You'll need the transmission from an 88-90 AXOD (not AXOD-E from a 1991+). Has to be from a 3.8L, as the 3.0 and 3.8L use different valve body setups.
So you'll need to get the transmission from a 1988-1990 AXOD car. Has to be a 3.8L/232ci model. You can use it from a Mercury Sable, Ford Taurus, or a Lincoln Continental of the model range listed above.
-E version won't work.
I would also suggest replacing the radiator if you find coolant contaminating the transmission fluid and vice versa. Flush both systems as well to purge them of the incorrect fluids.
