I have a 2004 GT. It has a manual trans 5 speed. I have 70000 miles on the car and went thought 2 transmissions. I'm not hard on the car. Can anyone tell me what is the best trans for that car. I need something that will hold up.
Yea they do come overfilled. But that's every single 01-04 5 speed from the factory, it hinders shifting but usually hasn't destroyed transmissions.
Bullitts are better than Bullets
The problem was the oil is foaming. When they put the second trans in the ford com. said to keep it a quart lower. They even put a sticker on the trans saying that. When I got the new trans 5 gear was bad from the start. I went to them twice and they blow me off. They said it was the tires causing the vibration. Two years letter 5 gear went. I knew it would. And it did. I want to get a 6 speed don't like the 5. What's the best trans to get.
You got a bad trans from the start like you said. Shop screwed you. A good 3650 is a real great transmission that will last a long time and shift well. You want the best? Get a Tremec Magnum. For $5k...
I got a rebuilt 3650 for my old 98 for $1060 shipped, installed it and it was awesome right off the bat.
