Will 2004 escape transmission fit into 2002?


Asked by Nov 25, 2012 at 08:14 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After inquiring with several transmission shops, I was told that a 2004 Escape transmission will not work
in a 2002. Both are 3.0 v6 4x4. The 2002 manufacture date is May 2002. What needs to be changed to
make this swap work or are the tranny guys correct? Thanks

Description: 4 Speed Automatic Transmission, FWD/AWD Fits: 2001 - 2004 Ford Escape Tag ID: CD4E Do you have this 2004 transmission already and just want it installed? If that is the case they probably say that so they can sell you one

David, Thanks for the response. I found a 2004 transmission for a pretty good price, but did not buy it because of the information from the transmission guys that only a 2002 will work in a 2002 Escape. They said the electronics will not match up. Thanks again.

I would say it would work also, mechanically they are the same. Just use your existing wiring harness and plugs. Find another transmission mechanic to confirm.

Thanks Tom for the additional information and support . Hope you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving
