Do you know if your truck had a 4R44E transmission that come out of it? or was it an A4LD transmission? thank you.

Mazda Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 4 months ago

They are not interchangeable. but the 3.0L engine could have gotten the 4R44E or the A4LD. (your donor transmission from the B3000) Your truck the B4000 likely had the A4LD being you have a 4.0L engine in yours.

Mazda Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 4 months ago

The 4R44E is all electronic, and has 4 solenoids in the valve body. The A4LD is not. it has just two solenoids in the valve body.

So look at the wiring harness and the plug on your transmission. count the pins, see if the connector looks like it will fit.

Do you still have your old transmission that came out of the truck?

3 pins motor is 4.0
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
still have it
Mazda Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Alright, so you just have a 3 pin harness on your truck correct? the 4R44E transmission connector looks like this. if you don't have that on your truck and the donor transmission doesn't have this connector and it will plug right in, then you have the right one.
