Excursion Transmission Problem

I have a 2001 Excursion 4 X 4, with the 7.3 Diesel engine. Before the 36,000 mile warranty expired I took it to the dealer and had it serviced and inspected, and no problems were found.

I just turned 41,000 miles and up to now I have had no problems. A few days ago when returning to LA from Las Vegas, the outside temp was 114.

I noticed that the engine service soon light had come on. A few minutes later the overdrive light on the shifter started to blink. So I trued to reset it but it would not reset.

I stopped at a truck stop and checked the trans oil level which was OK. When I started to leave the startion, I noticed that the trans was starting to slip in first gear. but once it shifted into second gear, it seams to be OK.

I took it to the dealer the next day and I got a rude awakening!

The 100,000 mile powertrain warranty does not cover the transmission, and the bumper to bumper warranty expired at 36,000 miles.

I was told by the dealer that when they put the test computer on the system, 6 trouble codes came up. all related to the transmission, and that the trans needs a total overhaul or a new factory trans, all at my expense.

The dealer can not tell me what caused the problem only that the trans has to be replaced.

Does anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks,
