ED Transmission

Hi guys, it looks like my transmission has had it either that or it is my C4 clutch apparently. Anyway what I am wondering is what kind of price am I looking at to get a changeover one put in for me or what would it be to fix just the c4 clutch if that’s what it is. It is an ED Fairmont and has a 4-speed auto.

Thanks all for your time.

I broke a C4 hub on my 4spd auto, its a strip to pieces job so I ended up having to have it reconditioned. It was $2,600 a few years back, I think you can get them for around $1600 nowadays, or a second hand one for about $700.

Replaced

Yep thats what ended up being wrong with mine the c4 and c2 hub were both cracked and were leaking oil internally quite bad. Anyway I got it replaced with a reco one which cost me 1650, probably failry high but it comes with 2 year warranty which is not to bad at all. Will it run a bit rough for a little bit until it settles?

Hopefully you got the 95 LE upgrade, this has a stronger C4 hub, its probab;y standard practice now, or they may even have a newer recon kit nowadays.

It shouldn't run rough by the time you get it home. The ECU would have to 'learn' the new trans settings and after that it should by normal. You could disconnect the battery for a while, say overnight, this will then force the ECU to learn about the new trans next time you drive. If its still rough, i'd be talking to the reco guys, something may not be adjusted correctly.

I would be very wary of buying a s/h auto trans of any sort, especially Ford 4spd auto. They are renowned for their problems and IMO it would be false economy to buy one as there is a good chance that it could pack it in as well. Unless you are just going to sell the car then it hopefully will be someone else's worry.
