VIN is purely a sequential identification number to the vehicle body, nothing else.

The VIN does not designate transmission type. You will need to get the information off of the transmission itself.

Transmission Problem in 1991 Ford Aerostar Van.


I dont think so, no. The transmission in the 4.0 L is a standalone tranny made by Ford. I BELIEVE that the 3.0 L engine uses the same transmission that is used in the Ford Ranger.
