    Take care of it (7.3) and it will go well into the 300k's. Too bad the transmissions are not that sturdy.

    so far so good on my trans in my 2000 but the 99 f-250 powerstroke with 143,000 just got a new trans about a month ago. honestly the 99 is a really nice truck and a great work truck but the trans and 4x4 seem very funny, even with a fresh rebuild its seems a little funny. we'll see how it is as i put more miles on it. anybody know anything about the electric 4x4 system in these trucks and what causes them to fail, checked everything and replaced the motor and switch, checked all my fuses and went threw all my wiring and still nothing.:help:

    Why is the 02 in reverse with the engine not running?

    I think guys really abuse their trucks and then say trannies are weak.

    My 99 7.3 F350 has 152000 on the original tranny. I have a rebuilt sitting in the shop though if it does fail.

    The 02 7.3 F550 is a 6 speed manual. 78000 on the clutch.

    Previously I had a 95 7.3 F350 pickup that went 210000 on the original tranny when I sold it.

    I also had a 97 7.3 F350 dump body that had about 125,000 on it when the rubber part of a line going to the cooler broke on the highway and pump all the fluid out. The transmission failed about 2 weeks later so it was probably directly related.

    And it is corrct to say a properly cared for 7.3 will go 300000+ I know of a few tow rigs that have over 500,000 on them and run like new.

    I ran my 1995 F-350 to 170 k before the tranny failed I think they are a solid tranny... Any transmission will last if it's maintained and not abused.

    Funny thing is hadn't really noticed it was that bad

    The transmissions are not weak, but they do fail on a regular basis. At least in my experience working for a private ambulance company. We have a spare in the black plastic case in the garage at all times. They have worked most of the bugs out of them. My 6.0 PSD squad has 98K on it's first one. The most miles on a PSD i have ever driven had 389K on it. It was our resupply / courier truck. It looked like hell but ran good.

    my 5.4 gasser has 150k on it and still runs great. tranny it starting to act up tho :-( it is starting to shift funny. a seal coating business owned it before me so I am sure it was treated too kindly lol. but was regularly maintained by a ford dealer according to carfax

    My Truck is a baby, 03 7.3 with 83k on it. This winter I bet it got 500 miles put on it. I don't see myself hitting 100k for a few years.

    Tranny is stock and I can tell it's not the same as when I got the truck at 55k, although still runs fine. I try not to beat on it too much.

    Just did the ball joints on it this weekend, what a b*tch of a job, especially outside in the ran all day.
