Well, my fight with Ford is quite useless. On Monday the car gets towed back to my mechanic.
My friend is floating me a loan to get a NEW Euro-spec transmission from Bat. the ONLY one they had left. its mine now !
it is designed for a 2001 contour, but fits in the coug just fine. It already has the updated **** tower (this will NOT happen again)
now if only I already had a fidanza flywheel.

Obviously I will be keeping Felinore for a lil while longer.
But she is the last Ford I will ever own.

At this time, I would like to thank you ALL for your support, encouragement and advice.

price from Bat is 1550. shipping is approx 100.

I went with the Bat trans for a few reasons.

the standard mtx-75 from ford is about the same price BUT there is a 600 core charge. since my case is shot, I would lose the core charge.

My mechanic is going to install the trans AND new linkage (need new linkage with the updated tower) for $350
so I am looking at a total of 1900..

I could do it for cheaper with a used trans, but the used ones I find are pre-01 models.. I will pass on having a potential projectile in my trans again..

Vod, sorry for the springs.
