chance you have an issue, take it to a Ford dealer and they have to honor the warranty and you wont have to worry about making up the labor difference as you might have to with Jasper. BTW the Ford transmission will be about the same money from what I have seen.

With your problem it is usually a torque converter and seal that all is needed. Unless the bushing is worn out, the pump should not be an issue. I have not seen an issue with a pump with your symptoms. A larger cooler is a must IMO with the E4OD transmission as they had small coolers. The upgraded 4R100 does have a larger cooler which seems to work very well.
I totally agree. I dealt with Jasper years ago for engines and transmissions. Even when I bought their highest line of products it was a crap shoot. Some worked out fine while others were a nightmare.

When there were problems all they wanted to do was replace the product, and that was after either a rep came out and inspected it or it was shipped back to them for inspection and approval. It all added up to weeks of wasted time and unhappy customers. At that time they wouldn't pay the garage labor to replace a defective part. Needless to say if more than 1 in 100 transmissions or motors were bad or needed repair the garage wasn't making money.

Buying a Ford remanufactured transmission isn't cheap, but it's money well spent. Over the years I've only seen 1 go bad, and that was because someone used the wrong transmission fluid.

Not in Canada. We get 24/40kms and the trannys are shipped from the us . Canada gets the shaft again.

I had no idea that was the case with Canada. The American side does not deal with that because Oakville takes care of the Canadian prior approvals. Figured it was the same on both sides of the border.

Like other's have suggested, stay away from Jasper as well as the normal repair shops, you have no clue what they will or will not do and what they charge for which is hidden when the transmission is re-installed. From a reputable previous employee of the ENGINE/TRANSMISSION CHAIN, they have three different color grades, all @ different prices, all bearing the same rebuild, that's bad business to say it politely......... Go to FORD AUTHORIZED DEALER ONLY, they built it and will stand behind it across the country, JMHO, good luck and travel safe.

Also ask for a Heavy Duty Torgue Converter, as IMO - the TC is undersized for RV duty.

Cooling and more positive shift profile, will also help make this the last auto needed for this RV.

Best of luck,

Thanks for all of the great post's, lot of great info.
We (wife & I) are still trying to get to an agreement on local shop or Ford. Do any of the senior members that live in (Seattle or South Sound) WA State have any recommendations or experiences with Ford dealerships that do this type of work?

Thanks
