Hey I was wondering how many miles can transmission last up to? I have got 1996 Explorer with 155k on it and it shifts real great as it should. and my friend has a 96 explorer and finally failed at 199k and end up for a rebuild which cost him 700 for it. I was wondering how much lifespan it got before i have to expect for a rebuild tranny? Thanks

if you can get 300k out of one you're doing a good job

I've got 304k on my 95 and no real problems. I've changed fluid and filter 3 or 4 times.

Nice, mine died after 216k. I plan on using amsoil and taking really good care of this one. although from what it sounds like 216 istn bad.
