What Terminator93 said was:
Hint: A Cougar isn't a Panther. Nor are any MN12s.
Panthers are Crown Vics and Grand Marquis.
(And is it necessary for most corrections to have errors? According to Ford build sheets, NO MN12 has an AODE, all had AODs until they switched to 4R70Ws.)
Your right I had a brain fart on the panther term thought we were talking about a 94 thunderbird that the poster asked a question about and confused the word cougar for panther. My mistake.
Hint: Don't hear that term as much on a tccoa forum especially in a thread where its off topic.
(Since were splitting hairs yes the designation changed from generic AODE (automatic over drive electric) to 4r70w with the redesign.)
PS to the original poster. Any Oreilly autoparts has a really nice OBDII scanner ($500 unit) they will let you use in the lot for free and it works just fine with my 94 t-bird.
