    Does it look like a 2nd gen or a 3rd gen?

    Ford actually started selling 2002 models in January of 2001, so some 2002 models were built in late 2000.

    Crazy!

    3rd gens began with 5R55W, then switched to 5R55S in either '03 or '04. My '04 is 5R55S. They differ only in the gear ratio of 2nd. gear, but switch one for the other will throw CEL codes for "incorrect gear ratio". imp

    Mine also has "2" as the tenth digit, it has no dipstick for the 5R55W tranny, everything says 2002 for its year and the build date is 7/17/01. It's considered an early build 2002. You should check the sticker on the drivers door pillar for more information.

    "TRANS SR55W"

    That would be 5R55W

    Look at the sticker on the inside driver's door that your vin is on, down near the bottom you'll see the word axle with a number under it, right next to that you'll see TR with a letter code under it, that's your transmission letter code. If it's a V you have a 5R55s. My donor car was an 02 and used the 5R55S
