Will a Ford Taurus 2002 SES trans fit a 2000 Ford Taurus SE?

Asked by Jul 14, 2012 at 07:08 AM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought my car not even 6 months later the torque converter went out...instead of buying and taking the time to do all that and possibly still having to have a new trans I have another but not sure if it will fit? Both have on the column shifts etc and both are the same sized motors etc? If the 2002 taurus SES will work in my 2000 ford taurus SE then I will do that because the 2002 is wrecked but still runs great! Please help!

Call your local trans shop and have them cross referance it to see if it is interchange'able if they cant tell you check with dealer,if they cant tell you match it up -you have to check all hook up points, shaft and gear teeth,length,some times only a couple years off will match but they change things sometimes just enough so you cant ,check real good before trying,also you might be able to sell or trade off that 2002 trans to tranny shop for rebuild on your 2000, but it sounds like it would hook up same size motor useually means bell houseing would be the same-check the length of trannys and hook ups you might have a match

There were two transmissions used on the Taurus during this years. AX4N and AX4S. Either one could be from either year. I would check that first because I don't know whether it is as simple as swapping one for the other without reprogramming the computer or some other complications.

If you have both vehicles, check the vin number sequence, if the first five are the same, your golden
