Buying a new transmission?
1. If the transmission is new then the shop that is selling it would have all of the needed answers to all od your questions !! 2. Its most likely either a used or rebuilt transmission and its best to first call Ford and give them you vehicles VIN so that can cross over what transmission you have !! 3. Then take that information to the shop that has the transmission and ask them as well as finding out if its a used, rebuilt or new transmission. 4. Either way make sure that the transmission that you are planning to buy has all opened ports sealed up !! 5. Check to see what warranty comes with the transmission ? 6. Check to see if the warranty covers labor if it goes bad ? 7. Make sure that whoever is installing it have connected brain cells, meaning that they do know how to install a transmission completely ?
You look to be sure that it comes from a certified shop for transmissions from NAATSA I believe that's the correct name and be sure they give a good warranty if they do that your good to go. they should give at least a 36 month warranty with a 30,000 miles to go with it. Be advised that you may need to replace the tork converter it may have caused the transmission to fail and if you use the same one without it being checked it would void the warranty. Never buy a transmission that does not have a written warranty and READ THE WARRANTY before you sign and if you have any questions ask before you sign. Once you have the new transmission be sure to take it back in a few weeks to have it checked and be sure to change the fluid and filter at 30,000 miles without fail so you don't lose another. Hope this helps good luck.
I don't think it is considered as stealing though i think you can also recycle it.
In our country,it's no legal to do it,but i don't know your country law.Next time,before you do it again, Check your law,it's good for you.
ask your boss. i doubt you will be allowed to take such a valuable commodity.
