    You can try Ford customer rep call and complain, but Ford is notoriously unhelpful! I would first drop the pan on the tranny and look for metal shavings and other debris. I suspect you blew the valve body gasket and that may be all you need to repair. A rebuilt tranny should run 1500-2000 bucks not 3400! Go to http://cartalk.com/content/mechx/find.h
    and enter your zip code. Look for transmission shops that are recommended there. Take it in and get the pan dropped and evaluated before you go to the big expense of a rebuilt unit. If they tell you it is shot, see what they will charge you. I bet it will be a lot less than 3400 bucks! Good luck!
