I have had the motor rebuild and was told that the transmission would need to be rebuild or replace in the near future.

Hi Justin,

It sounds like you're going to need to find a new transmission for your F150. Here's what to generally expect in terms of parts and labor:

Parts= Transmission $1000-$1500 depending on the quality of the transmission and if you can find one that is used.

Labor= 5 hours-1 day $500-$825 depending on the shop's hourly rate and the skill of the mechanic.

Total=$1,500-$2,325+

Unfortunately, a transmission is one of the most expensive repair jobs out there, and it's not an easy one to tackle yourself if you don't already have an extensive knowledge of working on them or the tools to get the job done.

My advice is to check the resale value of your F150 on Kelly Blue Book and see if it is even worth the cost of a repair. It might be time to go looking for a new truck.
