F150 Transmission: Can I swap a 4r75w transmission for a 4r75e?


Asked by Aug 18, 2014 at 02:04 PM about the 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 F-150 FX4 (New Style) with a 5.4l 4x4. My transmission blew out. Can I swap in another transmission from another F150 as long its 04-08? Can I swap in a transmission from an expedition? My transmission is a 4r75w.

Applications; 4R75W used in: Mercury Marauder Ford Police Interceptor Ford Mustang (GT and Mach 1) 5.4 L V8 2V trucks Ford E-Series Van, and Ford Expedition ...so looks like yes. It's a very strong trans, 4R75E used in: 5.4 L-3v Triton F150

One more question. One those cars that you talked about. Is that a direct bolt in if I swap it? Are the gears different?

They are identical except for an electronic speed sensor on the 'E'. All gear ratios the same with final drive 2.23:1 Have a look at this page: http://www.f150hub.com/trans/4r70w-4r75w.html

Thanks again!


And i guess I can swap an E into my W. Cool

Whoa, I was way wrong, my bad. The final drive is 0.70:1 and Reverse is 2.23:1

So would the 4r75e works to replace 4r75w?

The 04 75w does not have notched center support for tss sensor

Therefore if u putting it in place of an E trans it won't work with out cracking the case open n changing center support

Will a5.0 transmission and t Cass out of a explore . Interchange with a F-150?


Even if a transmission bolts in the changes from year to year may mean that the CEL will always be on even if the transmission works. Electronically controlled transmissions need to be replaced with the exact same part number transmission.
