you shouldn't have a problem doing this as Ford used the same motor/transmission combo for many years.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position in a Ford Explorer automatic transmission , once the vehicle speed is fast enough ( my Ford Explorer is 50 MPH ) the automatic transmission will automatically shift into overdrive
If this is an automatic transmission ( no ) * starting with the 1995 model of Ford Explorer the automatic transmission was electronically controlled
The 1996 Ford Explorer overdrive sensor can be found on the right hand side of the transmission. The overdrive sensor will be near the front of the transmission.
The automatic transmission is an A4LD in a 1991 Ford Explorer
You can identify whether or not your 1997 Ford Explorer has an overdrive drum sensor by looking at the identification tag on the transmission. The identification tag will list the overdrive drum sensor.
The automatic transmission is an ( A4LD )
5R55E automatic transmission
four wheel drive low ========================================================= I know that on my Ford EXPLORER the automatic transmission shifts into overdrive around ( 50 miles per hour / 80 kilometers per hour )
The 2006 Ford Explorer has a 5-speed automatic.
If this is an AUTOMATIC transmission ( NO ) * starting with the 1995 model year of the Ford Explorer , the automatic transmission was electronically controlled ( I don't know about the 5 speed manual transmission )
The automatic transmission in a 1995 Ford Explorer is electronically controlled
According to my Haynes repair manual : For a 1994 Ford Explorer A4LD automatic transmission : ( MERCON automatic transmission fluid is used )
The automatic transmission is an A4LD
4R55E automatic transmission
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
I was looking at the ( 2001 ) Ford Explorer Sport Trac Owner Guide and it shows there is an ( O/D OFF ) light in your gauge cluster when the ( overdrive ) is switched off by using the switch on the end of your automatic transmission gear selector
According to the 2006 Ford Explorer owners manual : The 5R55S automatic transmission takes Motorcraft MERCON - V - automatic transmission fluid The 6R60 automatic transmission takes Motorcraft MERCON - SP - automatic transmission fluid
Motorcraft MERCON - V - automatic transmission fluid ( note : the 2002 Ford Explorer 4 door does not have an automatic transmission fluid level dipstick )
The 2002 Ford Explorer AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS take Motorcraft MERCON " V " automatic transmission fluid ***note : starting with the 2002 model year of the Ford Explorer 4 door , there is NO AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID DIPSTICK***
No , starting with the 1995 Ford Explorer the automatic transmission was electronically controlled
we recently replaced our transmission on a 2002 explorer for $2400
1995 was the first year an electronically controlled automatic transmission was used in the Ford Explorer ( I believe it was called the 4R55E ) In the 1992 Ford Explorer an A4LD automatic transmission was used
On the Ford Explorer , on the end of the automatic transmission gear selector lever ( park , reverse etc ) there is a push button that allows you to turn off the OVERDRIVE feature if you wish
My Haynes repair manual shows MERCON automatic transmission fluid
