1990 Bronco **Need Advice and help**

Hey guys im new to the site and finaly able to pick up a new project. I have a 1990 Bronco 5.0l every thing stock atm but what do you expect for $400.

ATM i need a tranny for it but im not sure what will work in it or what i should get. ATM its got the stock E4OD or at least thats what i think it has in it. It dont work though and needs to be rebuilt or replaced. so what trannys will work on this year and which ones are better then the rest.

Im at work so i dont have pics but when i get home i will post some pics up..

if it is the e40d then you have to replace it with an e4od try to find a 95 or better e4od

Does it have an overdrive switch on the dash and a P-R-N-D-2-1 pattern? Then its an E40D.

No switch and a P-R-N-OD-D-1 pattern and its an AOD.

Ive never seen a bronco with a C6 up close, but id imagine the shift pattern would be P-R-N-D-2-1, as it has no overdrive.

Id replace whatever it has with a C6 personally. The AOD's are garbage and the early E40D's are not much better.

If its got an AOD, the C6 is pretty much bolt in. Its an inch or two shorter, so driveshafts may have to be modified.
Ive seen the E4OD replaced with a C6 before, but id imagine its a pita wiring wise.

I found a guy on craigslist who has an auto tranny out of a 93 F-150 4x4 5.0l he said he wasnt sure if it was an e4od or not im going to take a look at it today, if it doesnt have the stamp how would i figure out what tranny it is.

Look up a vin decoder. You can decode the tag on the door and identify the trans. Also there are sites that illustrate the difference in the trans pan.

Ya i found that out. The AOD tranny only has 14 bolts on the oil pan and the E4OD has 20 bolts. So i have an AOD tranny in my truck. I got one lined up for now its coming out of an 86 the guy only wants $100 and says its still in his truck so i can test drive it before he pulls it.

Other then checking the fluid and making sure it dont smell burnt and no sliping in any of the gears what else should i look for while inspecting this tranny? I know these AOD trannys are known for having problems.

So the guy back out of the deal on the AOD tranny.. Can any body tell me for sure the size difference in the C6 VS the AOD, and how much would it cost to get a mod done to my drive lines..
