They never changed the stamping on the Taurus at least. They did change the way the trans mount attached to the trans for 04.

"X" was Fords original designation for front wheel drive. Examples: The Tempo / Topaz 3 speed ATX with the weird splitter gear partial lockup converter. The original Taurus hybrid controlled (1-2-3 shifts hydraulic controlled, 3-4 shift and TCC lock electrically controlled) was the AXOD - Automatic FWD Overdrive. this morphed into the 100% electronic control AXODE (E for Electronic), which was renamed the A4XS.

RWD example: The original Ford RWD 4 speed auto was the 100% hydraulically controlled AOD (Automatic Overdrive) that appeared in 1980 or so. Early 90s this became the AODE (E for electronic). When the wide ratio gearset appeared a few years later, it became the AODEW, W for wide ratio. This was renamed the 4R70W a few years later: 4 = 4 speed, R = rear wheel drive, 70 = 700 Nm torque capacity, W = wide ratio gearset.

Sam, the METRIC stamped on the pan just means the trans is speced with metric dimensions / used metric bolts. The AOD in my 86 Tbird 5.0 is also stamped METRIC on the pan. My guess is to remind mechanics to use metric wrenches / sockets and that dimensions / tolerances are measured in metric units.
