I originally delivered my 1995 F1 50 pick up truck to Beach Ford for service on a transmission that was still under warranty - the truck was shifting too hard.
After some time, I was advised that my truck may not have a transmission issue and it may be that the PCM or the power control module needed to be replaced. Additionally, I was told that the repair price was $1599.
With some mechanical repair experience myself, I felt that the $1599 price was way too high.
Following the removal of my truck from Beach Ford service, I Purchased the same type of remanufactured PCM that the Ford dealership would purchase, from O’Reilly auto parts.
Following the removal of my truck from Beach Ford service, I Purchased the same type of remanufactured PCM that the Ford dealership would have purchased, from O’Reilly auto parts. My cost was a mere $140. And that was with a one year warranty on the part.
The PCM I Purchased from O’Reilly auto parts came already programmed from the factory. Beach Ford was charging me an additional $140 to program the PCM they were purchasing.
With minor effort, and about after 30 minutes, I was able to switch out the PCM in my truck and now my truck runs fine.
Just wanted to report the vast difference in pricing on this repair.
