First, I flush, not change the fluid every 20,000 miles or sooner.
The failure and current mileage was 179,000. I received my order quickly, price was reasonable, and the color matched perfectly. This transmission is found in the Explorer, the Ranger, the Mazda Navajo and even a few Mustangs. Plus after using the 4wheel drive only twice, it would not go into 4 wheel drive.
