64K no towing....slips badly in R and 4 and 5 from what I can tell....It limps every time I try and drive it. Truck was fine, just over 60K so I decided the trans fluid needed a change. Had the Shell Rapid lube flush and fill trans and noticed a diff in the way the truck shifted and the converter locked. Within a few days the truck started slipping in R a little and would limp when I jumped on it. I assumed they put the wrong fluid in it so I went to the Ford place and got the fluid changed today and within about 30 min it was shot....When I went back to shell to get my $$ back @ Shell the manager told me that they didn't even use the Mercon LV Fluid, they added some sort of additive to make the regular Dexron/Mercon work with my truck...What kinda BS is that?? Pretty sure the clutches are burnt

You need to use the LV, I would be pissed at Shell. I would look to upgrade to the suncoast rebuild kit and their tq converter. Let us know if we can help.

They are gonna have to pay for it.....I have a reciept tht says they added an additive and cleaner to the trans and a document from ford saying that lv must be used and any additives or cleaners will damage the trans.....so thats iron clad in court!

what is your opinion on the Rebuild kit, vs the full suncoast trans? Full suncoast is out of my price range. I really don't see myself going much further than a stock motor with a 310 race tune. Maybe at some point a slight upgrade on the turbos.

What would be a reasonable price to pay a shop to do the Sun Coast rebuild?

I would go and spend the money for a COMPLETE built transmission.... From Suncoast or the Elite unit, direct from the FACTORY.

My Suncoast (which was rebuilt by a Suncoast Dealer) has been apart 3 times, and is in need of a complete rebuild and another torque converter.... in 24,000 miles...... My tires last ~28,000 miles, so I am not beating on my stuff.......

It will cost more initially, but may save BIG money in the short run!
