Im being told and reading so many different things... Im hoping someone here can clarify. Im in DESPERATE need of a transmission for my 2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition. I'm being told that all rangers using the 4.0 , mountaineers, even a few mustangs have the same transmission. Does anyone know for absolute certain which ones will work ?I have someone willing to do the labor for me, I just have to locate a transmission. If anyone can give me a list of transmissions that will definitely fit I will be forever in your debt. Also, (obviously) there are no 2006-2010 explorers in the salvage yard at this time unfortunately.

Thank y'all sooo much for taking the time !!!

Eddie, thanks for the response.
I did indeed try the search function. I also tried googling it which turned up a few threads from this forum. The problem is that I found nothing concrete, just a bunch of opinions like "I'd stick with the 06 -10 explorers to be safe" or "The 97-2011 rangers and all mountaineers with 4.0".... I only get one shot at this and I need ti be certain or as certain as one in my position can be. Time and money are working against me, unfortunately.

It's a v6 so any sohc motor from a 2nd or 3rd gen explorer will probably work they where the same motor up until 11 and I believe the same transmission up until they switched to 6 speed which I'm not exactly sure when that was the mustang's transmission I'm not exactly sure. Do you know if yours is a five or a six speed transmission

The six speed transmissions were only paired with the V8 engines. My guess is any 5R55 from a V6 2002-2010 Explorer will fit physically. I am not sure about the programming to operate it. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a solid answer.

The Ranger does not have the transmission you require. You need a 5R55S unit. If your Explorer is a 4X4 the mustang transmission is out. also.

I have access to a 99, 02 and 07 rangers with the 4.0. Will any of these transmissions work ?

Your not going to have a 5R55E in a 2007 explorer. It’s going to be a 5R55S

Yep, you need the S version. There were few variations of 5R55: W was used behind 2v 4.6 explorers from 02-05

Try this with your zip, it will also find compatible vehicles, probably just Mountaineers.

I see they are pricey, the used ones.

Just for reference, few years ago I bought a reman unit of 5R55S for about 1800 including shipping.
I know you are tight on money but not sure I'd trust one from a salvage yard.

I wouldn’t consider putting a transmission in one of these if the timing guides haven’t been addressed. Both of those repairs would easily cover a car payment for over a year, and get you in a better, more efficient car.

I replaced my 2007 Ford explorer 4.0 Eddie Bauer with a remanufactured one with warranty from Rock Auto. I have been totally satisfied. Price was right.
