Relacement of ford transmission

I have a 4.1 crossfow motor with 3stage auto I want to find out what year and model would I search for to replace the 3stage with a 4speed auto.
I'm doing a custom job on my bedford van and will look for a complete loom out of a ford falcon ute. As will need a loom to run 4 speed correctly.
Model's that I'm looking at are the 1989 Gls and the 1993 XG just wondering if I'm on the right track or does anyone have a better solution,

SOURCE: Radio wiring ford xg ute

On new systems, like the one you bought to replace old one: grey and white are front, purple and green are rear. New wires should be labelled or shown on diagram on radio body. Stripes indicate negative side of speaker.

On your old loom: cut back behind plug, and strip wires at ends. Isolate power and grounds, and any that go hot EVER! Now checking just the remaining wires, use a AA or 9-volt battery, and touch pairs of wires to opposite poles of the battery. If you touch two that go to the same speaker, you will hear a slight static sound at that speaker: label these for that speaker, and so on. Once you get the pairs seperated and labelled by speaker location, the negs will be the striped ones, though you may not find they all have stripes. once you pair them, test in both polarity positions, the correct one will sound better right away. Should be able to reach max volume with little buzz or distortion. If not switch pow and neg sides. Hope this helps, TT

SOURCE: Hi I have got a

I did my best to research this problem back the first time I saw it posted. What I came up with is use the computer from the donor engine/car. Your Neutral switch should also come from the donor in respect this switch is found on the clutch in a manual car not on the trans itself as in a auto. The reverse light will also come from the manual trans, and to find which wire is which in transplant car. Use a jumper wire and probe the harness till the reverse lights come on. I can not find a schematic for these cars on the net. Your best bet will be to get a shop manual for both and find the wires there. I hope to have been some help to you.

What model year transmission is compatible with a 2005 Mazda 3 sport


From Wikipedia.. "The Mazda3 or Mazda 3 (known as the Mazda Axela in Japan) is a compact car manufactured in Japan by the Mazda Motor Corporation. It was introduced in 2003 as a 2004 model, replacing the Familia/323/Proteg?. A performance-oriented version of the Mazda3 is marketed as the Mazdaspeed3 in North America, Mazdaspeed Axela in Japan and the Mazda3 MPS in Europe.
A second generation Mazda3 for the 2010 model year was unveiled in late 2008, with the sedan premiering at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the hatchback at the Bologna Auto Show. For the 2012 model year, Mazda began offering the Mazda3 with their newly developed SkyActiv technology, including a more rigid body, a new direct injection engine, and a new 6-speed transmission.[6]
The current third generation was introduced in mid-2013 as a 2014 model." My guess is the transmission from 2004 to 2009 mike be cross compatible. I would go to Autozone and ask or call the parts department at department at a local Madza dealer.

I change motor&trans together when finished the trans. has no revers or netural


When you changed the motor and transmission, did you use the gearshift control assembly that came with the motor and transmission that you installed?

Or did you do an exact match-up of motor for motor / transmission for transmission and re-use the original gearshift control assembly?

Predicated that the transmission is used, like from a junk yard and had been sitting, it may be defective; or it's just a matter of readjusting the cables from the shifter control assembly to the crossover cables to the gear shift selector at the transmission.

That model production year included a 5-speed manual w/OD transmission; 3-speed automatic; and a 4 speed auto w/OD.

If you don't mind me asking what did you remove from the car?...and what did you replace it with?

Need to replace motor and transmission in a 97 Pontiac Grand AM G


Changing from a 1992 to a 1997 < WILL NOT Be EASY , As you must HAVE the ENTIRE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS , And ALSO the ECM for the older Set up. In the "5" YEARS there Were MANY CHANGES to the ENGINE Components= SENSORS and ACTUATERS .
its just a BETTER IDEA to Stay Whitin a year or 2 when Swaping ENGINES. SIZE OF SENSORS ETC. MAKES IT DIFICULT

Were to find dipstick for auto tranmission on a1998 el falcon


There is no dipstick on this model. Later model falcons with the 4 speed Borg Warner auto have a filler plug in the side of the box, in much the same way as a manual transmission. To check fluid level, you will need to raise the vehicle, making sure it is level, and remove the filler plug. Make sure transmission is in neutral when doing this. If the level is correct, you will have a small dribble of fluid from the hole. if not, top up until fluid gently dribbles out.

95 ford probe se auto. trans. shifts back and forth from 3rd and 4th gear once on hwy. suspect o/d switch or speed/shifting sensors. any ideas?


I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0L that suffered the same problem. The transmission shop Techs insisted the transmission was blown and needed replaced. After doing some research it turn out to be the Park Neutral Switch also known as a Transmission Range Sensor right below the air box. The part cost 54 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it. About a year latter the problem came back. After doing some more research it turn out to be the VSS speed sensor. The part cost 57 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it.
