It may or may not have a tag on the side of the transmission case. But, don't worry. You can identify the tranny by the bolt pattern on the tranny oil pan and the shape. Slide under the Explorer and remember the shape of the oil pan and caount the number of bolts in the pan. Or, you can run the VIN number and it will tell you the tranny model your vehicle came with.

My 1994 chevy pu 4x4 4L60E trans pretty much just stopped working. its always shifted fine and the other night it blew fluid out the dipstick and out of the overflow tube on the top of the trans and n

have a pressure test done on the transmission to determine if there is mechanical failure in side. Remove the pan and do a check of the band and clutch packs as something may have broken . The sudden changing of direction under rpm's will cause damage to the mechanicals in the box.

4x4 K1500 Chevy Truck, 4 wheel drive repair instructions

There are a number of different hub systems so this may not work but it has worked for me on both auto and manual locking hubs. On a flat surface without traffic. Put the trans into neutral, shift the transfer case into 4x4, shift the trans into reverse and back the truck up 15-20 feet. Completely stop and shift trans into drive. See if this has locked the hubs in. If not, you can also try following the same instructions except shifting into 4wd low. Sometimes the hubs need a "bump" to get them to slip into place. Keep In mind that if the 4 wd low select works, you need to shift it back into 4 wd high before continuing! When taking the truck out of 4wd to 2wd, I recommend the same, shift to neutral, select 2wd, back truck up, shift back to drive and check. Its entirely possible that your hubs need maintenance (they're often overlooked) but hopefully this will get you going. Please let me know if thus worked or if I can offer other suggestions. Good luck!

I have a 95 explorer that the o/d light will start flashing.the ****** shops are saying that third gear is slipping, but i don't feelit slipping. just curious what it could possibly be. the error i am...

I would first try changing the fluid and filter. Although the fluid may look like it is brand new, with 100K on the fluid, I can assure you that even if those miles were all highway at steady speed and no load that the fluid has deteriorated and no longer lubricating the internal parts properly and that there is some debris in the ******.

If codes return and shifting problems are still present, there is definite internal failure, possibly the pump or in the clutches. It is a 3-4 shift error. The affected componant are Shift solenoid A or B or internal ****** parts. An engine rpm drop was not detected when the 3-4 shift was commanded by the PCM.

Improper gear selection depending on failure mode and transmission range selector lever position. Refer to Shift Solenoid Operation Chart. Shift errors may also be due to other internal transmission concerns such as stuck valves or damaged friction material.

This fault code means that the trans is going bad and slipping.Theres not much that can be done from the outside. If you choose to fix it, id go with a good used to keep costs down. You can locate one at

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

94 explorer, manual trans. last night while driving, 4x4 and low range lights flash on then off. when I shifted into 5th getting on freeway, lose all drive power as if clutch suddenly went out. 4x4 light...

It sounds like the bearings inside the transfer case are going out, with pressure on it while accelerating its fine, then when you push in the clutch the transfer case gets slack allowing the internal parts to move, causing the lights to flash as gears move causing the shift motor to move. I would start looking for a replacement transfer case.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic

A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
