I bought a parts car to fix my Taurus with a blown motor, and now shortly after I've come across another Taurus with a bad transmission and subframe which is perfect since the parts car I swiped only the engine so I can take 1 parts car and fix 2 vehicles.


Problem is, parts car is a '03 Taurus SE with a Vulcan engine and I'm sure the AX4N transmission, the one I'm looking at is a '05 with a Vulcan engine and looking at carpart.com I guess the '05 only came with the AX4N transmission regaurdless of motor choice. But they don't list them as being a direct swap

Is this like the engine where it's only a matter of swapping over some electrical or sensors to make it work or is it a absolute no go putting a '03 tranny in a '05 taurus?

Thanks in advance

The gearing in the 05 will be 3.98 final and the 03 may be 3.77, it changed over either in 04 or partway through 03. that's all I can think of that might be different any sensors should swap over.
