      Hi everyone.
      Happy I found this site, I need help and advice, I have a 1997 ford Explorer V6 auto 4X4, The transmission after 229k miles finally gave up, The rest of the truck is in great shape. The engine is solid and I just dont feel like scraping her out,,,I would like to have your input on my options with her,,,are there different years of trans that will fit or should I just have it rebuilt, I live in upstate New York, Wayne county, any and all advice would be helpful,


      Thanks

      Welcome to this forum! Check the sticky thread on the top of the transmission section called the 5R55E valve body rebuild diary for more information. It might be possible to perform a simple repair such as rebuild the valve body or replace a valve body gasket to get it running again.
