Selecting a Transmission

Need some help getting the right transmission. I have a 92 ranger that needs a new tranny. Been calling around junk yards and shops. Is there a link that will tell me what years are interchangeable or can somebody tell me? I have found different years. the engine is a 3.0 6 cylinder. Thanks

are you sure you have a 3.0 and not a 2.9?

Is it specific to the year or will a 93, 94, 91 etc work?

Hey Downey. I was told it was a 3.0 6 cylinder but I will check into it further to make sure.

They were available. Shaklakan has a 92 3.0.

I believe the tranny is the same but the 95? and up trucks use a speed sensor instead of a cable driven speedo.

Well I have the 3.0 L engine. It says on a tag up by the radiator. I found a 1998 with a 2.05L engine. It says on the chart above that it is the same tranny. I have no idea about buying trannys. What does everybody think? Or should I get the guy to look at it?
Where is the tag located on it?

I have having a hard time crossing over these trannys. I found a M50 in a 98. Is that the same as M50 I have? Or is there different trannys for different engines? And what about the speed sensor?
Thanks
