My transmission shop call the truck
the "exploder." He loves them, because
they bring him so much business.
According to this mechanic, Ford used
the Falcon transmission with the six,
and a better transmission with the 8.
My truck is a six. I have had one
entire rebuild and a major repair for a
cost of approx $3500. The transmission
is going into fail safe again. Don't
know how much it will cost this time.
Truck has 190,000 miles. This works
out to a major transmission repair
every 65,000 miles. The ventilation
system doesn't work properly. The
truck will get stuck 4 wheel drive
low. It will be a long time before I
buy another Ford product.
