Long story short, I busted my transmission a little over a month ago. Purchasing a new trans
from ford was over $3k, however LKQ had one on hand with less than 5k miles for a little over half that, so I decided to purchase from them. However, before placing my order over the phone with them, I knew the transmission ID in my vehicle was CR33-7003-AB
, however the one that I had purchased was a CR33-7003-AF
. The person over the phone kept reassuring me, that the VIN that I provided for my vehicle will work with my car....
Fast forward couple weeks after being ordered, the shop owner installs the transmission, but contacts me to tell me that my original transmission was machined to receive a sensor/solenoid from my car harness, however, the new transmission was not machined to receive this sensor/solenoid.
Does anyone know what the function of this sensor or solenoid is?
I am about to start a warranty claim with LKQ, but I would rather use the transmission already installed so I can to avoid having to pay for labor twice since I doubt I'll be able to get that money from LKQ although they "guaranteed" it would fit...
Any help with this sticky situation would be greatly appreciated
