non-bird but ford tranny question

A friend of mine has a 1996 explorer 4.0 4-wheel drive with some tranny issue.I was wondering do these have a mlps like our birds and cats?If they do will it give the same type of problems as seen in our cars?Thanks for any help.

Yes, they use a MLPS. check it for codes and see there are any faults recorded.

According to this site: http://www.explorerforum.com/ntrprize/spec1996.htm this has a 4R55E and not a 4R70W. I believe that this tranny is a "upgrade" of the A4LD. I won't even go into what I think about the A4LD at this time, but I also believe the "E" at the end of the model number means it is electronicaly controled. Thus, I will deduce that there is probably some type MLPS on the transmission. Since it is an electronic transmission, you can usually get a transmission shop to do a free "quick" diagnostic on it by connecting to the OBDII and taking it for a spin. This could tell you if it is an electronic component (maybe).

**Please note that this post is filled with assumptions**

Currently In the Short Bus Garage:
2 - '94 T-bird LX's 4.6L (one with 300,000+ miles and one with 200,000+ miles)
1 - '97 Mark VIII LSC - INTECH V8 (120,000+ miles)
1 - '97 F150 XLT 4x4 Flareside, 4.6L (130,000+ miles) - Currently being dismantled and rebuilt with upgrades!
1 - '00 Mustang GT (likes to accelerate with the brake on!), 4.6L (60,000+ miles - only comes out when I need to get somewhere fast.)

oh yeah, and they all have 4R70W's
