probably can't help but.....

What all could be wrong with a 4r70w for it to be taken out of a car?

I know someone who has one out of a 99 mustang v6. The person that owned it replaced it gave it to the person I know. I can't ask the person who has it what was wrong because they are out of town, but they might not know anyways.

If I bought a rebuild kit would that fix the problem? Or could it be something else other than what that would fix?

This is probably a shot in the dark, but I am mad with my aode right now.

Countless things could be wrong with it, way to many things to list.

A 4r70w is basically a modified aode. alot of the stuff is the same or similar buit the ratios are different.

That should fit, the 3.8 and 5.0 bolt patterns are the same. But, the V6 trans has less clutch plates in it, I think in the direct clutch...they can be rebuilt with the correct clutch setup to run behind a V8, and might as well do the j-mod while you're in there.
