all 4.6's came with the 4r70w. a form of AODE. You don't have the better pan (deep sump). What do you mean by good trans? If yours isn't slipping, you could do preventative maintenance and put in Mercon V.

It's a regular ol' 95 4R with the regular ol' pan. I wouldn't call it a "good" transmission, but if it functions like it's supposed to without problems, it certainly isn't a bad one.

Needs more stall.

it doesn't slip at all, but i have noticed that if i put in the correct amount of fluid according to the dipstick, it leaks like crazy when parked. I changed pan gasket, put in new trans filter myself trying to find the leak. No luck on getting it to quit. It stops on its own whenever it reaches a certain level. The trans works just fine except for when its cold. It has a longer than normal delay going from reverse to drive. but then again, it sits for 10-15 days at a time also, and has even sat for 38 days without even being started. having said that, with my remote start it usually starts on the first crank attempt, but every once in a while it takes 2 attempts (2 second crank time, I think). motor does NOT smoke, but it has some issues when cold and the obd2 says excessive egr flow. only being in for a day and a half on most occasions, I dont have the time, or money right now, to deal with the hesitation it has developed. once she warms up though, she will flat out boot scoot boogie with a vengeance!! Made a guy in a mustang mad at 3 separate stop lights. Plus, I just had a $78 4 wheel alignment done to it so it would stop eating tires for breakfast!!

Maybe the o-ring around the dipstick tube is leaking. The tube is bolted to the back of the head (or is it the block, I forgot) with a 10 mm headed bolt. You can get to it with a ratchet wrench from the top or an extension and swivel from the bottom.

I checked that when I replaced the pan gasket and filter but it does not appear to be coming from that area. it appears to be coming from inside the bell hyousing somewhere. that leads me to believe its either a front pump gasket, or the front seal. but that does not explain it leaking only when it is parked for a while??

how do you know it doens't leak when you're driving? check where the fluid lines go into the transmission. If you say it only leaks a lot when it's parked for a while, it's going to be somewhere below the fluid level in the transmission.

The tailshaft seal is well known to go bad.

It usually dies with the driveshaft...

The car does not smoke while being driven. Not with anything at all. I dont smell any trans fluid or any other fluid burning off when driving, either.

It is not the tailshaft seal that is leaking because it only puddles up at the front of the transmission. It makes me thing its the front pump housing gasket, and its a slight possibility its the dipstick tube o-ring, but I am about to burn it down and get something else cause I just dont have the time to figure it all out.
