Need info on V6 Auto in '96 TBird

I hope I'm not asking a dumb/redundant question, but here goes. My son's '96 V6 TBird is in need of a automatic transmission due to severe slippage in hi gear. When did the AODE years end & the 4R70W years start for the V6 equipped TBirds? I've found a rebuilt trans from a blown engine car & wonder if I can use it in his car. Thank you.

None of these cars ever had the AODE. 89-93 used the AOD and 94-97 used the 4R70W

As long as the 4R70W is from an V6 MN12, it will directly swap over. One from a V8 will not work at all. If it's from a Mustang, you'll have to make some minor changes for it to work.
