Transmission

Asked by May 09, 2016 at 04:20 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a bad transmission in my truck. Can I put a
2004 transmission in my truck for a replacement. I
know the 2004 transmission has 2 sensors on it &
my old one just has 1. The mechanic said, my old
one has the sensor towards the rear of it. The 04
has one on the side & one towards the rear. If we
hooked my old wires up to the rear sensor, would
my truck shift ok ?

What did your mechanic say? I'd call a local trans shop to confirm.

I would suspect you will have PCM issues, plus the missing sensor input will probably result in shifting issues. But best to check with pros.
