2001 Ford Explorer Q&A

2001 Ford Explorer Question: Transmission

Dear Sir/Madam Why do you not include transmission overhauls in your repair services estimates? -
Answer 1
Part of the problem is, what does an overhaul consist of? Consider all the different transmissions, parts and labor time variables, and you start to see that coming up with a reliable estimate is very difficult, and of no use to our users if it isn't accurate. We will provide Automatic Transmission Replacement estimates later this year, but unlikely we will provide overhauls. Sorry for the inconvenience. -
