NO the 2 will not interchange the 04 will MOST LIKELY have a 45rfe or 545rfe fully electronic transmission and the 2000 will have a 42re or 46re transmission which was essentially a torqueflight 904 with an overdrive, the bolt pattern was different on those engines as well.

I would need both the vin of the original and doner trucks to verify the transmissions installed originally but it's safe to say you will need a donor truck that matches your truck, according to the hollander interchange (the manual the recyclers use) you will need a 2000 transmission ONLY as it appears it was a 1 year only unit, if you have your zip I can search recyclers near you to see where one MAY be

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
