1998 Ford Taurus Q&A

1998 Ford Taurus Question: transmission interchange

What do I need to know when looking for a used tranny. My trans is a f8dp-ca. Will others work? -
Answer 1
If you are purchasing a trans from a wrecking yard, they will use a interchange book as its quite complicated and make sure your trans comes with a warranty just in case -

Already did that. Got screwed... not that they will not take it back, just in that it was a three hour drive. I need to get my hands on the info for my car out of an interchange book... as I don't trust salvage yards and I don't want to pay a tranny shop. -
Answer 2
Well, then I guess you don't want it fixed!!!!!!! Those numbers mean nothing. Just put the same trans back in and try servicing it on a regular basis. -
