I have a 96 explorer 4.0 4wd, failed emissions DTC codes P0125, P0756, P0340....are these costly repairs?

P0125 is Insufficient Coolant Temp For Closed Loop Fuel Control

P0756 is Shift Solenoid B Performance or Stuck Off
P0340 is Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction

The P0125 can probably be cleared by replacing the thermostat. That part is under $15.00
The P0340 can probably be cleared by replaceing the Cam position sensor. That part is about $25.00

The P0756 is a transmission issue and It will involve removing the fluid pan and taking out the valve body to get to the solenoid.

The thermostat and cam sensor should take about an hour of shop time to change so I would figure about $150.00 to $200.00..Depends on the shop and if there is a minumum charge. Some shops charge 4 hrs. min.

the trans issue may get involved so I don't really want to make a guess, but I would say less than $500.00, depends on what all is involved in getting to the solenoid and changing it.

Does the 3.0l transmission fit on the 4.0l engine


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.

No this is not a complete trans failure this trans only uses those two solenoids so if it comes down to it replace those two which are in the pan. If all three codes came at the same time try running a ground strap from the frame to the trans, those codes do often occur with bad grounds!
