Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

I'm not showing these two to be interchangeable in a used part interchange or by factory new part numbers. 1999-2001 show interchangeable but the 1997 transmission does not show to be interchangeable with any other year.

What's the differences between the transmissions, I assumed with them having the same code on the VIN and been mounted to the same engine they would?I take it they would physically fit but the electronics wouldn't match up?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Also can you confirm what transmission would be factory fitted to the 2000 4.0 Explorer? 4R55E 5R55E ?
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It's a 5R55E.

Unfortunately there isn't a way to know exactly what the differences are. The transmissions are the same type but will not directly interchange, it may be electronics, gear ratios, mounting differences, etc.

just to confirm I'm looking for a 5R55E transmission from a vehicle registered between 1999-2002 fitted with a 4.0 V6 to be a direct fit.
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You'll need a transmission from a 1999-2001 model year vehicle with the E engine code.
