Asked by Jul 08, 2016 at 06:59 PM about the 1995 Ford Explorer 4 Dr Eddie Bauer 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have a 1995 explorer that the automatic transmission went out in and now id
like to instead put a manual 5 speed transmission with 4 wheel drive back in.
The old automatic transmission also had 4 wheel drive.

1 Answer


First check and see if the transmission you want to put in was available in the 95 model. You may need a longer or shorter drive shaft due to the length of the transmission. You may have PCM problems if the transmission you want to put in is electronic.
