re (95 F250)
I'm the second owner of my truck. It had 92,000 on it when I bought it.
The previous owner pulled a 14,000 lb fifth wheel with it. He did take good care of it with regular maintence. As far as I know it has never had a wrench to the transmission. The fluid has no indication of of burning or excessive heat. It was one of my concerns when I bought it, but I have had no problems what so ever. I talked to a guy at a transmission shop ahd he
said he would starve to death if he depended on the E40D Transmission to make his living. I really feel good about it now. I think abuse and lack of maintence is the major killer of that transmission. I have had the truck for over 3 years and like I said never a shudder just clean solid shifts. At this time my brother is rebuilding the E40D out of his Lightning (400 hp with vortec supercharger) Because of a converter problem. but the internals of transmission are still rock solid.
