Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
You answered your own question.
They don't look the same,so why not return it.
Having owned a Trans Shop, I will tell you, getting a used trans will be the worst auto repair decision of your life.
Your buying something most likely worse than your pulling out of yours.
All Auto Trans need to be perfectly super clean inside to work well.
80% of all failures are due to not changing the fluid every 30,000 miles or two years.
Your best bet is what is called over-the-counter. You drop off your trans at a shop,they rebuild it with the latest updates and you install a rebuilt converter,adding a quart of fluid first.
All transaxles,especially van type ,don't hold up well. Not many see 100K.
You never want to have a front end collision with a van and expect your quality of life to be very good afterward. A larger SUV is safer and rear wheel trans,hold up pretty well.
