    Here's a weird one! I have a 1994 Limited Edition Ford Explorer. I was going to do a transmission oil change and also change the filter. I went to Rockauto and ordered the FT85 filter specifically for my transmission. When I loosened the pan and carefully drained the fluid I noticed the filter looked different. I took the existing filter off and compared the two and to my surprise they are different. I asked my friend for help and he did some research to. He called the local Ford dealership service department and they did a check with the VIN number and it came out to the Motocraft FT85 filter, the same one I got from Rockauto. What I did is left the old one in but did flush the old oil out. Surprisingly the pan didn't have metal parts, shavings or debris in it for it's age. I am totally baffled. I have included photos of the old one top and bottom and the new one top and bottom which I couldn't get on. I think the model of my transmission is the 4R55E from our research.....Thanks for any help.....
