According to this website;

You have an A4LD transmission whether it is a 2wd or a 4wd.

Answer

There were three transmissions available in 1989. There was the Mitsubishi unit that was often coupled with the 2.9 liter engine and the Mazda M5OD (which is in my 1992 Ranger) for the manual transmissions. Then, there was the A4LD automatic.
