4R55E Frequently Asked Questions
How much power can the 4R55E transmission handle?
The 4-speed 4R55E transmission is rated for 550 ft./lb. torque. The best part is, that a remanufactured 4R55E transmission is often better than a brand-new one since Reman Transmission takes care of all known factory defects during the remanufacturing process. So you can trust that your remanufactured Reman Transmission will likely exceed your expectations.
What kind of transmission fluid and how much fluid does a 4R55E take?
The 4R55E transmission is built for 100% synthetic fluid only. According to manufacturer guidelines, only branded Motorcraft Motorcraft Mercon multi-purpose automatic transmission fluid or a 100% equivalent Mercon fluid should be used in all Ford 4R55E transmissions. Do not mix transmission fluids. Using anything else may result in unexpected negative consequences.
What vehicles have the 4R55E transmission?
In 1995, Ford’s 4-speed A4LD got an upgrade, which turned into a new family of transmissions. The upgrade included fully electronic controls and came in two versions; the 4R44E and the 4R55E. The 4R55E transmission was used in the following vehicles in the U.S.: 1995–2001 Ford Ranger 1995–1997 Ford Aerostar 1995–1996 Ford Explorer 1995–2001 North American Mazda B-Series
What’s the difference between 4R44E and 4R55E?
Transmissions 4R44E and 4R55E are so similar in name that they’re sometimes confused with each other. They’re very different, however, and it’s important to be aware of the difference when ordering a replacement for your old 4R55E transmission. An easy way to tell the difference is if you translate the meaning of the numbers and letters. The 4 indicates four forward gears. The R indicates either a rear-drive platform or 4WD, with a different tail shaft housing. Next comes the double digits, which, for the 4R44E, mean that this transmission is rated for 440 ft./lb. torque (calculated after torque converter multiplication). Finally, the E stands for electronic shifting. So, using that same translation, a big difference between the 4R44E and the 4R55E 4x4 transmission is that the 4R55E is rated for 550 ft./lbs., making it a heavier-duty transmission.
Who makes the 4R55E transmission?
Ford Motor Company, operating the Bordeaux Automatic Transmission Plant in Blanquefort, France, made the 4R55E transmission, which is an upgrade of its previous 4-speed A4LD transmission. Ford announced plans in 2009 to sell the Freshen plant to French Holding France SAS, a steel forging company, which continues in operation.
4R55E History & Information
The 4R55E is a C3 transmission made by Ford Motor Company. It’s part of a family of transmissions that was preceded by the A4LD. Like its predecessors, the 4R55E is a 4-speed transmission. Unlike its predecessors, the 4R55E is made with electronic shifting and rated for 550 ft./lbs. torque instead of the 440 ft./lbs. rating for the 4R44E. The 4R55E was relatively short-lived and replaced rather swiftly with the 5R55E as of 1997. Incidentally. the 4R44E was also replaced nearer the end of the 90s by the 5R44E.
If you’re shopping for a replacement 4R55E, you may be familiar with the problems historically associated with this particular transmission, one of which is an issue of solenoid failure. Since the 4R55E is an electronic transmission, it contains several. Solenoids are something that occasionally gives out, but in this particular transmission, solenoid failure is more common, according to user reports.
Another commonly reported issue with the 4R55E is a lack of 2nd or 4th gear. Often, this happens as a result of the regulator valve on the solenoid being out of the correct position.
Another gear issue is missing 3rd or 4th gears. If the valve spring has been installed incorrectly, or if it’s missing entirely, the 4R55E will fail you when you try to shift into the higher gears.
Yet another solenoid regulator valve problem from being out of place can cause an inability to upshift.
Users often report slippage when moving into 2nd or 3rd gear. This can be caused by a worn intermediate servo pin bore, or if the piston spring is too strong.
No reverse capability is another common issue with the 4R55E, in which case there might be a bad solenoid.
Finally, users frequently talk about a long delay when moving into reverse from a forward gear. This commonly creates an internal leak situation, resulting in reduced pressure in the transmission line.
While all of these problems may sound fairly innocuous, they really aren’t. First of all, they can happen at a critical moment, when you need your car, truck or van to respond quickly. You don’t need to worry about the worst-case scenario if you replace the 4R55E with a used or remanufactured transmission from Reman Transmission. Our remanufactured transmissions often come out better than the original factory version because we take care of all known factory faults, and replace internal components with new parts or newly machined parts.
