4R55E-4 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANS. 5R55E-5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANS. The difference is in the shift strategy that results in 5 speeds, most of the internal components are the same for both gearboxes. Valve bodies are different. Both are electronic, and both were installed primarily behind 4.0 liter 6-cyl engines, 5r55e is an improvement over the 4r44e which in turn owes its legacy to the c3/ a4ld of yesteryear.
If you open the drivers door there should be an information sticker on the latch pillar Under " TR "or " TRANS " , I believe code " D " is the 5R55E and code " T " is the 4R55E
If you have a 95-96 Explorer, you have the 4R tranny. 97-01 will be the 5R.
no they have different ecu's
Short answer NO. Long answer YES. The 5R55E transmission is the exact dimensions as the 4R55E transmission. 5R is a 5 speed, and 4R is a 4 speed. Though, as long as you don't swap the PCM on your Ford, it will stay a 4 speed.There are solenoids and sensors that are not the same, including the TCC (torque converter clutch) and a couple other things.If you are ready for your truck to be down a while, go for it.
The 5R55E transmission wasn't used until the ( 1997 ) ford Explorer , it is an electronically controlled transmission so there are no vacuum hoses In a 1996 Ford Explorer , with the V6 , the 4 speed electronically controlled 4R55E transmission was used , it also doesn't use vacuum hoses
5R55E automatic transmission
For that year, it should be the 5R55E.
I believe that is the 5R55E
It is possible, but not easy. Both transmissions bolt right up to the 4.0L Cologne 60 degree V-6, and are virtually identical in size. The A4LD is a hydraulically-controlled transmission (mostly), and the 5R55E is fully electronic. So you need to get the controls for the 5R55E in there somehow. Some have swapped computers from the 5R55E truck, but there are some sensors in the rest of the truck that are different, so you will get some PCM errors. Some have created hybrid harnesses, and used both computers to control things. There are also aftermarket controllers ($$$). Google and read the Ranger and Explorer forums.
( 5R55E ) automatic transmission with the 4.0 liter - V6 ( OHV and SOHC ) ( 4R70W ) automatic transmission with the 5.0 liter - V8 In a 1998 Ford Explorer according to the Owner Guide
Yes, it will "bolt-up ". That does not mean "interchangable". Hope this helps ST
Yes it will fit correctly.
On models with manual transmission the type is 5-speed syncromesh. On '93-'94 models with automatic transmissions the type is A4LD. On models '95 to present with 4 cylinder and 3 liter V6 engines the type is 4R44E. On models '95 to present with 4 liter V6 engine the types are 4R55E or 5R55E. On 4 wheel drive models the transfer case is Borg Warner 13-15 Manual or Electric Shift.
A 1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer has the 5R55E automatic transmission with the 4.0 liter SOHC , V6 engine , and the 4R70W automatic transmission with the 5.0 liter V8 engine
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)281-394-4951Macstransmissions@gmail.com 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.
There were two automatic transmissions available in the 1999 ford explorer. The 4r70w was used with the 5.0L v8 and the 5r55e used with the 4.0L v6. The manual transmission was a Mitsubishi M50D-R1HD.
The owners manual shows 10.3 quarts , but that is for the entire system : Transmission , torque converter , lines , cooler etc. My Haynes Ford Explorer repair manual shows the 5 quarts for the 4R70W transmission with the 5.0 L ( 302 cubic inch V8 ) and ( 4 quarts for the 5R55E automatic transmission ) to drain and refill the automatic transmission pan , but you actually add slowly and use the dipstick to determine the transmission fluid level from what I understand
You could have a Mazda R-1 five speed manual transmission , or a version of the 4R44E automatic on your 2.3 L or 3.0 L or a version of the 5R55E with your 4.0 L OHV engine
5R55E (v6) drain and fill 4 qts 4R70W (v8) " " " 5 qts Both use Mercon V
according to motorcraft.com it lists ( 5R55E ) ( 5R55W ) ( 5R55S ) automatic transmissions for the 2002 Ford Explorer 4 door models
According to the 2001 Ford Explorer Owner Guide : The automatic transmissions are : For the 4.0 liter SOHC , V6 engine ( 5R55E ) For the 5.0 liter V8 engine ( 4R70W )
