It is on the side of the transmission, it has a vacuum hose from the engine going to it, if trans fluid has gone through the vacuum hose replace it to.

The ford A4LD transmissions are one of the worst transmissions ever manufactured...

When you did the swap , did you flush the lines and use a rebilt torque converter?

1989 ford ranger automatic transmission


Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.

Does the 3.0l transmission fit on the 4.0l engine


Hiya,

There are 5 automatic transmissions used in the Ford Ranger, Explorer and Mountaineer. They may be identified by checking the transmission code on the Safety Standard Certification Label attached to the driver's side door post, in the space marked Trans. The transmissions can also be identified by a tag attached to the lower left hand extension attaching bolt. The transmission codes are as follows:
  • 1991–94 code T is for the A4LD transmission
  • 1995–99 code T is for the 4R44E (2.3L, 2.5L & 3.0L) or 4R55E (4.0L) transmission
  • 1996–99 code U is for the 4R70W (5.0L) transmission
  • 1997–99 code D is for the 5R55E (5-speed automatic) transmission
So, what you need to do now is...establish from a FORD workshop, whether both the A4LD and 4R55E transmissions share the same components and mounting dimensions.

Cheers,

Scott

1986 ford ranger 4x4 2.9l leaks transmission fluid as fast as it will go in not leaking from dipstick tube loks like it is coming from around the flywheel


You are leaking at the converter seal on the pump. Many times this a result of a larger problem and as trans needs to be removed to replace it, have converter neck checked for cracks and support bushing in pump checked as well.
