We specialize in providing professionally remanufactured 4R70W transmissions and high quality used 4R70W transmission, offering them at an affordable price, and shipping them straight to a garage near you. A reconditioned or rebuilt 4R70W transmission for sale has the components that are broken or worn out repaired only. The cheap price reflects the expected performance life of the powertrain.

Remanufactured means that once we have the old transmission apart, we replace all parts with new or re-machined ones to meet or exceed original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications. Your part can also include a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty, which is as good or better compared to the warranty you get at the new auto dealer. Best of all, we keep it affordable.

Our 4R70W Transmission Upgrades

Six-plate direct clutch and four-plate intermediate clutch packs, standard on all models, increase durability and performance.

New EPC solenoid installed for precise pressure control.

New boost valve kit, pressure regulator valve, bypass converter clutch sleeve, and plunger eliminate delayed engagement, shudder, and soft shifting.

Upgraded spiral lock snap ring and staked retainer for intermediate clutch address an OE design flaw and eliminate premature failure.

Updated 1-2 and 2-3 accumulator pistons prevent harsh shifting and premature clutch failure.

New overdrive servo pin sleeve is installed during our servo modification process with custom-designed tooling and bushings.

Completely remanufactured pump with new line bore bushings eliminates leaks and provides superior flow and durability.

Fully remanufactured torque converter is tested for leaks, lockup, concentricity, and balance. Upgrades exceed OE requirements and eliminate the possibility of front seal leaks, premature bushing wear, and vibration

2001 and newer models feature a new 3-4 capacity valve sleeve and an extra-thick zinc-coated Super Tough Plate to eliminate plate cracking and cross leaks caused by repeated stress from the 2-3 accumulator piston spring retainer.

Police, towing, and performance packages include: eightplate direct clutch pack, additional valve body modifications, elevated pressure regulator valve, and other upgrades to increase durability and load capacity.

New custom-spec bushings improve internal fluid flow control and pressure.

Every transmission is cold-and hot-tested using a proprietary dynamometer testing program that includes fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid and a filtration system

4R70W Frequently Asked Questions

The 4R70W is a great 4-speed RWD transmission to swap into your muscle car or replace the one in your stock ride. The 4R70W is capable of handling the torque needed for many performance applications. Our remanufactured 4R70W transmissions are as dependable as a new one without the high price.

The 4R75W is the follow-up transmission to the 4R70W and was released by Ford in 2003. It has a larger ring gear, revised torque converter, new front pump assembly, and speed sensor. It improved shift quality and fuel economy while maintaining the torque found on the original.

As a stock transmission, the 4R70W was engineered to handle up to 425hp. With the right mods, it can support an engine with a peak power zone of over 500hp. A junkyard 4R70W will not likely stand up to such abuse when compared to our quality used or remanufactured versions.

While there is an urban legend that says the 70 in the 4R70W stands for 700 torque, the fact is it was never designed to withstand such extreme conditions. When it made its debut, the fourth gear was increased to .70:1 from the .67:1 ratio found in the predecessor AOD transmission.

4R70W History & Information

In 1979 Ford introduced the Ford AOD transmission in response to the industry demand for more fuel-efficient powertrains. The new automatic transmission included a fourth overdrive gear that was missing in previous builds. After 14 years of use, the AOD and AOD-E were finally replaced by the 4R70W in 1993. It first was installed in the Lincoln Mark VIII and the Ford F-150 pickup trucks. Drivers experienced livelier acceleration, a more durable gear set, and better gas mileage with the 4R70W. Designed for the domestic full-size car, light-duty pickup, and muscle car segment, it would appear as a stock production option in a variety of models including the Ford Thunderbird, Crown Victoria, F-150 Series trucks, and the Ford Mustang. It was generally accepted as a rock-steady transmission for street and performance uses.

The 4R70 remained one of the key components for Ford powertrains through 2004 when the 4R75W took over the top place as the preferred transmission for full-size cars rolling out of the factory. The new 4R75W included new speed sensors, a larger ring gear, and an improved pump and torque converter. Later iterations of the four-speed transmission are referred to as AOD-E, 4R70E, and the 4R75E with the E incorporating the new advanced shift-by-wire technology. The four-speed transmission was phased out as a factory-included part in 2011, retiring along with legendary models such as the Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis, and the Lincoln Town Car.

The new Ford 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission appeared at about the same time as the 4R75W and included six gears instead of four. Its modern design made it the transmission of choice for the Expedition, Transit Van, Lincoln Navigator, and the F-150 with a 3.3L engine. The 4R70W currently enjoys a reputation as a great transmission to install in your late 80s and early 90s performance sports car without spending an exorbitant amount of money. It is no longer manufactured as a complete new crate 4R70W transmission from Ford Motor Company, but OEM components are still made to support the remanufactured and rebuilt supplier markets.

Designed for rear-wheel cars, the 4R70 can be installed in a 4WD truck when paired with the appropriate transfer case. It is also a popular option for gearheads that want to replace their late 70s or 80s AOD transmission, but cannot find the earlier version in good condition. While it will not be a drop-in replacement, you will only need to complete some limited mods to fit the 4R70W. It should be noted that this transmission goes best with the Borg-Warner BW4406 transfer case.
