Not very many difference.. the 4r44e transmission has a couple more electronic componets than the old A4LD. The 4.0 motors DO carry a differant converter..But the basic design is the same. When you get into the 5R55E that's where the difference is.

Macs Transmissions (Houston, TX)

the 4r44e is the light duty transmission, and the 5R55E is " suposedly " the heavy duty one. Made to work on the 4.o v-6. But either one will go out about every 100k or so.

Will a 3.0L engine out of a 1988 ford mini van automatic replace a 2.9L in a 1988 ranger manual 4X4?

The 2.9 engine is a completely different engine family than the 3.0. I had a '91 ranger with the 2.9, and that was coupled to a Mitsibushi transmission, where the 2.3, 3.0, and 4.0 engines with manual transmissions are all coupled to a Mazda r1 manual transmission. My point is this-I do not think that the transmission mounting is the same. There is 2.9 engines on e-bay on occasion.

Will a 1999 Ford Ranger Transmission fit in a 1993 Ford Ranger?

Updated --- No, because starting in 1994 ford started using Mazda engines. So the 1999 ranger will have a whole different transmission than the 1993. Incorrect.-------- Mazda has manufactured transmissions for the Ranger since 1988. The model numbers are the same from 1988 to present, M5OD-R1, with the exception of the 1997 to present 4.0 SOHC, which uses the M5OD-R1HD transmission.
