    A junk yard transmission absolutely is untrustworthy, but I wouldn't discount just getting a rebuild, which is what I did and faced no problems once done. I assume saying "new" you mean they're actually quoting you for a new transmission which would definitely jack up the price. Perhaps the dealership doesn't rebuild them. If you have a local garage you trust you could check it out there, you'd probably get a better deal either way since it's not the dealership. :D

    The only transmission shop around here told me it would be $2500 plus to remove, rebuild, and replace. only 1 year warranty. I will call around other close cities to quote some prices but I believe the new transmission installed for $2k and a 3 year warranty from the Ford Dealership is the best bet.

    I have a 2003 explorer 4.0 2wd. Tonight I was driving down the interstate & all of the sudden it would not go. Pulled into a road park and it went in reverse fine. No weird sounds or vibration. Any ideas where I could start? No lights came on

    $2k for a new transmission installed by a Ford Dealership with a warranty is a steal; go for it! Look around at threads here, most people end up paying almost twice that. A quality rebuilt unit is $1500 alone. Just check with the dealer to make sure they are replacing the torque converter and solenoid block in that cost, as well as insuring they have a good reputation in general.
