E4OD starting to slip

My tranny is beginning to slip in my 90 F250 7.3L. I called a local transmission repair shop to get a worst case "ballpark" estimate to replace/rebuild and their quote was $2100.00! This seemed a little high to me. Anybody out there replaced theirs and, if so, what did you pay? Thanks!

$2,100 to replace a torque converter. holy crap. stay away from that place.

My tq has begun to slip pretty bad and it is not going to cost near that much to replace it. i don't know a final price yet, but roughly $800 for the tq+labor. i highly doubt labor will be $1000 though. i am having a guy working out of his garage do mine though.

The torque converter can't really "slip". The clutches inside are whats sliping, and for a for a complete rebuild, thats not too far off. If your fairly mechanically inclined transmissions are not as complicated as they seem.

That's good to know. Will continue to price it out. These automatic E4od trannys are tricky when they gear up/down. This is my first experience with one. Its hard to find the sweet spot just to crusie without changing gears. At least mine is anyway....
