    Any place rent transmission jack. I can’t afford to drop $75-100 for the harbor freight one. Transmission is at my local freight terminal but probably won’t deliver for a few more days due to our current snowstorm. I’m think of getting the old barrel wood stove out of the barn at the farm and putting it in my garage here in town. Can’t afford the stove pipe though, ugh

They pulled the torque converter off and shipped without any plastic wrap. The pump was open to debris from South Dakota to Southern Illinois. Metal bands were loose and looks like it rolled around on the pallet. So they will honor the warranty through the entire 6 month period, I have to leave a 5 star feedback now though right? lol.

    Does an engine bay mounted transmission dip stick tube from an older model fit the newer no engine bay dip stick transmissions? 6R75 being the no tube in question.

    I’ve seen video of an aftermarket one but the price wasn’t reasonable. F-150s out the wazoo in local yards. Guess I can pull one and see if it fits.

    Wish I’d bought one of these tool creeper years ago. Starting to remove the old transmission today.

    I cut off the extra garage door opener bracket. It was going to scrape the Expedition roof if someone opened the door while it’s up on jack stands.

    Looks like I’m about to replace a torque converter labeled 2016 with an used original stock 2008 one. But since I don’t know if the failure is the converter or trans or both, guess I’ll go head with the stock 2008 converter & trans. Is this Gopnh a good company, as in should I check if any warranty left on this converter?

    They're a US company that specializes in torque converters. How's the fluid look coming out of the torque converter? If it's still bright red (no metal shavings...) it's probably still a good one. You can call and ask Precision what they recommend.

    I added 4 quarts to the trans pan, then finished bolting up the exhaust last night. This morning I started it and shifted through all the gears letting the fluid circulate, then backed it down off the ramps. Not looking forward to the process of topping off the trans fluid, but it moved under its own power! So far no trans line leaks.

    No check engine light so far. The battery has been unplugged for over a week, but so far no new codes I guess. Only instrument cluster display warnings are tire pressure sensor and air suspension off. Before I put the bumper cover & grill back on, I was waiting to see if any cooler line leaks. So far none so my afternoon project is replacing the fog lights then putting the bumper, grill, and headlights back on.

    I’m beginning to worry that the thermal valve is stuck. I’ve only added 6 quarts and after several times letting it warm up and even today driving it around town and the dipstick shows it’s just over the bottom of the cross hatch section. I’ve seen videos and read several sources saying it should take 12-13 quarts to refill the system after trans swap. Coolers & lines were flushed and blown out. I’m afraid to drive it since it’s not taking another 6 quarts of Motorcraft Mercon SP.
