At Reman Transmission, we pride ourselves on selling quality transmissions that are built to last. They go through a heavy inspection before they ever leave our facility. We also offer some of the most affordable used transmissions in the industry.
Every refurbished transmission at Reman goes through an extensive re-make process where we address and fix every issue the prior owner and even the manufacturer could not address. Our transmissions often come out better than a brand new, fresh from the factory transmission, because we can address known defects and issues before you receive it. We replace each part with either a new or re-machined part. Re-machined parts are designed to meet or exceed the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) specifications.
Reman believes in our products, so we offer an extended warranty for our transmissions. Remanufactured or rebuilt M5R2 transmissions have a 36-month, unlimited mileage warranty.
If you have any issues with the transmission, bring it back to us so we can address it the right way. We believe our customers deserve quality parts they can count on, and we stand by every piece of equipment that leaves our facility.

M5R2 History & Information
The M5R2 transmission started being used in 1988 by Ford and Mazda along with the M5OD-R1 and M5OD-R4 transmissions. They could be found in Broncos and F series pickup trucks. It was originally built by Mazda, and they continued building and using the Mazda M5R2 transmission through 2011. After nearly 30 years on the market, the M5R2 transmission is often considered one of the most reliable transmissions that you can purchase. You can find this transmission in the following models:
- Ford Bronco
- Ford Everest
- F-250 (only in light-duty models)
- Mazda BT-50
- Thunderbird Super Coupe
- Ford Ranger
- Mercury Cougar
- Econoline Van
The F-150 302 trucks originally had the M5R2 as an optional transmission, so you can certainly use an M5R2 transmission for a 302. Furthermore, this transmission was originally mounted with the Borg-Warner BW1356 transfer case so we recommend it as the best option for 4x4 vehicles with this transmission.
Although the M5R2 transmission has been used in trucks, it really was not designed for heavy hauling. You will only find it in light-duty F-250s, for example, and those are rare. Instead, you might want an upgrade if you want to do more heavy-duty hauling.
The M5R2 transmission is also commonly referred to as M5OD-R2, M4ODR2, and M5R2-RKE. Some consider its predecessor to be the M5OD transmission (Mazda 5-Speed with OverDrive), but it is actually a variant of the M5OD. The Ford M5OD R2 transmission variant is designed for medium-duty, while the R1 is for light duty.
It is a five-speed, manual transmission that can fit engine sizes ranging between 4.2L and 5.8L. They are one of the most affordable alternatives to a brand-new transmission.
The M5R2 transmission is fully synchronized, with brass synchronizer rings in all gears. When it was developed, it was the first of its kind to synchronize reverse gears as well. This new development protected the internal components from being damaged by inadvertent operation. Traditionally, the reverse was not synchronized, which meant that you had to stop the clutch to engage the reverse. Instead, synchronization in the Ford M5R2 transmission does not require you to take any extra steps to reverse.
This transmission also has integral bell housing, increasing power plant stiffness. The bell housing helps avoid resonance that can be harmful to the transmission. It has a hydraulic clutch system with an internal slave cylinder. Because the slave cylinder is internal, if it fails, the entire transmission has to be removed to address the problem. Having a reliable rebuild can help address this issue before it ever becomes a problem, however.
The transmission itself weighs about 115 pounds. Its fluid capacity is 7.6 pints or 3.8 quarts. It has an aluminum case and an aluminum top cover.
