  • Every transmission comes with a remanufactured and enhanced torque converter.
  • To prevent front seal leaks, vibration, and early bushing wear, all torque converters undergo testing for leaks, lock-up functionality, concentricity, and balance.
  • Independently tested, each fully remanufactured valve body includes a comprehensive system correction and recalibration kit.
  • Valves susceptible to wear are meticulously restored to exact specifications and vacuum tested to ensure they function correctly.
  • Each remanufactured transmission undergoes thorough testing under hot, cold, load conditions, and simulated road tests using our advanced CARS (Computer-Aided Road Simulation) dynamometer program.

This Ford 4R70W transmission is remanufactured with the HIGHEST QUALITY PARTS AVAILABLE.

The Ford 4R70W transmission is a four-speed automatic transmission that was designed for use in select Ford vehicles from 1993 to 2011. It features an all-aluminum case and extension housing, hydraulically-controlled planetary gear sets, and electronic shift control. The transmission also includes overdrive and lock-up torque converter for improved performance and efficiency.

The Ford 4R70W transmission has the following specifications:

  • Gear ratios: 2.84:1 (1st), 1.55:1 (2nd), 1.00:1 (3rd), 0.70:1 (4th)
  • 6-bolt hexagon bolt pattern
    23.3 in (593 mm) transmission length
  • Weight ranging from 200 to 300 pounds (91 to 136 kg)
  • Rated to handle up to 700 lb-ft (949 Nm) of torque

The 4R70W transmission was used in various Ford models during its production years, including the Ford Crown Victoria, Mustang, F-150, Expedition, Explorer, Thunderbird, Mercury Grand Marquis, Mountaineer, Lincoln Town Car, and Navigator. It provided smooth shifting and improved fuel efficiency, making it a reliable choice for many Ford vehicles.

Although the 4R70W transmission was eventually replaced by newer transmission models in Ford vehicles after 2011, it remains a popular choice for truck enthusiasts and can still be found in older Ford vehicles. Its durability and ability to handle high torque make it suitable for heavy-duty applications.


– All models are equipped with six-plate direct clutch and four-plate intermediate clutch packs to enhance both durability and performance.
– Installation of a new EPC solenoid ensures accurate pressure control.
– The introduction of a new boost valve kit, pressure regulator valve, bypass converter clutch sleeve, and plunger resolves issues of delayed engagement, shudder, and soft shifting.
– An upgraded spiral lock snap ring and staked retainer for the intermediate clutch correct an original equipment (OE) design issue, preventing early failure.
– Revised 1-2 and 2-3 accumulator pistons are implemented to eliminate harsh shifting and extend clutch life.
– During our servo modification process, a new overdrive servo pin sleeve is fitted using specially designed tooling and bushings.
– The pump is fully remanufactured with new line bore bushings to stop leaks and ensure enhanced flow and durability.
– A comprehensively remanufactured torque converter undergoes testing for leaks, lockup, concentricity, and balance, with improvements that surpass OE standards to prevent front seal leaks, premature bushing wear, and vibration.
– Models from 2001 onwards are upgraded with a new 3-4 capacity valve sleeve and an extra-thick zinc-coated Super Tough Plate, eliminating issues of plate cracking and cross leaks due to stress from the 2-3 accumulator piston spring retainer.
– Special police, towing, and performance packages are available, featuring an eight-plate direct clutch pack, additional valve body enhancements, a higher pressure regulator valve, and further modifications to boost durability and capacity.
– New, custom-spec bushings are introduced to enhance internal fluid flow control and maintain pressure.
– Each transmission undergoes rigorous testing in both cold and hot conditions with a proprietary dynamometer testing program that includes fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid and an advanced filtration system.
