What Transmission is in my Mustang?
The identification of the Ford Mustang transmission can be determined quite easily. The manual transmission will have three pedals as compared to the Automatic version that has a gas pedal and a brake pedal.
Now that you know whether your Mustang has a transmission that is manually shifted or automated shifting. You now need to identify which specific model transmission model you have. You can begin your search with the warranty tag positioned inside the door on the driver’s side. It can be found on the rear of the door near the door handle. This warranty plate has all of the specifics about the vehicle. This includes the code, the engine code, body trim, Ford warranty number and the paint codes.
You can locate the code on the warranty plate. The code is located in varied positions on the plate, but it is normally listed under a section labeled trans or “TR.” The code is a single letter or a single digit and is located on the right either at the bottom or on top. The code located on the warranty plate can be decoded dependent on the year the vehicle was manufactured. The five-figure code located under the transmission, trans or “TR” heading will inform you of the model of the means of conveyance. The five-digit code can begin with letters or numbers. This information is meaningful and help you sort out which model you have in your car.
If the code on your warranty plate begins with a 5 or with a 2, your edition is a T5 five-speed transmission. This model was used in Ford vehicles from 1983 to 1995 and V6 models from 1994 to 2004. Ford V6 models made from 2005 to 2010 come equipped with a T5 with a clutch and a shifter that is configured differently than earlier models.
If the warranty plate code begins with a 6, your version is a T45 five-speed transmission. This version was utilized in beginning in 1996 and included in some of the 2001 Mustangs. The shift gear and the clutch of the T45 are interchangeable with the T5.
The code that begins with a K is a TR3650 five-speed transmission. These transmissions are used in the Mustang GT that was manufactured in 2001 to 2004 and the Mach1 produced in 2003 to 2004. The Tremec produced transmissions are also used in the Cobra made in 2001. More recently the Ford GT from 2005 to 2010 uses a TR3650 but the configuration of the shifter is not the same as the older models.
There is an edition that is solely used by the 2003 to 2004 Cobra and the 2000 Cobra R. This version is the T56 six-speed. Most shift gears are made exclusively for the T56 without any model years. The next model is manufactured for the 2007 to 2011 vehicles. This model is the Shelby GT500. It contains the TR6060 six-speed. This is a high performance edition and it is made specifically for this vehicle only.
The next model is included in the 2011 vehicle with the 5.0-liter Coyote power place under the hood. This edition is called the MT82 six-speed. It offers unique features and excellent rewards. This edition is exclusively made for the 2011 Ford vehicle; however, the 2011 V6 uses an identical model with a different shift gear.
The AOD or automatic overdrive is one of the automatic transmissions that were made in 1960. This is the first edition that had overdrive. This four-speed replaced the C4 and the C5. The AODE is the sibling to the AOD. The automated overdrive was designed with electronic components. The AODE can use 4R70W gears instead of AODE gears. The gears on the 4R70W and the automated overdrive electronic utilize electronic parts to shift as an alternative to hydraulic power.
The A4LD four-speed was a modified C3 with an added overdrive gear. This was used in Mustangs, Broncos and the Ranger. It was introduced in 1985 with four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines exclusively. Ten years later, the A4LD was replaced by the 4R55E and the 4R44E.
The Thunderbird manufactured in 2003 was utilized to feature Ford’s Select Shift and the 5R55S. This version features excellent acceleration and gear strength. The 5R55S allows someone to act as if he is shifting a manual version without the use of a clutch. This model was used in the Mustangs during 2005 and used until 2010.
