Will a 2001 E4OD transmission fit my 96 F150

I have a '96 F150 XLT 4x4 5.4L with a shot E4OD tranny and want to know if I can bolt up an E4OD from a 2001 F250 4x4, also a 5.4L. Are the bolt patterns the same? Will the electronics work?

I would say that physically the transmission may fit due to the engine sizes being the same, but the 96 F150 is a E4OD transmission and the 01 is a 4R70W transmission, they do not work the same electrically.

I have a 94 Ford f150 that drives in first but revs high until it hits 2nd gear then drives normal is my tranny slipping

chances are that you have an E4OD transmission. It a good transmission, however it's electronically controlled (the E, in E4OD). What this means is that many things outside of the transmission itself can cause the transmission to act up. First thing's first... ensure that your fluid level is sufficient. Then, click the link below to read the thread about the E4OD diagnosis process. good luck.

I have a 94 f350 2wd 460 auto how can i tell if i have a e4od, or a 4r100 tranny? and can a 2wd tranny be converted to a4wd tranny? thanks bob.

the E4Od does not have a bypass cooler line on the case. The 4R100 has the bypass cooler it is located on the passenger side if the trans. it goes from the rear cooler line follows the case to the front cooler line, and is attached with 7/8" banjo bolts. the bypass cooler was designed to keep the fluid in the transmission until it reached operating temp it "bypasses the cooler at the radiator until trans fluid needs to b cooled

I have a 96 F150 and I need to replace my clutch. My tranny code is M which should be the M5OD-R2 (correct?) I'm not sure if my clutch plate is a 10in or an 11 in.

You will take old parts in so no need to know ahead of time what size.
Basically clutch sandwiched between engine and transmission.
Transmission usually easiest to remove.
Drive shaft first.
If starter on tranny, then remove batter cable.
Sometimes ground strap.
Speedo cable, backup lights cable, etc.
Small bolts on bottom plate.
Support transmission and engine separately.
Some trucks have removable tunnel cover, which makes it much easier.
6 large bolts between engine and bellhouseing.
Lower transmission and back of engine only enough so you can slde transmission back.
Then slide it back out of engine and clutch.
Usually about 6 inches or less.
Then get it out of the way.
About 10 bolts on pressure plate.
Do diagonally and in steps.
Friction disk sandwiched between pressure plate and flywheel, will just fall out.
Throw out bearing is on fork back in bellhousing of tranny.

Check pilot busing in center of flywheel.
Supports tranny shaft, so must be good, well greased, no rust, no binding.

Install is reverse of procedure, except you need to hold the friction disk in center, while tightening pressure plate. They sell a cheap plastice stub shaft substitute that you can buy or improvise. But important, because you will be trying to get that heavy transmission with long imput shaft back through the fiction disk hub and into pilot busing. Alignment is critical. Sometimes turing engine helps.
Extra long bolts temporarity, also helps. A little rocking and shoving. Constantly compare gap on bottom and top of bellhousing to engine.
When it slides in, youwll know, and an bolt it back up. But don't try to just force it.
Also don't over tighern pressure plate bolts, because they are small. Use torque wrench.

Transmission swapp

The difference that you're going to find is that the bellhousings are different. The trans out of the 5.0L will not bolt to the back of the 7.5L engine that you have.

1990 f150 transmission up shift to early

your modulator valve is unhooked, or bad. The modulator valve is what tells the transmission when to shift and what gear to shift to. It is located on either side of the transmission depending on the model, Im not sure which side your perticular model be on but it looks like a spark advance. I hope that helps you out.
