Tranny

So my dads been driving my old 97 psd, cuz his 97 is in the shop, and he about had a heart attack today when the tranny temp gauge hit 220 lol.
I've gotten it up to 235, and it needs some repairs... does 1500-2000$ sound like a good deal for a complete rebuild???

Thats not to bad. I just paid 1600 for mine to be redone. Now thats giving them an already built trans that had a slight issue. Them pulling it out, going though it, replacing the clutches, testing the TC, and reinstalling. But overall your price range is right on the mark

I agree that's a good price, I just paid $1600 a few months ago to get a heavy duty rebuild plus spent a extra $450 on a deep finned pan and 40K tru-cool cooler. do yourself a favor and take it to a independent trans shop, not someplace like aamco, or precision.

My cousin had his cummins tranny rebuilt at a local well-known shop with a heavy-duty rebuild, better torque convertor, and a valve body and it was $2500. A local shop offered to give me a steel tc, modded vb for $1600, not sure how much a full hd rebuilt would be. Prolly another 400-1000$

Not necessarily, when mine was built everything was upgraded including torque converter for towing and 400 plus horsepower.

It is an independent transmission shop, and I have no clue but I kinda want the suncoast master duty rebuild kit, seems like it would make it the perfect tranny for farm use and whatnot? Anyone ever got that particular rebuild before?

Good name. The old rule of thumb applies to transmissions though. you get what you pay for. Also you cant afford to do it right the first time but you can always afford to do it twice? lol
