No, bell housing is diffrent, 3.8 is bigger, calls for a bigger bell housing, 3.0 is smaller so it calls for a smaller bell housing but even so i think they have diffrent bolt patterns. call a dealership or any parts store to be sure i dont what to tell u no and find out that i was wrong, if you like, i would like to know if i was wrong or not so just put another question on my askers list saying if i was wrong or right, my nickname is bloomerjr and i hope i answered you question.

Transmission wont hold Transmission fluid full quart only lasts about a quarter of a mile how do i evaluate the problem and fix it


well, if there isn't a big pile of tranni fluid on the floor it gets hard. 1. Bad radiator letting tranni fluid into the cooling system. 2. Tranni fluid slowing escaping through axle shafts. 3. a leak someplace from the tranni or tranni lines.

Will a transmission #ax4s from 1988 ford windstar fit a 200 windstar with transmission # ax4s


I dont think that will work ....1988 was aod and aode trans

The AXOD-E was renamed AX4S in 1993. In addition to the name change, improvements in the lubrication of the gearset and capacity upgrades were made. A centrifugal piston assembly was implemented in the intermediate clutch position to improve 1st-2nd and 2nd-1st shift quality and an increase in the clutch's durability was made on some models. High energy friction materials were also introduced. A new twin piston torque converter clutch (TCC) was introduced with the AX4S and the AX4N on some models. The transaxle pan on this model will sometimes read "AXOD Metric" since it's based on the AXOD transaxle. The data plate code for this transmission is "L."
Applications:
The Ford AX4S automatic transmission is a four-speed electronic overdrive transmission used in 1995 to 2000 Ford Windstar minivan. The transmission is also used in 1991 to 2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, and 1993 to 1995 Ford Taurus SHO models. The AX4S is a second-generation version of the AXOD and AXOD-E transmissions used in 1986 to 1991 Ford Taurus.

1995 Ford Windstar transmission is slipping and shifting hard


bad news, 1995 ford windstar transmissions fail extremely frequently at about 60000 miles, I would not waste money in a transmission flush as it will most likely not correct the problem. It is a dsign flaw, the transmission cannot handle the torque of the 3,8L engine and the 700Lbs of added weight of the windstar body.
I'd just use it untill it fails...
