    Transmission swap from F-150 (6R60 to 6R80)

    Hey guys, I just got a 2006 4WD V8 Explorer for dirt cheap at an auction and the original transmission is totally shot. I'm thinking to swap in a used one and I'm finding that low mileage 6R80s from 09-10 F-150s are much cheaper and easier to find, plus it'd be a minor upgrade over the stock...

    2.3 Sport mode not downshifting

    I have a Limited with the 2.3 and notice when using sport mode you can accelerate fine but then while the truck slows down it acts like it is stuck in that gear. Does eventually downshift but hangs on for awhile. Anyone else noticing this?

    Keeping My Explorer

    As I pulled onto a highway about a year ago, I thought the transmission slipped a little so I took it to a Ford dealer. They told me the transmission needed to be replaced. I ignored them and it's been running fine for over a year. Then one day it really did disengage entirely and I thought...

    2007 Explorer Transmission "slams" when I hit the gas

    I got my son a really great Explorer for his first car that is in otherwise amazing shape. However, sometimes when I get on the gas a little bit, it "slams" into gear.

    Can I substitute "tags" when replacing transmission?

    the transmission is failing on my 13 XLT 2.0l ecoboost. The current transmission tag is DE9P-7000-LA. Ford seems to sell the same remanufactured replacement (or at least the same tag number EE9Z -7000-ARM) for many different transmissions, which leads me to wonder if there are other...
