4R70W Video and Pictures

I found this while searching for info on our transmission.
Complete video of disassembly and assembly, plus pictures of parts. I would recommend downloading and saving in your hard drive. A lot of companies charge money for videos like these.....enjoy.

I originally posted this a long time ago and original link is gone, courtesy of Magindat and the Sunshine State Marauders the above are current links to downloads of the 3 video files. I hope that these videos remain as useful today as they were 3 years ago. Javier.

Is the 4R70W that the '03 models have. The '04 has a 4R75W.

There are differences, but overall those 3 videos contain a wealth of valuable information that applies to more than one specific transmission. It can answer a lot of questions that our members have posed from time to time.

It can make even a novice well informed and have an understanding of what is inside that "mysterious" box right after the engine and before the drive shaft.

Thanks, now we know what the tailshaft is and how it is lubricated, separator plate, accumulator springs, O/D band. mechanical diode shaft, c-clip that likes to come off. It puts a face on some of these components.

You have to check the Door Label.

Code H or U is a 4R70W.
Only Code R is a 4R75W.

It seems there is a bit of overlap between model years in a lot of different areas. Here is a bit of information on the differences between the 4R70W and 4R75W.

Source Blue Oval Forum:

4R75W is an updated 4R70W.
4 is the number of forward gears.
R is Rear drive
75 is the torque capacity of the trans without the zero. Thus 750 ft lb on the input shaft.
W is for Wide ratio.
4R70W is one of the more reliable auto's, so the '75' should be also.


Source Ford.com:

The 2004 Marauder also gets a new 4R75W heavy-duty, four-speed automatic transmission for greater efficiency and low-end torque. Other refinements include the addition of needle bearings and Teflon seals to a new 11.25-inch high-stall-speed torque converter with a one-inch one-way clutch. The new transmission provides quicker upshifts and downshifts, and lets the driver “kick down” into first gear at a higher speed.


This is the most complete explanation I have been able to find in regards to the differences.
