2001 Ford F-350 Owner Comments

problem #4

May 062011

F-350 7.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles


Going down freeway out of my state when the transmission blew all its oil out a seal and burned up. A Ford dealer charged me $5500 to put in a new one. Since then, I've learned that 2001 transmissions has a VERY high failure rate but not my exact problem---they have a bad piece of equipment inside that usually starts the second gear to fail. A very expensive fix. Since mine blew, I've spoken to dozens of Ford diesel owners who all know about the real article in the 2001 trans.

problem #3

Jul 112008

F-350 Lariat 7.2L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

This is the second time the transmission has gone out on this truck. First time was less than 30k miles on it. Now the trans is totally fired along with the cooler and torque converter. This is supposed to be a heavy duty truck for pulling trailers and this is the best transmission they can find? It's a pile of sh*t to me.
