Re: ZF-6 JUNK

No problems here. your being an 01, it's an S6-650. If you buy a reman, get the 03 and newer S6-750.

I've been having cold shift problems with mine. Going to dump the ATF and run full systhetic 75w90 gear oil.

Re: ZF-6 JUNK

If that is the case. Wouldnt it have to be from a 03 7.3 only as I think that 6.0s have a different bell housing? I'm wondering what was upgraded in the
S6 750.

Re: ZF-6 JUNK

i'm surprised i havent had any issues with the slave cyl. i drove it from Indiana to Georgia today no major probs just kind of a howling/baby grindish sounding noise but im startin to think its the rear end howling. I checked the fluids in everything before i left so i dont know. guess i'll just wait and see what lets go.
