That's totally untrue. The 4.0 is the same Cologne engine it has always
been.

Re: Question about Ford 4.0 ???

Wrong - I get better mileage with my 4.0L auto than I did with my 2.3L.
2002 vs 1994 respectively.

I've heard that the A4LD transmission that was used along with the 4.0 in
the early Explorers ('91- ? SUV) was made by Mazda. That is believable
considering that the Mazda Navajo is pretty much the same thing as an
Explorer. It also explains why the transmissions are crap.

Re: Question about Ford 4.0 ???

Not here. I got around 16-17mpg normal and up to 21 hiway. It was a 5 spd
4x4 ext cab '98.
Now I have a basic '04 2.3L 5spd. When new, I got 24 mpg. It kept climbing
after each new full tank. Now I get 28-29mpg normally, and have hit 31.5mpg
on the hiway. I estimate I could hit 34mpg if I burned a full tank on the
hiway.

Re: Question about Ford 4.0 ???

I'm nearly sure that the A4LD is a Ford transmission. You might be
confusing it with the 5 speed manual "Toyo Kogyo" transmission that Ford has
been using since the 80's. It is a Mazda transmission.
