Will a 5R55S trany (with a V code) out of a 2003 Explorer with a 4.0L SOHC, fit in a 2002 Explorer that has the same motor but has the 5R55W tranny (with an R code) , without any mods. Both are 4x4's.
Tnx for any help.

There is 2 versions of 5R55S. One is for V6 and the other one is for V8. The difference is in the bellhousing.

I'm working on my 2002 and I'm trying to switch to a 2003 5r55s and the forward gears stays in the top gear after looking at the wiring for both the 2002 has 21 wires on the main plug and the 2003 has 30 but the plug will plug in at the transmission just don't work right
