Hey guys just wanted to see if I could get some help or ideas! My 97 F-350 PSD is havin' trans trouble now! I took it to a local shop for them to check it and they had it for a month, the trans was goin' to cost me $2,600.00(reman). But the trans was never shiped so I went to get it today, get my $ back and the guy at the shop told me it wouldn't stay running! The wiring harness to the injector is shorting out! My question is can I get a trans for less $ or should I go all out?! I own a small landscape company and I pull everything with the truck, should I go all out or stay on the lower side of $?! Any thoughts on where I can get one? I really want a brand new one but I'm short on $ right now (guess I'll stick with a reman)! I had to drive the truck home after I got it to run. But half way home the injector harness started acting up again. Should I drive it to another shop or have it towed? I just don't want anything else to happen to it!! Any help you can give I will be greatful for it! Thanks

Man if that harness is shorting out I wouldn't drive it anywhere.If I were a little tight with cash, I would try to call one of those big tranny reman places myself. Put one in myself. Cut out the middle man. Not to try and skrew a local shop or anything. If your funds are limited, they're limited. Been there man.

I have a jasper remaned trans in my truck and with new TC and tow fees and parts and labor came in at just around $1,800, so yes you can get one cheaper but then again you get what ya pay for. If I were you I would get a new UVCH's for both sides, with the trans I would get a jasper remaned and install a shift kit and 6.0 TC and trans cooler. also I would ditch that edge programmer.... I bet it isnt helping your trans one bit...... go with a chip with custom tunes.

Thanks Guys, yall are alot of help! I'm having it towed to a local shop tom. and their goin' to take a look! I kind of think that the other shop that I took it to, didn't know their a's from a hole in the ground anyway! They didn't know if it was the injector hardness or my CPS! The trans deal was way over their heads anyway! It took them a month to order the trans and it never showed! But he told me the problem was my CPS and I have replaced it twice now! (I know they go out alot) The CPS was not even lettin' the truck turn over, I don't think that the problem but I guess I'll make it a thrid time! The hardness or the solenoid was smoking! I just hope it's not burnt my injector!! Thanks again there Guys!!! SEABASS

How long do you plan to keep this truck?

Planning to sell it ASAP, get something like Jasper or Aamco since the buyer won't pay more for anything exotic.

Planning to keep it for a couple of years, get a Ford Reman

Planning to drive it into the ground, BTS.
