Question 2001 Taurus Transmission Identity?

Can someone tell me how to identify which transmission I have? Door sticker was no help, area left blank.

Thanks, James

Re: 2001 Taurus Transmission Identity?

If you can count pan bolts, you can identify:

AX4S = 17 BOLTS
AX4N = 19 BOLTS

I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology. Visit my blog for cool articles and TSB's: http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/

Just look at the pan. Should have AXOD (AX4S) METRIC or AX4N(4F50N) METRIC stamped on it.

The pan is smooth, no markings at all. I'm needing to order a RF CV shaft and I hope to be able to look into it this weekend. Ball joint for that side is also bad so im gonna kill 2 birds with one stone.

Thank You Sir for the reply

You were right tbird, it was stamped on the pan. AXOD Metric...17 pan bolts

It's been awhile since I was under there & I coulda swore it was a smooth pan.

Thanks again to both you and Rick for the info
