4R100 FIX? or replace?
And yes I am new here! I have a 2001 F-250 SD
2-wheel drive Extended Cab Short Bed with a 7.3 Turbo Diesel and the 4R100
Automatic with Overdrive.
The truck has been sitting for a while because the transmission refuses to upshift from 2nd to third.
The truck has about 190K miles and I am debating on whether to break my bank and go for a remanufactured transmission or taking into a reliable shop and have them do a diagnostic on the transmission and see if there is something simple that can be done?
I read that the valve body may be the culprit with the 2-3 valve being stuck? I have never had the pan off the trans or any service to the trans since I owned the truck as the 2nd owner.
What years of transmissions will be identical? Is is 1999 to 2004? I thought the 7.3 Turbo was phased out in 2002? (anyone know?)
A reman trans is going to run me close to $3 grand. Not sure I want to put that into it but then used transmissions scare me!
So....What are your ideas here? Thanks! Bob in VA
