ford trans question

Ok I have a 96 ford f150 4x4 with what I think is an 4r70w. People are telling me its not a 4r70w that its an aode because ford didn't use it in the trucks until 97. The door has a U code for the trans. Anyone able to help me so I know what trans to buy?

A 14 bolt pan would indicate an old style AOD, which has not been in an F-150 since 1993.

The E4OD will have a 20 bolt pan.

The AODE/4R70W will have 16 bolts.

The AODE and 4R70W are identical, except that the 4R70W has a bolt pattern to fit the newet 4.6L and 5.4L modular V8's not found in trucks until '97.

Your truck will have an AODE or an E4OD, with the latter being much more common.

Code U was used for both an AOD-E and 4R70W, as I said in the above post, they are essentially the sametransmission except that the AOD-E was used for pre-modular engines, and the 4R70W was used for the Modular engines (4.6L / 5.4L)
