Does a Ford Taurus transmission fit a Ford Windstar?

It depends on what Taurus you have, the 1990-1995 Ford Taurus' use the AXOD and the AXOD-E transmissions. The 1996-2003 Ford Taurus' use the AX4S and some models even use the AX4SN transmissions. I have looked at some info on the Ford Windstar and they sould work, some Windstars use the same transmissions as the Ford Taurus, I think they use the same transmissions as the Taurus from 1993-2000.
