      Hi
      Have a 2016 Explorer Limited FWD 3.5L without turbo that was flood damaged.
      So the transmission is not good in it and most be changed.

      The transmission ID is DA8P-7000-CB and I found a Explorer 2014 tranny with ID DA5P-7000-DB and a DA8P-7000-NC

      Will any of these work in my car? I searched but can'
      Find any answers

      Help is much appriciated

      Welcome to the Forum. Maxy.:wave:
      According to the parts site none of those numbers register. What does is;
      DA8Z-7000-K / Trans-Axle1
      EXPLORER; 3.5L; FWD; W/ O TURBO $3,516.70
      Automatic Transmission for 2016 Ford Explorer

      Also, please complete your registration by adding the 'Required' "Trim Level" (Base, XLT, etc.) to your profile for the current 2013 so it appears in the margin. That can be useful info to have at times. The 2016 Limited can be added to a signature. Good luck.
      BTW which trim is the 2014?

      There are 3 transmissions.

      6f50 (non turbo motors without factoryntow package).

      6f55 (3.5l turbo models and non turbo 3.5 wo th factory tow package).

      6f35 (I think it is the 35, this was in the 2.0 and 2.3L turbo motors).

      So do you have the 3.5 or 2.3 in your limited? And do you have the factory tow package?

      Thx
      Can it be that they don' show up in the part list as they are 2014 models and not 2016 ?

      I have seen when searching at the part list it only gives you the latest part number for a part ,not the older partnummber,even if I check my cars transmission ID it dont come up ,the obly nummbers that comes up is the one you sent in previous post.

      Here is the 2014 list; Automatic Transmission for 2014 Ford Explorer Part numbers have been known to change over time.

      Hi so my car is without the TOW package and the DA5P-7000-DB transmission is from a Sport with tow package.
      So its not possible to install a tow transmission into my car ?
      Is my gear box 6F50 then?

      Yes, you have the 6f50, sport has 6f55. I'm not sure whether they are interchangeable.

      I'm guessing it would physically fit but the software is likely different, so it may or may not work as expected. Also a 6F55 transaxle will always have a PTU on it, whereas a 6F50 may or may not. I wouldn't risk it unless someone chimes in and says they've done it before.

      PTU=Power Transfer Unit. It's the right angle drive gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels. All Explorers that use the 6F55 transaxle are all wheel drive, so they all have a PTU. The PTU can be taken off as a unit, but I'm not sure what other parts you might need...that passenger side driveshaft might be different. Not sure you can reprogram the computer. Perhaps others will know more.

      Wait I may be wrong about that. There may be FWD tow package explorers that use 6F55. Those would not have a PTU.

      As far as I know, no member here has ever posted about this kind of issue regarding interchanging transmission types. You may be better off contacting a transmission shop to get some feed back.

      Will try to find a 6F50 but here in Sweden Explorer/Flex/Escape are not sold so the used transmissions don' grow on threes here:)
      I found DA8P-7000-NC and one MC also but don' know if that would work?

      6F55 is a more durable transmission and will fit in place of a 6F50. I'd find a 6F55 if it's possible.

      So you are 100% sure I can use the 6f55 from a 2014 Explorer sport 3.5 with turbo and how package 4wd and install in my 2016 explorer limited 3.5 without turbo and without tow package FWD with 6f50 ?
      Most I reprogram the solinoid strategi in IDS also ?
      Many thx

      If your transmission only got water damage and no holes or cracks in the case you should be able to have ford or a transmission shop rebuild it. Then you will have a new rebuilt transmission.
      Do you have any insurance to cover some of this flood damage?

      Not according to post #16 because a Sport is AWD and would have the PTU. I'm only quoting dudefish, I don't know myself. From what I'm gathering from the posts is that a 6F55 would fit, according to 1995E, but not one with a PTU. Confusing isn't it? As I suggested, why not try calling a transmission shop to see if they can help out. Maybe their technical manuals will have that info. It doesn't seem like you are getting consistent answers here likely because no one has done it. I also wondered why you simply can't have it cleaned out and rebuilt if it was only water damage.

      Well @peterk9 I'm thinking you could probably take off the PTU and replace it with whatever flange or part(s) would go on there for a FWD tow package Explorer. Other parts, like driveshafts and mounts, may also be different for the 6F55 transaxle. It's the software that would concern me most. At the end of the day, it does seem like the simplest and probably cheapest approach would be a rebuild. Maybe circumstances are different in Sweden. :)
