3 speed with OD is the 4R55E (OD being the 4th gear), I have it and mines a 98. But if it's 4 speed with OD then it's the 5R55E (OD being the 5th).

Why do you ask?

The OP has a 3.0L, so he does not have a 4R55E or a 5R55E.

The 3.0L and the 4-cylinders came with the 4R44E or 5R44E.
The 4.0L used the 4R55E and the 5R55E.

The 44 has a lower input torque rating than the 55 (440 ft-lb vs 550 ft-lb).

4R44E
The 4R44E was an updated version of the A4LD with full electronic control. Introduced in 1995, it was used in four-cylinder Rangers.

Applications:

19951996 Ford Explorer
19952000 Mazda B-Series
19952001 Ford Ranger
19961997 Ford Aerostar
19951998 Ford Scorpio
[edit]
4R55E
The 4R55E was a stronger version of the 4R44E, again with full electronic control. It was used in six- and eight-cylinder versions of the Ranger and Explorer.

Applications:

19951996 Ford Explorer
19952001 Ford Ranger
19961997 Ford Aerostar
[edit]
5R55E
The 5R55E, though mechanically similar to the 4-speed 4R55E, was a five-speed transmission, the first produced by an American maker. It was designed for the high-torque 4.0 L Cologne SOHC V6.

Applications:

19972000 Mazda B-Series

Yes, Wikipedia is wrong. What I posted is correct.

Also, the 5.0L V8 Explorers used the 4R70W, not the 4R55E as stated in the quote.

Here's the problem:

Welcome to Wikipedia,
the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
That makes it a lot like the rest of the Internet - mountains of information but not necessarily correct.
