I am guessing the electronics are different, the connectors are different and the mountings are different. A 92 had an A4LD, who knows what your new one is called, it would be an updated version with many changes. The body and frame are different and suspension too, so the crossmember and exhaust are different.... I'm thinkin even if it was stripped down far enough to get around the differences, the sensors wont plug in. Discussing this with a R+I specialist at a trans shop can say what's definitely what for trying to put one in.


The 99 explorer had two trannys, one for the 4.0 and the other for the V8. 4R70W and the 5R55e.


I notice the A4LD and 4R70W are so far from one another in their name or designation, the designers were making it so you cannot substitute one for another. It would take the processor, harness, and some kind of software. since OBDII was with EEC IV in 95 the parts are opposing in that use of software. It would be easiest to try to put the old style A4LD sensors on the 4R70W. but the actuators would have to be looked into for their requirem. But really, The A4LD was simple and needed a simple overhaul at like 90K. If you want to reinvent the darn thing, why not just repair it. A little ingenuity in finding part sources, some tools, and even if you had to pay a technician, god forbid, you actually paid an american working man, we are being taught to blame him, not this time, an A4LD is french I think. hahaha
