milage on auto tranny?

ok guys im thinking bout buying a 99 with a (gasp) auto tranny

the truck has 123k and to my knowledge the tranny has not been rebuilt
the oasis said it had a new torque converter 102k miles ago

due to the condition of the truck and holes drilled in bed i would assume it towed a 5th wheel at some point and time but i dont believe the truck has been modded because it still sports the factory air box and exhaust.

the tranny seems really strong rite now but should i buy the truck for the price im going to end up paying for it. is going to own me finatualy for a long time.

my question is how many miles have all of you gotten out of your automajics before the dreaded rebuild?

some go 50,000, some go over 150,000 no problems. It will be cheaper though if you ever have to get a built auto VS all the clutches you could go through in a manual. gl

too bad im not getting a good enough deal on the truck for that to be feasable but from how strong it feels im prety positive it has quite a bit of life left in it. I dont tow allot and when i do its not super heavy and im not doing any thing crazy like drag racing or sled pulling either.

Y first trans went 71K. The second one went 800 miles. The third one went 78K. The first one totally blew apart inside. The second broke the 1-2 drum, it was a rebuild that had defective part. The third one was slipping like crazy. Some even though I had a shift kit in it because it shifted so hard but it was slam shifting into gear. I am currently on trans number 4 and it will be my last, I hope. It is just sweet!!!!!Thank you John Wood.

No, the first one was basic mods, intake, exhaust, chip(superchip microtuner actually). The second does not count. The third one only had 368hp through it.
