5R110w Rebuild or Reman, Labor Cost

Anyone have experience/advice on rebuilding a 5R110W or buying a reman? This is really a preventive question. And I am not anything but a shade tree guy. Way out of my wheelhouse. I have a 2009 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 6.4 which won the truck lottery. It has been treated well but for the transmission. It has 130k on the original fluid and filter. I’m about to have it flushed and replaced. I know many say don’t do it but I am prepared for the consequences. Whether I don’t and it fails, or whether I do and it fails, is it preferred to get a total reman or work with what’s left? How much should I expect in labor costs to swap out a reman? Rebuild? TIA

I wouldn't be worry about a new transmission but make sure they use motorcraft fluid/filter etc. I would not flush the transmission simply drop the pan and replace the fluid/filter, and possibly gasket. When the fluid is ignored that long people have seen issues with a full on fluid exchange versus just dropping pan and replacing the 6-9 quarts etc. Its cheaper, easier, and say after 5k miles if nothing gets worse you can do it again and monitor from there. I have never flushed a used transmission esp one over 100k but pan drops have been very beneficial. current 7.3l has only had two pan drops in 153k and still going strong and she mostly tows a large 5th wheel or skidsteer. she doesn't drive empty much.

Generally speaking close to $4k for new transmission and labor if you don't do it yourself but again at 130k just dropo the pan fluid, filter and probably just the pan gasket and then drive for a bit and see how it reacts. That's my advice and its controversial. Some swear you absolutely must flush blah blah, some go by what I do and some run all sorts of snake oils etc.

Sorry for the delay. I appreciate the feedback. I decided to take it to a local diesel shop here in the Omaha area. Change the fluid and filter and have them use the flusher on it. I have some other work I would like them to do so while it is in there it might just as easy. Expensive, but just as easy.

FWIW, I had mine rebuilt by a local shop...old guy who has been doing automatic transmissions for decades. $2,800 out the door including heavy duty rebuild kit designed for towing. Aamco wanted almost 4K.

He was originally $2,500 but the heavy duty rebuild kit added $300...well worth it!
