Well if you can find one out of a f250 in the 80's wit a 460 the tranny should match an most of the trannys in the f250's have overdrive.

1995 ford f150 truck 302motor what trannsmission did ford install


Hi There,

It should be either a 4R70w or E4OD, check the trans code on the drivers door decal and compare it to this list.

Transmission codes from 1995 Manual M = manual 5 speed overdrive (Mazda?) E = Automatic E40D G = C6 auto U = 4R70W (4spd auto with overdrive) C = manual 5 speed close ratio (Z-F) W = 5 speed H.D. Overdrive Transmission codes start with "TR" then are followed by one of the letters above.

I have a 1986 chev 4x4 need trany for it it has overdrive with th700. What kind of trany can i put in my truck do i need overdrive or will a 1993 down fit on it or not thanxs


You don't need overdrive but you will miss it when it's gone. The majority of transmission swaps are from 3 speeds to an OD transmission. The 700R4 is also a physically bigger transmission. So a swap to a TH400 or 350 would require tailshaft mount & driveshaft mods. Also the shift linkage is mounted in a different spot. It can all be done, the question is, is it worth it? Hope this helps.

If automatic transmission wont work engine block's are not the same, if stander transmission you could swap out bell housing held on with four bolt's from one to the other. Good luck and hope this was very helpful.

Mech or Elec overdrive


According to Haynes Auto Repair Manual, section on automatic transmissions, the 1994 Towncar has the AODE transmission
Baumann Electronic Controls website
URL: http://www.becontrols.com/tech/ch1alphabet.htm
has following:
The Automatic Overdrive (AOD) transmission was introduced in 1980 as Ford's first four-speed automatic overdrive transmission.
The AOD-E transmission is essentially a beefed-up electronically-controlled version of the AOD.
If this doesn't answer your question, you might troll around the website.

Automatic transmission not shifting into 3rd or 4th


call a dealer and they will tell you you are suppose to change your transmission fluid every 2 years or 30,000miles but if you was carrying this much load you may have over heated the transmission so I would shop around and get a good deal at a transmission place where they can replace the filter and the fluid and adjust the bands on the transmission if needed

Tranny swap


You can swap a AOD trans in but is not a heavy duty unit. The E40D is but all electronc and would be expensive.
