Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
You can update to a newer transmission, but only the dealer can tell you what transmissions will work. The TCM or transmission control module will need to be re-flashed with the software for the transmission that is going in the truck too. Yo won't need a new TCM, just a re-flash.
Please understand that I don't know your skill level or toolsyou have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace arepair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have todeliver bad news:)If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatlyappreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and Iwill still assist you after you have rated me too if anotherquestion pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you untilyou rate me
I think that guy was wrong, you're not putting a Ford transmission in there.
Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars nowand keep this link in case you need me again later on.I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me
