:salute: Will a 1994 Explorer A4LD 4X4 work in a 1995 Aerostar E-4WD? I found one with the 4.0L motor for $450. It has 120,000 miles. I can hear it run and drive it. What do I look for. Thank you. :thumbsup:

They are interchangeable if you have a 4.0L OHV engine like the Explorer. The 3.0L bell housing is different. The extension housing on the transmission is the same on both the E-4WD Aerostar & 4WD Explorer.

Make sure that the transmission fluid is red (not black), and does not have a burned smell. Check the seals for leaks. You could check the bands with a torque wrench to make sure that they are not broken. Be careful not to break them in the process. Check the vacuum line going to the modulator for leaking transmission fluid.

I ran into an issue when I swapped my A4LD from a 95 aerostar to a 92 Ex. The shift arms are different and had to be swapped.

I will be adding pics to that thread soon to help it make more sense.

Other than the shift arm, the trans swap was straight across. Also the motor swap would be straight across.

I could move that thread into this section since it has to do with Aerostar/Explorer compatibility if it's OK with you. Sometimes people come into this section to see what they could swap between both vehicles.
