The automatic transmission is an A4LD in a 1991 Ford Explorer
The Ford Explorer was introduced in 1991. There are no 1990 Explorers to take a transmission from.
The transmissions from 1991 - 1994 are the same. So the 1991 transmission will not fit a 1996 explorer.
I dont see why not.
Do I have to drop the maliford to take out the transmission?
The transmissions from 1991 - 1994 Ford Explorers are the same. So the 1995 transmission is different.
The 1995 is a 4R55E ( electronically controlled transmission ) and the 1991 to 1994 Explorers use an A4LD automatic transmission
Should be a plug at the side of the transmission - fill to this level
My transmission change through the Ford dealership was about $2800.
On a 1991 Ford Explorer : The A4LD automatic transmission uses MERCON automatic transmission fluid according to my Haynes Ford Explorer repair manual * the type of fluid used should be engraved into the automatic transmission fluid level dipstick
My Haynes repair manual for the Ford Explorer ( 1991 thru 1995 ) shows MERCON automatic transmission fluid in the automatic transmission
Starting with the 2002 Ford Explorer ( 4 door ) there isn't an automatic transmission fluid dipstick that allows you to refill the transmission . The Ford dealer has a way of checking the transmission fluid level from underneath the vehicle , I couldn't find anything in the 2002 Ford Explorer maintenance schedule so I would ask a Ford dealer . I know that on my 1995 Ford Explorer I've had the dealer use a machine a couple of times that pumps in new transmission fluid through the transmission cooler lines as the old fluid is pumped out
