Ford experts: Xmission question

1996 Ford E-150

I-6 engine



It’s an automatic…doesn’t seem to have OD.

I’m having to go salvage-yard hunting for a driveshaft tomorrow, so any info you think may be helpful in making sure I track down a driveshaft that fits will be helpful. --specific model of the transmission? etc…



I think it’s a 4RW70 automatic transmission (basically an electronic AOD). Your post is a bit fuzzy to me; no OD and you’re looking for a driveshaft?

Working from memory here, is it possible the OD is not functioning due to the OD button not being selected or there is a faulty switch, etc.?
